Frank Sinatra Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Francis Albert Sinatra was born on the 12th December 1915, in Hoboken, New Jersey USA into a family of Italian immigrants, and died on the 14th May 1998, in Los Angeles, California, USA. He was a legendary singer, actor, producer and director, widely known by the nickname of ‘Ol’ Blue Eyes’. This outstanding artist is still a cult personality who has influenced many people, and can be compared with Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson and The Beatles. He was named the greatest singer of the 20th century by music critic Robert Christgau. Sinatra was an honourable and highly respected person awarded with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Ronald Reagan, with the Congressional Gold Medal and others. Among countless awards as a singer and actor, he won 11 Grammy Awards as well as three Academy Awards, which are considered to be the most prestigious in the music and film industries respectively. Frank Sinatra accumulated his net worth while being active in the entertainment industry from 1935 to 1996.

How rich was the artist who is known to have sold more than 150 million records around world? Reportedly, the net worth of Frank Sinatra was equal to over $100 million, accumulated during more than 70 years in the entertainment industry.

Frank Sinatra Net Worth $100 Million

The career of Frank Sinatra began in the era of swing, beginning with ‘The Hoboken Four’ teenagers in the early 1930s winning ‘The Major Bowes Amateur Hour’ radio competition, and earning a radio and stage contract. He was then taken on by Harry James in 1939, being included on a number of record releases during that year, but was released to sing with the more popular Tommy Dorsey band at the end of that year, although the contract was somewhat one-sided in favour of the bandleader. Regardless, these were a big break for Sinatra, and contributed the first significant amounts to Frank’s net worth.

During the war years of 1941-45, Sinatra was particularly popular with forces personnel, and by extension with an increasing younger set of fans. He was unfit for service himself because of a perforated eardrum, but supported the war effort with innumerable concerts for the military around the world, often along with other major stars such as Bing Crosby and Bob Hope. However, his career as a solo artist achieved most recognition in the 1950’s, after signing a contract with the record company Columbia Records. His debut album “The Voice of Frank Sinatra” (1946) topped the Billboard Music Chart in the USA, and from then his popularity grew with every album he released, although it waned in the 1960’s. Then, the artist decided to change his record label and signed a contract with Capitol Records. Under this label, Sinatra released many more successful albums certified platinum/gold including “In the Wee Small Hours” (1955), “Songs for Swingin’ Lovers!” (1956), “A Jolly Christmas from Frank Sinatra” (1957), “Frank Sinatra Sings for Only the Lonely” (1958), “Nice ‘n’ Easy” (1960) and others. In 1961, he left the label in order to found his own Reprise Records label. Sinatra continued with successful albums such as “September of My Years” (1965), “A Man and His Music” (1965) and “Strangers in the Night” (1967). A steady decline in record sales and a few unsuccessful films forced him to announce the end of his career in 1971, though after two years he returned and released several successful albums, including “Ol’ Blue Eyes Is Back” (1973), “Some Nice Things I’ve Missed” (1974) and others.

On the whole music was the most important element of Frank Sinatra’s life as well as of his net worth. The next two decades saw a rather more relaxed Sinatra, accepted as one of the leading vocalists of the era, with an easy style attracting audiences spread across generations, and without the need to be so innovative or spectacular. Suffice to say that Frank Sinatra released well over 60 albums during his singing career. His acting career also continued in a similar vein.

Movies were another aspect which increased Sinatra’s net worth as well as adding to his fame; he actually debuted successfully in the post-war movie “Anchors Aweigh” with Gene Kelly in 1945. Frank then became known as one of The Rat Pack group, that was a widely popular group of actors who appeared in many films and on stage together. The group was made up of Humphrey Bogart, Frank Sinatra, Peter Lawford, Sammy Davis Jr., and Dean Martin. Sinatra won Oscars for his roles in the films “The House I Live In” (1945) directed by Mervyn LeRoy and “From Here to Eternity” (1953) directed by Fred Zinnemann. Other varied starring roles included “High Society”, “Pal Joey”(Golden Globe for Best Actor), “The Pride and the Passion”, “Some Came Running”, “Kings Go Forth”, “Ocean’s Eleven” “The List of Adrian Messenger”, “Von Ryan’s Express”, and the outstanding highly original psychological thriller “The Manchurian Candidate” in 1962. Overall Frank Sinatra appeared in over 60 films, produced seven and directed one – “None But the Brave”. He also appeared in over 30 documentaries and TV shows as himself.

It is difficult to name another star who has had such a lengthy, varied and successful career in the entertainment industry as Frank Sinatra. As a crowning glory, Frank is the only celebrity with three stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his contributions to various aspects of the entertainment industry.

Concerning his private life, Frank Sinatra was married four times. His wives were Nancy Barbato (1939–1951), with whom he had three children; Ava Gardner (1951–1957); Mia Farrow (1966–1968) and Barbara Marx (1976–until his death). Being seriously ill for the last few years of his life, suffering from a number of illnesses including bladder cancer, pneumonia, high blood pressure and others, Sinatra died from a heart attack at the age of 82.

