Program Description

Event Details

Frank Sinatra conquered records, radio, movies, nightclubs and concerts. But the most elusive entertainment medium for him to conquer was television.  Always a coveted guest star, he never really made it as a TV host until his acclaimed 1965 special, "Frank Sinatra A Man and His Music." We will examine Sinatra’s television work from his video debut in 1950 on the Bob Hope Show, his ill-fated weekly series for CBS (1950-52) and ABC (1957-58), his guest appearances with Milton Berle, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin and Dinah Shore, his brilliant Man and His Music specials, as well as his later concert programs from Caesar’s Palace and Carnegie Hall, plus footage from his legendary 1971 “retirement” concert.  Join Television writer/producer/historian Bob Waldman for this multimedia presentation.
