Frank Sinatra Film Collection on DVD

My husband is a huge Frank Sinatra fan. He has almost all of his songs on his Ipod. He was a great singer! With all of the great music Frank Sinatra put out, it's sometimes easy to forget that he was also a awesome actor. He appeared in alot films.  The Frank Sinatra Film Collection  includes ten of those films. They are presented in chronological order from The Pride And The Passion(1957) to Lady In Cement (1968). My husband was so excited to watch them.

I think in 3 days my husband watched all of the movies and he loved each and everyone. My favorite was called A Hole in the Head.
A Hole In The Head  (1959)

This sweet comedy stars Frank Sinatra as Tony, a guy who runs a hotel in Florida while trying to raise a boy, and who also happens to be broke.  The excellent supporting cast features Edward G. Robinson, Eleanor Parker, Carolyn Jones, Thelma Ritter, Keenan Wynn and Eddie Hodges.  Carolyn Jones is delightful as Shirl, Tony's girlfriend.  And Edward G. Robinson is excellent as Tony's brother, who is used to helping Tony out of financial jams. 

A Hole In The Head also features two songs, "All My Tomorrows" and "High Hopes," written by Sammy Cahn and James Van Heusen.   Though the film is not a musical, "High Hopes" is presented in the fashion of a musical; that is, Frank Sinatra and Eddie Hodges sing it on a park bench, and there is musical accompaniment which isn't seen.  It's the one departure from a generally realistic feel.  A Hole In The Head was directed by Frank Capra.

This film collection has 10 DVDs with the awesome Frank Sinatra movies on them. 
Disc 1: The Pride and the Passion
Disc 2: Kings Go Forth
Disc 3: A Hole in the Head
Disc 4: Can-Can
Disc 5: The Manchurian Candidate
Disc 6: Von Ryan’s Express
Disc 7: Cast a Giant Shadow

Disc 10: Lady in Cement

If you have a Sinatra fan like I do then this collection is a must have or if you just love the old movies you can't go wrong with this set. You have to pick it up and watch them to really get the feel of how great Frank Sinatra was. So get your today!