#Fact
1Mentioned in Stephen Bishop's hit song "On and On".
2In the 1950's Sinatra visited the UK and an exclusive interview ,for the BBC and with the the respected broadcaster 'David Jacobs' was arranged. At the time the press was full of stories about Sinatra's relationship with Ava Gardner. Shortly before the interview began, Sinatra told Jacobs that he could ask any question's he liked, but, if he asked anything about Ava Gardner he would " shove the microphone down his throat"! The gentlemanly Jacobs knew he meant it but said he never had any intention of asking about his private life and just wanted to talk about his music and career.
3Had a park named after him in New Jersey; he was the town's most famous resident.
4Was a staunch supporter of civil rights and racial equality throughout his career. During his time with the Rat Pack, Sinatra and the other members refused to play anywhere that wouldn't allow Sammy Davis Jr. to perform with them, stating the group was a package deal, and would often boycott or otherwise refuse to do business with venues or promoters who wouldn't book black or other minority performers.
5Sinatra has three stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame: One for music (1637 Vine Street), one for film (1600 Vine Street), and one for television (6538 Hollywood Blvd).
6He appeared in two Best Picture Academy Award winners: From Here to Eternity (1953) and Around the World in Eighty Days (1956).
7Sinatra was classified 4-F during World War II due to a perforated eardrum.
8Was known to be very generous with drivers and often tipped in excess of $100, usually much more than they were making for driving him.
9Disliked the song ''My Way'' but his persona became so associated with it that he ended every concert with it.
10Due to complications and the fact that he had a high birth weight (13-1/2 pounds), at his birth he was thought to have been stillborn until his grandmother revived him with cold tap water.
11Paparazzi were very aware of his legendary temper. One memorable account by Tina Sinatra has a paparazzi snooping around her dad's house, then suddenly finding himself nose-to-nose with Frank himself. Terrified, the photographer leaped into a pool (despite being unable to swim), requiring Frank to fish him out.
12Was known to be very popular with studio musicians. Accounts by people who worked with him agree that he was an absolutely focused professional who knew exactly what he wanted and was quick to express his satisfaction when he got it. There are also stories of him being generous with money to musicians who were in trouble.
13Became a father for the first time at age 24 when his first ex-wife Nancy Barbato gave birth to their daughter Nancy Sandra Sinatra (aka Nancy Sinatra) on June 8, 1940.
14Became a father for the second time at age 28 when his first ex-wife Nancy Barbato gave birth to their son Francis Wayne Sinatra (aka Frank Sinatra Jr.) on January 10, 1944.
15Became a father for the third time at age 32 when his first ex-wife Nancy Barbato gave birth to their daughter Christina Sinatra (aka Tina Sinatra) on June 20, 1948.
16Was a fan of the TV show Magnum, P.I. (1980) and wanted to appear as a guest star. Through Larry Manetti a message was delivered to producer/star Tom Selleck for Tom to give Frank a call. When Tom called, Frank told him that he wanted to appear on Magnum, but that Tom should not worry, because he did not want to be paid, he just wanted his expenses paid. Tom agreed, and asked Frank what kind of story line he wanted for his character. Frank said that he did not care, as long as his character was a tough guy, and that there be a fight scene where Frank knocks someone out. Tom agreed to Frank's terms and concept for the character Frank would play, and Frank did appear on Magnum in 1986, in what would be Frank's last, full acting, non-cameo role. Frank's "expenses" turned out to be a problem for the producers of Magnum and CBS (the network which aired Magnum during its original broadcast run), because Frank's expenses included the costs for his personal jet and his full entourage. The final expenses tally? $300,000 (in 1986 dollars!) This story has been related by Tom Selleck on several talk shows through the years, including on the October 4, 2013 airing of Late Show with David Letterman (1993).
17In 1966 he was given a song to record, and after reading it over once, he despised it. The song was "Strangers in the Night", which turned out to be one of his biggest hits. Even after its success, he still hated the song and took every opportunity to deride it.
18Long before Bobby Troup (the future husband of Sinatra's best friend Julie London) would have a successful solo singing career, he had been a member of Sinatra's Tommy Dorsey & His Orchestra.
19Friends with: Bea Arthur, Julie London, Bobby Troup, Danny Thomas, Telly Savalas, John Forsythe, Jane Wyman, Beverly Garland, Brian Keith, Eddie Albert, Mickey Rooney, Robert Wagner, Ernest Borgnine, Bob Hope, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop, Kirk Douglas, Bill Cullen, Richard Dawson, Rosemary Clooney, Peggy Lee, Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, Tony Bennett, Robert Conrad, Larry Manetti, Robert Conrad, Liza Minnelli, Paul Reubens, Jim Varney, Martin Short and Shirley Jones.
20In his 1947 film It Happened in Brooklyn (1947), Frank introduced the now-standard, "Time After Time", which charted at #17 in 1947. It was later re-recorded, by Frank, in 1959 as the B-side to "French Foreign Legion". In 1960, Frankie Ford's rendition of the song charted at #75 US. Interestingly, that version fared much better than all, in Brooklyn, reaching NYC's Top 10. In 1966. Chris Montez's version peaked at #36 US.
21Was friends with fellow singer Rosemary Clooney. Two members of her family went on to appear in remakes of Sinatra films. Her nephew George Clooney appeared in Ocean's Eleven (2001) and its sequels, in Sinatra's role, while her son Miguel Ferrer appeared in a supporting role in The Manchurian Candidate (2004). Ferrer also voiced Danny Ocean in a Robot Chicken (2005) parody.
22Became a friend of Laurence Harvey, with whom he co-starred in The Manchurian Candidate (1962). According to Sinatra's valet, George Jacobs, Sinatra called him "Ladyboy" in recognition of Harvey's bisexuality. In an interview about the film that was included in the video recording, Sinatra expressed his sorrow that "Larry" was no longer alive.
23Sinatra's valet George Jacobs said that his employer had derogatory nicknames for many of his friends, including "Sheeny" for Cary Grant, "Shanty" for Gene Kelly, "Jew" for Jerry Lewis, "The African Queen" for Johnny Mathis and "Wop" for Dean Martin. His private plane was called "El Dago".
