  • Europe was in a state of revolutionisation The ideal of socialist ideology Italy was in divided, suffered from debt, poverty, limited resources, a largely agricultural economy and poor transportation infrastructure
  • Some pple had the perception that he bribed the doctors but he had his defenders as well. He was hated by the troops, became the most hated man by the armed servicesby end of the war.
  • Sintra had a productive acting career spanning over more 4 decades. During his acting career Sinatra was able to reach a position where he could call the shots. Often movies which were slammed by critics proved otherwise at the box office. Sintra was able to move away from the limited notion of such singing in films to dramatic acting.
  • During his early days, Sinatra was a band singer with Tommy Dorset Orchestra. He onsreen presence started in 1941. He sang the popular charbuster song I’ ll Never Smile Again. His first movie did not bring much limelight and one year later, he appeared again has a band singer. After breaking away from Dorset group, Sinatra appeared in Reveille with Beverly. His 3 minute appearance did a spark an interest with the producers of the time. Following year he got his acting role as a young wealth man in the movie Higher and higher. He continued his acting sting with another movie where he don the role of a singer. The success of Anchors Aweigh shot Frank film career suddenly.
  • Before this movie, you may recall ther first 2 earlier movies Frank displayed his acting and singing talents. He was spotted by a wise producer and got casted together with George Sidney and Kelly in the MCGM Musical Anchors Aweigh.He proved he was a talented man. His singing and dancing received rave reviews. The success provided him the opportunity to sign a 5 year contract with MGM. His next immiediate release was The House I Live In, he appeared only for 10 mins. That movie won a Special Academy Award. His following movies made critics sit up and notice and appreaciate his acting skills. Frank Sinatra was very comforable and was at ease in front of the camera.
  • As all other actors Frank had is fair share of flops and hits. Sinatra wanted to experiment new roles and did the role of a priest in the movie The Miracle of the Bells, which bombed. His other musicial movies like The Kissing Bandit was a box office dud. By then Sinatra was facing marital problems, fatigue and constant bad press. During this time ,he was the Golden Apple Award for the least cooperative Actor. Sinatra quit his hit parade shoe, lost the recording contract and got divorced from Nancy and he remarried Ava Gardner, his co star. For Gardner, this was her third and final marriage!
  • Though On the Town was a box office success , Sinatra following movies failed miserably. He was almost written off by his critics. Whilst his career was flagging his second wife Ava Gardner was flourishing. He followed her to Kenya for a film shoot. There his persuaded head of Columbia picture to cast him in their next star- studded production From Here to Eternity.He wanted to play the role of Angelo Maggio. The role was already assigned for another lead acotr Eli Wallach,but Sinatra did not give up He persuaded the producer that he is willing to accept lower salary and got the knot for the screen test. To his luck, the director favoured him and Eli had other film commitment. Wolla, Sinatra got his life time role that changed his life again! Sintra played a rebellious Italian- American slum kid in the 1953 movie. The film was a box office success and fetched Sinatra’s one and onlt Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. His second stink in Holloywood begin.He acted about in 5 films in 1955. He was again nominated for an Oscar for the movie The Man with the Golden Arm.Sintra tried to don various role. And he was seen as a established actor.
  • His Oscar award and another oscar nomination brought him many assignments for almost half a decade. Sinatra took up several roles and proved his acting and singing talents. In 1956, he produced his feature film Johnny Concho. He played the lead role in this movie as a coward cowboy. His next production was a 1959 movie A hole in the head. During this time he continued acting in muscial movies like High Society. Sintara acting was furthered recognised when he was nominated for the BAFTA Awards twice. His second was for the movie Not as a Stranger, despite being nominated he did not win. Duirng this time, Sinatra also received his first golden goble Award for his portrayal of Joey Evans.. His next golden goble nominatons came for his role in the movie Come Blow Your Horn. During this period, Sinatra tried his second attempt on Televsion series for ABC, this lasted for 2 yrs . This was Sinatra's second attempt at a television series, his first was for CBS between 1950-52. During this five years he worked with notable directors of the time like Michael Anderson( Around the world in 80 days ) and Dean Martin.
  • Moving on, Sinatra career for the next 20 years was indeed very colorful .Sinatra continued to venture in production and further co produced and produced another 5 films. One notable production None but the Brave. This was the first Japanese American co production and the movie was directed by Sinatra himself. It was a war story. Sintra direction was credited but the movie was not a success. Another notable movie was The Manchurian Candidate, Sintra was praised for his acting. The central concept of the film is that the son of a prominent, right-wing political family has been brainwashed as an unwitting assassin for an international Communist conspiracy. The Manchurian Candidate was nationally released on Wednesday, October 24, 1962, at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis . During the fight scene between Frank Sinatra and Henry Silva , Sinatra broke his hand during a movement where he smashed through a table. This resulted in problems with his hand/fingers for several years and is said to be one of the reasons why he pulled out of a starring role in Dirty Harry , having to undertake surgery to alleviate pains. This film was withdrew after the first few months after it released as President Kennedy was shot and killed in Dallas. Sintara continued his passion for war movies, He further acted in movies like Von Ryan Express and more. His movies were slowly loosing their charm at the box office. During this rough patch Warner Bros signed him for their last colloboration. The movie was released in 1967 and was titled The Naked Runner.This was the only movie Sinatra made in Britain.despite poor reviews the movie was a box office success and the first hit after 2 years of flops for Sinatra. His next venture The Detective was a box office success, becoming the 20th highest earning film of the year with $6.5 million taken in box office rentals. Critical reception was mostly good whilst Sinatra delivered one of his most intense and dedicated acting performances. At the age of 55 Sinatra announced that his last film was Dirty Dingus Magee. He expected it to a hit to a movie for all to remember but the movie failed miserably. Though there was constant calls for him to return back to the screen, Sinatra finally said yes after seven years to a three hour television film produced by him. Critics welcomed him back. His next screen apperance in a leading role the last was The First Deadly Sin. The First Deadly Sin failed to make much of an impression at the box office. Four years later in appeared himself in Burt Reynolds Cannonball Run II.
  • Hin career over 40 yrs Sinatra had the charisma to pull the crowd. He memerised many with his acting and singing. Despite acting in more than 50 films, only a handful of the movies were appreciated by the critics. Sinatra only directed once and produced about 6-7 films. Other than films he continued to appear in many Televison series and documents. He acted in 3 Television films and one was his own production. It is interesting to note for his earlier movies, he played a shy and timid role where the his female character will a strong lady who had to teach him about love. Sinatra moved away from these roles and took up more challenging roles and proved himself. Often he was criticised for his temper in filming was he hatred rehearsals and retakes. He was more natural performer as he was able to creep into the characters of his movies.
  • The Golden Apple Award is an American award presented to entertainers by the Hollywood Women's Press Club , usually in recognition not of performance but of behavior. The award has been presented since 1941 and includes categories recognizing actors for being easy to work with, as well as categories chastising actors for being rude or difficult. Interestingly, Sinatra holds the record for winning three times this Golden Apple Award. He did receive 2 life Time Achievement awards for his contribution to cinema. Sinatra is still remembered for his roles and his movies are constantly telecast and reteclast under the classic genre by major television networks.
