Frank Sinatra is a superstar who in the late 1940s and throughout the 1950s could sell a movie at the mere mention of his name. He is a real-life screen enigma who followed Bing Crosby into movies, but superseded the achievements of even that famous star. This book, whilst not ignoring Sinatra's notorious private life, attempts to look mainly at the screen Sinatra to assess his position in the pantheon of Hollywood actors. His list of films is much longer than one at first imagines and deserving of close attention.