24In his memoir, "Mr. S.: My Life With Frank Sinatra", the legend's valet, George Jacobs, said that Sinatra cried when he heard that the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King had been assassinated, one of the few times he had seen his employer in tears.
25Hated giving autographs.
26While visiting Capitol Records in 1960, he refused to pay the 50-cent entry fee at the parking garage. The attendant had his car towed.
27Throughout his life Sinatra was a strong supporter of Jewish causes. He stepped forward in the early 1940s, when big names were needed to rouse America into saving Europe's remaining Jews, and he sang at an "Action for Palestine" rally (1947). He sat on the board of trustees of the Simon Wiesenthal Center; and he donated over $1 million to Jerusalem 's Hebrew University, which honored him by dedicating the Frank Sinatra International Student Center. As a result of his support for the Jewish State, his movies and records were banned in some Arab countries.
28His version of "New York, New York" is played at Yankee Stadium after every Yankee home win. Liza Minnelli's version is played after every Yankee home loss.
29Like most members of The Rat Pack, Sinatra was known to much prefer the labels "The Clan" and "The Summit".
30On May 10, 1964, Brad Dexter (The Magnificent Seven (1960), among others) saved both Sinatra's life and that of Ruth Koch (wife of producer Howard W. Koch) during production of the World War II film None But the Brave (1965) in Kaui, Hawaii. They were swimming at a beach when they were swept out to sea by the outgoing tide and nearly drowned in high, billowing waves. Dexter swam out and rescued them together, but they were not able to reach shore for nearly 45 minutes. In the waves, Sinatra reportedly became separated and murmured, "It's all over . . . please take care of my kids . . . I'm going to die . . . " Both Sinatra and Koch then fell unconscious for several minutes before two surfers arrived to help Dexter take them to shore. Dexter was later awarded a Red Cross medal for his bravery. Sinatra never forgot it and the two stayed close friends for the rest of their lives.
31While recording the gold "Sinatra Christmas Album" at Cherokee Recording Studios in 1975, he met and shared studio space with glam rocker David Bowie.
32Died the same month as Phil Hartman, who often impersonated him on Saturday Night Live (1975).
33He and Paul Newman are the only people to win an Honorary Oscar, a Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award and a competitive Oscar.
34Frank Capra claimed that Sinatra had the potential to be the best actor there ever was. He once told Frank to quit his musical career and concentrate solely on acting and that if he did he would go down as the greatest actor who ever lived.
35He was awarded 3 Stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Motion Pictures at 1600 Vine Street, for Recording at 1737 Vine Street, and for Television at 6538 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
36All of his single recordings in 1943 which included "Oh What A Beautiful Morning"/ "People Will Say We're In Love" were recorded a cappella with The Bobby Tucker Singers because of a musician's strike.
37He is credited as co-writer of seven songs, including "This Love Of Mine" (1941) and "Mr. Success" (1958).
38His father's name was Martin Anthony Sinatra. His mother's name was Natalie 'Dolly' Garavente, a midwife.
39Has a 62-year span of top-ten albums on Billboard, from "The Voice of Frank Sinatra" which reached #1 in 1946 to "Nothing But the Best", which reached #2 in 2008.
40His sole film as director was the anti-war drama None But the Brave (1965), which was the first Japanese (Toho Studios) and American (Warner Bros. Pictures) co-production.
41All the films he produced made a profit.
42Von Ryan's Express (1965), was his most successful film of the 1960s, grossing over $17 million (US) in 1965.
43When Sinatra first met Mia Farrow in 1964, he was 48 and she was 19, a fact that prompted Dean Martin to quip that he owned a bottle of Scotch older than Farrow.
44Once appeared as a head-and-shoulders shot on MasterCard credit card.
45Was the favorite singer of and a big influence to The Doors front man, Jim Morrison.
46He had a longstanding dislike of Marlon Brando from the time they starred in Guys and Dolls (1955). Sinatra always felt he should have played Brando's part, with Gene Kelly in the other role. Sinatra nicknamed Brando "Mr. Mumbles" while Brando called him "Mr. Baldy".
47In 1981 he was heavily criticized for performing a ten-day gig in South Africa. Jesse Jackson and the United Nations Special Committee on Apartheid publicly condemned him for "collaboratng with the apartheid regime".
48Pictured on a 42¢ USA commemorative postage stamp issued 13 May 2008, one day before the 10th anniversary of his death.
49Mentioned in the song "Its My Life" by Bon Jovi.
50Mentioned in the song "Hey Manhattan!" by Paddy McAloon (aka "Prefab Sprout").
51Elected to the New Jersey Hall of Fame in 2007 for his services to the entertainment industry (inaugural election). Official induction ceremonies held in May 2008.
52Briefly lost the ability to sing after his vocal cords hemorrhaged in 1953. When his voice returned it had an extra dimension which many fans believed made his singing better than before.
53Was a great admirer of John F. Kennedy, campaigning for him in the 1960 presidential election and organizing his inauguration ball on January 20, 1961. In August 1962 Kennedy decided not to stay with Sinatra in Palm Springs, CA, due to recent revelations of Sinatra's longtime ties to various Mafia crime bosses, instead stayed with Bing Crosby--Sinatra's original rival and an active Republican.
54He weighed over 13 pounds at birth, and he had to be delivered by forceps. As a result, one of his ears was nearly severed. Showing no signs of life, he was held by his grandmother under cold, running water. He began to breathe, and cry. His mother - a practical nurse - and his father - a tavern operator - had been hoping for a girl, and had already chosen the name Frances. So they gave him the masculine form of the name: Francis.
55Got the role of Pvt. Maggio in From Here to Eternity (1953) after Eli Wallach passed on it to do a Tennessee Williams play on stage, according to Wallach on a June 20th broadcast of "Morning Sedition" on "Air America Radio.".
56Although the song Sinatra is most identified with is his hit "My Way", he originally didn't want to record it because he thought the song was "self-serving and indulgent.".
57Was the godfather of Linda Thorson's son Trevor.
58Was in talks to appear in The Verdict (1982).
59Has sold over 250 million records worldwide.
60He asked to sing at Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey's 1978 funeral in St. Paul, MN. The officiating minister refused. The job went to Metropolitan Opera baritone Robert Merrill.
