As an actor, he appeared in fifty-eight films and won an Academy Award(/knowledge/Academy_Award.html) for his role in From Here to Eternity. His career started in the 1930s and continued into the 1990s. Early years Francis Albert Sinatra (/knowledge/Frank_Sinatra.html) was born in Hoboken, New Jersey, on December 12, 1915, the only child of Italian immigrantsMartin and Natalie Dolly Sinatra. His father was a fire-fighter for the city of Hoboken and his mother was an amateur singer who often sang at socialevents. Sinatra lived in a mainly Italian American working-class neighborhood. His first experience with music came when his uncle gave him aukulele, and on hot summer nights he loved to go outside and sing while playing the instrument. His other interest was boxing. To protect himself in thetough neighborhood he grew up in, he became a competent boxer. In high school he was a generous but pugnacious (likely to fight) individual—thetraits he would carry with him throughout his life.Early in his life Sinatra knew he wanted to become a singer. His influences were Rudy Vallee (/knowledge/Rudy_Vall_e.html) (1901–1986) and BingCrosby (/knowledge/Bing_Crosby.html) (1903–1977). He dropped out of high school and began to sing at small clubs. He got his first Frank Sinatra.

At this time Sinatra sang invarious New Jersey nightclubs, hoping to attract the attention of Swing Era bandleaders. In 1939, he began working on radio station WNEW in NewYork City with bandleader Harry James for $75 per week. That same year he married his longtime sweetheart, Nancy Barbato. They would eventuallyhave three children. The beginning of success  After seven months with Harry James, Sinatra joined Tommy Dorsey (/knowledge/Tommy_Dorsey.html) and his orchestra, causing his career toskyrocket. Dorsey's orchestra was one of the most popular in the land, and it remained so with Sinatra singing with it from 1940 through 1942.During that time, Sinatra performed with the band in his first two movies— Las Vegas Nights (1941) and Ship Ahoy (1942). He began his solo career atthe end of 1942 and continued his meteoric (speedy and brilliant) rise. Fans The Swing Era lasted from 1935 through the end of World War II (1939–45; a war fought between the Axis Powers—Italy, Japan, and Germany—andthe Allies—France, Great Britain, the Soviet (/knowledge/Soviet_Union.html) Union, and the United States). Sinatra was by far the Swing Era's best-known vocalist. His musical roots combined Tin Pan Alley (the song writing center of New York City) and Italian opera. Most important to himthroughout his career would be his insistence on his own style and arrangements for whatever music he sang, thus producing his own unique phrasingof lyrics and melody lines.   YC1 High-precison Press High Accuracy, Low Noise.

He was also an outspoken supporter of Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945) and liberal viewpoints, including racialand religious tolerance. He made many appearances to support charities.Sinatra's wide-shouldered suits and his bow ties were imitated by many men, but his most ardent followers were teenaged girls, nicknamed bobby-soxers for the ankle-high socks they wore. His widespread appeal was further fueled by America's explosive mass media growth in newspapers,magazines, films, record players, and radio stations. Sinatra was the first singer to attract the kind of near hysteria that would later accompany liveappearances by Elvis Presley (1935– 1977) and the Beatles.This type of excitement reached its peak in the Columbus Day riot of October 12, 1944. Thousands of his fans (mostly female) were denied entry intothe already-packed Paramount Theater (/knowledge/Paramount_Theater.html) in New York City. They stormed the streets and vented their frustrationby smashing nearby shop windows. The 1950s There were rumors that Sinatra was connected to the Mafia (organized crime). These stories arose mostly from his socializing with alleged Mafiakingpins (chiefs). He also received bad publicity about his noted bar-room brawls (fights) with customers and reporters. The allegations of underworldactivity were never proven, and no criminal charges were ever made.In 1954 Sinatra appeared in the critically acclaimed film From Here to Eternity (1954). The role won him an Academy Award for best supporting actor.He appeared in nine films in just two years, including Guys and Dolls (1955), Young At Heart (1955), The Tender Trap (1955), The Man With theGolden Arm (1955), and High Society (1956). Sinatra was back on the record charts as well with Young at Heart. Nelson Riddle became his musicalarranger in the 1950s, and he helped Sinatra stay on the record charts throughout the rest of the decade. (In fact, Sinatra stayed on the charts steadilythrough 1967, in spite of rock and roll.) Sinatra did not just record singles. He recorded albums around a central theme with a large collection of songsor ballads. From 1957 through 1966 he had twenty-seven Top Ten albums without producing one Top Ten single.Sinatra's bobby-soxer fans were now adults and Sinatra had shifted smoothly to the role of the aging romantic bachelor. This was signified by theimage of him leaning alone against a lamppost with a raincoat slung over one shoulder. The 1960s Sinatra's hits in the 1960s included It Was a Very Good Year and Strangers in the Night (1966). He reached the top of the singles charts in a duet, Somethin' Stupid, with his daughter Nancy in 1967.Sinatra continued to act in several movies in the 1960s, including Ocean's 11 (1960), The Manchurian Candidate (1962), Robin and the Seven Hoods (1964), and Tony Rome (1967). Many critics felt several of these films had declined in artistic merit. Sinatra became known as part of a group of friendscalled the Rat Pack. It included entertainers Dean Martin (1917–1995), Sammy Davis Jr. (1925–1990), Joey Bishop, and Peter Lawford. My Way    After Sinatra's famous recording of My Way (1969), he made an ill-fated attempt to sing some of the lighter tunes of modern rock composers. This ledto a brief retirement from entertainment (1971 through 1973). At this time he also shifted his politics from liberal to conservative. He had become aclose friend of Ronald Reagan (1911–), helping him in his later successful presidential campaigns.Sinatra's financial empire produced millions of dollars in earnings from investments in films, records, gambling casinos, real estate, missile(/knowledge/Missile.html) parts, and general aviation. He came out of his retirement in 1974 with a renewed interest in older tunes. His return to thelimelight was highlighted by his famous recording of New York, New York (1980) as he entered his sixth decade of entertaining.In 1988 Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., and Dean Martin (/knowledge/Dean_Martin.html) embarked on a cross-country tour. The tour lasted only one week.Sinatra later organized another reunion tour with Shirley MacLaine (1934–) in 1992 and it was an undeniable success.By 1994 Sinatra was experiencing memory lapses, but that did not keep him from performing publicly. He merely added the use of a prompter (devicethat shows the words of a song) to remind him of the lyrics. After celebrating his eightieth birthday at a public tribute, new packages of recordings werereleased and became instant best-sellers. But Sinatra's health continued to deteriorate in the 1990s. On the evening of May 14, 1998, Sinatra died of aheart attack in Los Angeles, California.The audiences who grew up with him and his music were complemented by adoration from younger generations. They have all made Old Blue Eyes one of the most outstanding popular singers of the twentieth (/knowledge/20th_Century_Fox.html) century. For More Information Friedwald, Will. Sinatra!
