Sinatra: The Man and His Music was telecast on NBC on December 21, 1981. Multi-talented actor and singer Frank Sinatra (1915-1998) won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 1953 (as Maggio in From Here to Eternity) and Grammy Awards for Best Pop Vocal in 1959 ("Come Dance With Me"), 1965 ("It Was a Very Good Year") and 1966 ("Strangers in the Night"). After being with the Harry James Orchestra and Tommy Dorsey, Sinatra struck out on his own, becoming the hero of a generation of "bobby-soxers". "Old Blue Eyes" was popular in venues from casinos to concert halls, and his renditions of such tunes as "My Way" and "New York, New York" are inimitable classics. "The Chairman of the Board" was equally well-known for his philanthropies. He was awarded the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award in 1970. Staple holes at upper left blank corners. 2 file holes at upper blank margins. Lightly creased. Overall, fine condition.