61Suffered from dementia in his final years.
62On 20 May 1998, his funeral service was held at the Catholic Church of the Good Shepherd in Beverly Hills, California. Stars in attendance included Kirk Douglas, Gregory Peck, Robert Wagner, Jack Lemmon, Sidney Poitier, Jack Nicholson, Nancy Reagan, Jerry Lewis, Wayne Newton, Johnny Carson, Milton Berle, Bruce Springsteen, Debbie Reynolds, Liza Minnelli, Bob Dylan, Tom Selleck, Tony Bennett, Mickey Rooney, Shirley MacLaine, Robert Stack, Mia Farrow, Bob Newhart, Don Rickles, Sophia Loren, Diahann Carroll, Steve Lawrence, Eydie Gormé, Joey Bishop, Tony Danza, Quincy Jones, Dom DeLuise, Tim Conway, Cuba Gooding Jr., Anthony Quinn, Tony Curtis, Jack Paar, Angie Dickinson, Paul Anka, Ben Vereen, Ed McMahon, Johnny Mathis, Red Buttons, Marlo Thomas, Phil Donahue, Suzanne Pleshette, Lorna Luft, Ann Miller, Dionne Warwick, Mamie Van Doren, Suzanne Somers, James Darren and of course, his children, Frank Sinatra Jr., Tina Sinatra and Nancy Sinatra. Over 1000 Sinatra fans lined the streets outside the church during the funeral and gave him one final round of applause as his flower-draped coffin was carried out of the church. Overhead, a skywriting plane created a giant heart in the sky. Ironically, Sinatra had attended Gary Cooper's funeral at the same church, almost 37 years to the day before his own.
63He was instrumental in reuniting Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin after their decades of estrangement. During an appearance on Lewis' annual telethon for Muscular Dystrophy, Sinatra said that he had a friend who wanted to say hello; then, he escorted Martin onto the stage to a flabbergasted Lewis. The two remained reunited until Martin's death.
64Underwent major surgery for intestinal cancer in 1986.
65Was active in Democratic Party politics from the 1944 presidential election until the late 1960s. In 1970 he supported Ronald Reagan's re-election campaign for Governor of California, and in 1972 he attended the Republican National Convention for the first time.
66Campaigned for Ronald Reagan in the 1980 and 1984 presidential elections.
67Made no further public appearances after suffering a heart attack in January 1997.
68Is one of only five actors/actresses to have both a #1 single and an Oscar for acting. The others are Cher, Barbra Streisand, Jamie Foxx, and Bing Crosby.
69Lee J. Cobb credited Sinatra with saving his life after his career was nearly ruined by his defiance of the House Un-American Activities Committee investigating Communist "subversion" in the film industry. Cobb had defied HUAC for two years, after being named as a supposed Communist by Larry Parks in 1951. During those two years, Cobb's once flourishing career floundered and his wife had to be institutionalized after having a mental breakdown. Finally he agreed to testify as a "friendly" witness, appearing before HUAC in 1953. At the conclusion of his testimony, he praised the committee. Soon after his appearance there he had a massive heart attack. Sinatra--who barely knew Cobb--got him a part in his film The Miracle of the Bells (1948) when no other studio would hire Cobb. In addition, knowing that Cobb was broke, Sinatra paid his hospital bills, then had Cobb stay with him before renting him a luxurious apartment. Cobb believes that Sinatra identified with him as a troubled artist down on his luck, as Sinatra's own career had been in a severe tailspin before he resurrected himself by winning an Oscar for From Here to Eternity (1953). Cobb later said that if it wasn't for Sinatra, he didn't think he would have come through that period alive. Sinatra told Cobb he thought that Cobb was "robbed" when he failed to win the Oscar for his performance as Johnny Friendly in On the Waterfront (1954) (ironically, Sinatra originally had been scheduled to star in the picture, which was filmed in his hometown of Hoboken, NJ, but producer Sam Spiegel gave the role to Marlon Brando when he realized he could raise $1 million in financing for the picture by using Brando versus $500,000 if Sinatra was the star).
70Was considered for the role of Nicky Arnstein in Funny Girl (1968). This was vetoed by Barbra Streisand, as she didn't like him. The role was eventually played by Omar Sharif.
71Godfather of Lorna Luft.
72Sinatra saw Steve McQueen in his western TV series Wanted: Dead or Alive (1958) and requested him to take Sammy Davis Jr.'s role in Never So Few (1959). Davis had said in an interview he thought he was bigger than Sinatra in the entertainment world at that time. Since Davis' role in the film was originally written as a sidekick, it had to be re-written somewhat for McQueen. During filming they got along so well that Sinatra wanted McQueen to appear in Ocean's 11 (1960) as the cowboy Louis Jackson. McQueen was all for it but was convinced otherwise by critic Hedda Hopper, who told him it would not be a wise career move to be known as a Sinatra flunky. McQueen passed on the film, and although there were no hard feelings his brief friendship with Sinatra came to an end.
73Was in line to star in Dirty Harry (1971) as was noted in several trade papers at the time. Irvin Kershner was slated to direct, but Sinatra had to back out of the project because of some trouble with a broken bone in his hand, although it has been suggested that he wanted to act in something lighter after the recent death of his father.
74In 1963 his son Frank Sinatra Jr. was kidnapped. The kidnappers told Frank Sr. to call them from pay phones. During one call he ran out of coins, and briefly feared that it had cost him his son (the kidnappers gave him another chance). He paid the $250,000 ransom, Frank Jr. was returned, and the kidnappers were eventually caught. However, as a result of the payphone scare, Sinatra swore never to be caught without dimes again, and carried a roll of dimes with him constantly until his death.
75Was such a big fan of Chicago's song, "Colour My World" that he offered to write a second stanza to it.
76Called "Something", written by George Harrison and performed by The Beatles, one of his favorite songs.
77Was offered the role of "Don Altobello" in The Godfather: Part III (1990). Even though he had been a vocal critic of the first "Godfather" film, which featured a character based on him, he was intrigued by the offer, reportedly because the first two "Godfather" films had been so successful. Ultimately he declined the offer and the part was played by Eli Wallach, with whom Sinatra had competed for the role of Maggio in From Here to Eternity (1953).
78Owned an extensive collection of electric toy trains. He had coveted electric trains as a boy and set up a track that wove through the path of his career. The train started at a replica of the Hoboken train station.

