he did it his way
what a far out still considering his song, 'my way.' frank sinatra had many highs and lows in his legendary career, both as a singer and an actor. he kinda rearranges my mind once in awhile. it still surprises me that i love listening to him (the nelson riddle orchestration) as i really did not relate to my mom's loving him. however, we grow up and start to like things whether our parents did or not.
this image is from 'the man with the golden arm', a serious film about addiction. the big score came for sinatra with his role in 'from here to eternity' which won him an oscar. there are plenty of rumors: did ava gardner help him get that role which resurrected his acting career or did he bash someone's head in? i will never know that answer...
