Product description

A dandy, a crooner and an actor, talented and scandalous, as close to the Kennedys as to the underworld barons, Frank Sinatra fascinates. Coming from a small town in New Jersey, the bad boy married Ava Gardner and conquered Hollywood, starring in over 60 films and winning an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in 1953 for his role in From Here to Eternity. It's thanks to music, however, that his talent gained worldwide recognition. Nicknamed 'The Voice' by the international press, Sinatra imposed his unique style and sold over 150 million albums in his 62-year career. Sinatra can be seen as a monumental artist. His life is summed up in one of his first hits: 'Nothing but the Best'; he was always associated with the best composers, best musicians and best arrangers. In his personal life it was also the best vintage wine, the most beautiful women and all the extravagant luxury that accompanies a superstar (and some would say a bad boy's) life. Frank Sinatra, Life in Pictures recalls this exceptional journey through a captivating biography and rare and intimate photographs.