81Though he had many affairs during his marriage to his first wife Nancy Barbato, it was his relationship with Ava Gardner that finally led to their divorce.
82While on a tour in 1974 which included Australia, Sinatra became enraged by his treatment by members of the Australian press. After a brief scuffle at the airport, he appeared on stage and delivered a hateful tirade against the press, calling them "bums and parasites," and calling the female reporters "buck-and-a-half hookers." In retaliation, the aviation union refused to refuel or otherwise maintain his private jet until he apologized. He never did. He was spirited away in the night after intervention by a high-level union leader.
83He and the other members of the Rat Pack were banned from Marilyn Monroe's funeral by Joe DiMaggio

94In On the Town (1949), he co-sang "New York, New York". Years later he used the song "Theme From New York, New York" (first performed by friend Liza Minnelli, and commonly referred to as simply "New York, New York") as a showstopper in his live performances. In his "Concert For The Americas"(1982) he combined the two songs, using the first verse of the earlier song.

Now, it's time to build one of my own." A few years later, referring to his label's success, he stated, "We may not be a Cadillac yet, but we ain't no Bug [Volkswagen], neither."
108His album "Frank Sinatra Conducts Tone Poems of Color" (Capitol: 1955) not only was rare in the sense that he conducted an orchestra as opposed to singing, but was also the first album to be recorded at the Capitol [Records] Tower, today a prominent landmark at Hollywood and Vine in Los Angeles.
109While filming a kidnapping scene for the film Robin and the 7 Hoods (1964), he learned that his son, singer Frank Sinatra Jr., had been kidnapped from his hotel room in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. For obvious reasons, the scene was never used in the completed film.
110Received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the 1971 Academy Awards for his many contributions to charity over the years. Bob Hope, who hosted the Oscars that year, remarked, "It's interesting how Sinatra announced his retirement, and they gave him a humanitarian award". Sinatra himself hosted or co-hosted the Academy Awards four different times, in 1963, 1969, 1975 and 1985.

Sinatra never acknowledged paternity.
132Had a park named after him in New Jersey; he was the town's most famous resident.
133Was a staunch supporter of civil rights and racial equality throughout his career. During his time with the Rat Pack, Sinatra and the other members refused to play anywhere that wouldn't allow Sammy Davis, Jr. to perform with them, stating the group was a package deal, and would often boycott or otherwise refuse to do business with venues or promoters who wouldn't book black or other minority performers.

Terrified, the photographer leaped into a pool (despite being unable to swim), requiring Frank to fish him out.
141Was known to be very popular with studio musicians.

145Was a fan of the TV show Magnum, P.I. (1980) and wanted to appear as a guest star. Through Larry Manetti a message was delivered to producer/star Tom Selleck for Tom to give Frank a call. When Tom called, Frank told him that he wanted to appear on Magnum, but that Tom should not worry, because he did not want to be paid, he just wanted his expenses paid. Tom agreed, and asked Frank what kind of story line he wanted for his character. Frank said that he did not care, as long as his character was a tough guy, and that there be a fight scene where Frank knocks someone out. Tom agreed to Frank's terms and concept for the character Frank would play, and Frank did appear on Magnum in 1986, in what would be Frank's last, full acting, non-cameo role. Frank's "expenses" turned out to be a problem for the producers of Magnum and CBS (the network which aired Magnum during its original broadcast run), because Frank's expenses included the costs for his personal jet and his full entourage. The final expenses tally? $300,000 (in 1986 dollars!) This story has been related by Tom Selleck on several talk shows through the years, including on the October 4, 2013 airing of Late Show with David Letterman (1993).
146In 1966 he was given a song to record, and after reading it over once, he despised it. The song was "Strangers in the Night", which turned out to be one of his biggest hits. Even after its success, he still hated the song and took every opportunity to deride it.

It was later re-recorded, by Frank, in 1959 as the B-side to "French Foreign Legion". In 1960, Frankie Ford's rendition of the song charted at #75 US. Interestingly, that version fared much better than all, in Brooklyn, reaching NYC's Top 10. In 1966. Chris Montez's version peaked at #36 US.
150Was friends with fellow singer Rosemary Clooney. Two members of her family went on to appear in remakes of Sinatra films.

151Became a friend of Laurence Harvey, with whom he co-starred in The Manchurian Candidate (1962).

He stepped forward in the early 1940s, when big names were needed to rouse America into saving Europe's remaining Jews, and he sang at an "Action for Palestine" rally (1947). He sat on the board of trustees of the Simon Wiesenthal Center; and he donated over $1 million to Jerusalem 's Hebrew University, which honored him by dedicating the Frank Sinatra International Student Center.

Koch) during production of the World War II film None But the Brave (1965) in Kaui, Hawaii. They were swimming at a beach when they were swept out to sea by the outgoing tide and nearly drowned in high, billowing waves. Dexter swam out and rescued them together, but they were not able to reach shore for nearly 45 minutes. In the waves, Sinatra reportedly became separated and murmured, "It's all over . . . please take care of my kids . . . I'm going to die . . . " Both Sinatra and Koch then fell unconscious for several minutes before two surfers arrived to help Dexter take them to shore. Dexter was later awarded a Red Cross medal for his bravery.

Overhead, a skywriting plane created a giant heart in the sky. Ironically, Sinatra had attended Gary Cooper's funeral at the same church, almost 37 years to the day before his own.
192He was instrumental in reuniting Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin after their decades of estrangement. During an appearance on Lewis' annual telethon for Muscular Dystrophy, Sinatra said that he had a friend who wanted to say hello; then, he escorted Martin onto the stage to a flabbergasted Lewis.

198Lee J. Cobb credited Sinatra with saving his life after his career was nearly ruined by his defiance of the House Un-American Activities Committee investigating Communist "subversion" in the film industry. Cobb had defied HUAC for two years, after being named as a supposed Communist by Larry Parks in 1951. During those two years, Cobb's once flourishing career floundered and his wife had to be institutionalized after having a mental breakdown. Finally he agreed to testify as a "friendly" witness, appearing before HUAC in 1953. At the conclusion of his testimony, he praised the committee. Soon after his appearance there he had a massive heart attack. Sinatra--who barely knew Cobb--got him a part in his film The Miracle of the Bells (1948) when no other studio would hire Cobb. In addition, knowing that Cobb was broke, Sinatra paid his hospital bills, then had Cobb stay with him before renting him a luxurious apartment. Cobb believes that Sinatra identified with him as a troubled artist down on his luck, as Sinatra's own career had been in a severe tailspin before he resurrected himself by winning an Oscar for From Here to Eternity (1953). Cobb later said that if it wasn't for Sinatra, he didn't think he would have come through that period alive. Sinatra told Cobb he thought that Cobb was "robbed" when he failed to win the Oscar for his performance as Johnny Friendly in On the Waterfront (1954) (ironically, Sinatra originally had been scheduled to star in the picture, which was filmed in his hometown of Hoboken, NJ, but producer Sam Spiegel gave the role to Marlon Brando when he realized he could raise $1 million in financing for the picture by using Brando versus $500,000 if Sinatra was the star).
199Was considered for the role of Nicky Arnstein in Funny Girl (1968). This was vetoed by Barbra Streisand, as she didn't like him. The role was eventually played by Omar Sharif.
200Godfather of Lorna Luft.
201Sinatra saw Steve McQueen in his western TV series Wanted: Dead or Alive (1958) and requested him to take Sammy Davis Jr.'s role in Never So Few (1959). Davis had said in an interview he thought he was bigger than Sinatra in the entertainment world at that time. Since Davis' role in the film was originally written as a sidekick, it had to be re-written somewhat for McQueen. During filming they got along so well that Sinatra wanted McQueen to appear in Ocean's 11 (1960) as the cowboy Louis Jackson. McQueen was all for it but was convinced otherwise by critic Hedda Hopper, who told him it would not be a wise career move to be known as a Sinatra flunky. McQueen passed on the film, and although there were no hard feelings his brief friendship with Sinatra came to an end.
202Was in line to star in Dirty Harry (1971) as was noted in several trade papers at the time. Irvin Kershner was slated to direct, but Sinatra had to back out of the project because of some trouble with a broken bone in his hand, although it has been suggested that he wanted to act in something lighter after the recent death of his father.
203In 1963 his son Frank Sinatra Jr. was kidnapped. The kidnappers told Frank Sr. to call them from pay phones. During one call he ran out of coins, and briefly feared that it had cost him his son (the kidnappers gave him another chance). He paid the $250,000 ransom, Frank Jr. was returned, and the kidnappers were eventually caught. However, as a result of the payphone scare, Sinatra swore never to be caught without dimes again, and carried a roll of dimes with him constantly until his death.
204Was such a big fan of Chicago's song, "Colour My World" that he offered to write a second stanza to it.
205Called "Something", written by George Harrison and performed by The Beatles, one of his favorite songs.
206Was offered the role of "Don Altobello" in The Godfather: Part III (1990). Even though he had been a vocal critic of the first "Godfather" film, which featured a character based on him, he was intrigued by the offer, reportedly because the first two "Godfather" films had been so successful. Ultimately he declined the offer and the part was played by Eli Wallach, with whom Sinatra had competed for the role of Maggio in From Here to Eternity (1953).
207Owned an extensive collection of electric toy trains. He had coveted electric trains as a boy and set up a track that wove through the path of his career. The train started at a replica of the Hoboken train station.
208His heritage was entirely Italian.
209Was broke by 1951. Ava Gardner had to pay for his plane ticket so he could accompany her to Africa, where she shot Mogambo (1953).
210Though he had many affairs during his marriage to his first wife Nancy Barbato, it was his relationship with Ava Gardner that finally led to their divorce.
211While on a tour in 1974 which included Australia, Sinatra became enraged by his treatment by members of the Australian press. After a brief scuffle at the airport, he appeared on stage and delivered a hateful tirade against the press, calling them "bums and parasites," and calling the female reporters "buck-and-a-half hookers." In retaliation, the aviation union refused to refuel or otherwise maintain his private jet until he apologized. He never did. He was spirited away in the night after intervention by a high-level union leader.
212He and the other members of the Rat Pack were banned from Marilyn Monroe's funeral by Joe DiMaggio
213He was classified 4F--rejected for military service--during World War II because of a damaged eardrum. When he was born, a complicated delivery required the use of forceps, which punctured his eardrum.
214Turned down the role of Paul Kersey in Death Wish (1974). It was eventually given to Charles Bronson, and was the role that made him an international superstar.
215He was known for his mercurial personality, as all those who were close to him knew, he could be as sweet as a person could be one minute and equally as nasty and violent in the next moment. Some theorized that he was bipolar.
216He was voted the 59th Greatest Movie Star of all time by Entertainment Weekly.
217Grandfather of singer A.J. Lambert.
218When Bela Lugosi died virtually penniless, Sinatra quietly paid for his funeral.
219Was the first choice to play the title role in Dirty Harry (1971), but broke his finger before shooting started and had to bow out of the production.
220Godfather to Quinn Gonzalez
221Turned down the lead role in The Pajama Game (1957), which would have paired him up with Janis Paige, who played the role on Broadway. As a result, Paige lost out on playing the part to Doris Day, who was considered a bigger box- office draw.
222Played the Stage Manager in a musical version of "Our Town" on a TV special in 1955, with Paul Newman and Eva Marie Saint playing George and Emily. In that production, he introduced what would become another of his well-known signature songs: "Love and Marriage."
223In On the Town (1949), he co-sang "New York, New York". Years later he used the song "Theme From New York, New York" (first performed by friend Liza Minnelli, and commonly referred to as simply "New York, New York") as a showstopper in his live performances. In his "Concert For The Americas"(1982) he combined the two songs, using the first verse of the earlier song.
224Divorced his third wife Mia Farrow after she refused to quit filming the classic thriller Rosemary's Baby (1968) in order to co-star with him in Rat Pack crime drama The Detective (1968). He had the divorce papers delivered to her on set.
225Writer of several songs including "This Love of Mine" and "I'm a Fool to Want You.".
226On 14 May 1998, his last day of life, his family drove him to the hospital, frantically running stop signs and red lights. However, traffic was unusually light at that time, since many Americans were at home watching the final episode of the TV show Seinfeld (1989).
227Was best friends with Dean Martin. Of all the members of the Rat Pack, he considered Dean his closest confidant and best friend.
228His death is referred to in the Damon Gough song "You Were Right".
229Mentioned in the Marillion song "Sugar Mice" (from their 1987 album "Clutching at Straws").
230Second cousin of composer/arranger/conductor Raymond Sinatra. Ray Sinatra's father was a cousin of his father.
231Was originally signed on to play Billy Bigelow in Carousel (1956), but he walked off the set on the first day of filming after he found out that they were going to shoot each scene twice, using two different lens sizes, and was quoted as saying "I was paid to make one movie, not two".
232Inducted into the Big Band and Jazz Hall of Fame in 1980.
233Served as a mentor to performer Harry Connick Jr., whom he referred to as "The Kid".
234Named Entertainer of the Century in 2000.
235While filming a funeral scene in Robin and the 7 Hoods (1964), he learned that his close friend and benefactor, President John F. Kennedy, had been killed in Dallas earlier that day.
236In 1960, when he was in the process of forming his own label, Reprise Records, he pointed out the Capitol Tower to a friend, saying, "See that? I helped build that. Now, it's time to build one of my own." A few years later, referring to his label's success, he stated, "We may not be a Cadillac yet, but we ain't no Bug [Volkswagen], neither."
237His album "Frank Sinatra Conducts Tone Poems of Color" (Capitol: 1955) not only was rare in the sense that he conducted an orchestra as opposed to singing, but was also the first album to be recorded at the Capitol [Records] Tower, today a prominent landmark at Hollywood and Vine in Los Angeles.
238While filming a kidnapping scene for the film Robin and the 7 Hoods (1964), he learned that his son, singer Frank Sinatra Jr., had been kidnapped from his hotel room in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. For obvious reasons, the scene was never used in the completed film.
239Received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the 1971 Academy Awards for his many contributions to charity over the years. Bob Hope, who hosted the Oscars that year, remarked, "It's interesting how Sinatra announced his retirement, and they gave him a humanitarian award". Sinatra himself hosted or co-hosted the Academy Awards four different times, in 1963, 1969, 1975 and 1985.
240Had numerous #1 albums, and seven #1 singles (or more, depending on whether you include the songs he sang fronting a big-band): "Five Minutes More", "Leanin' the Blues", "Mam'selle", "Oh! What It Seemed To Be" "Strangers in the Night", "All Or Nothing At All" with the Harry James Band, and "Somethin' Stupid", shared with his daughter Nancy Sinatra. He also has four #1 hits singing as the front singer of the Tommy Dorsey Band, although he was not directly credited as the artist. These include "I'll Never Smile Again", "Dolores", "There Are Such Things", "In The Blue Of Evening".
241An accomplished amateur painter, he not only recorded the Grammy-winning album "Frank Sinatra Sings for Only the Lonely" (Capitol: 1958), but designed the cover art, as well.
242Became estranged from Dean Martin during the final years of their lives, since Zmartin quit "The Together Again Tour".
243A forcep delivery at his birth left permanent scars on his cheek and ruptured an eardrum. The latter is the reason most often given for his being exempted from service during World War II.
244Named Humanitarian of the Year by the Variety Clubs of America in 1983.
245Was, at one time, part owner of the Sands hotel/casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, and the Cal-Neva Lodge in Lake Tahoe. As the name implies, the latter was bisected by the California-Nevada borderline.
246Permanently injured one of his fingers while shooting a fight scene with Henry Silva in The Manchurian Candidate (1962). In the scene, Sinatra threw a karate chop and his hand went through a solid wooden table, breaking several bones in his little finger. The footage was left in the final cut.
247Godfather of singer Nikka Costa.
248At his funeral, friends and family members placed items in his coffin that had personal references. These are reported to include ten dimes, several Tootsie Roll candies, a pack of Black Jack chewing gum, a roll of wild cherry Life Savers candy, a ring engraved with the word "Dream", a mini bottle of Jack Daniels whiskey, a pack of Camel cigarettes and a Zippo cigarette lighter.
249The epitaph on his headstone reads "The best is yet to come."
250A provision in his will is that if anyone contests it, they are automatically disinherited.

256Interred at Desert Memorial Park, Cathedral City, California, USA. Specific Interment Location: B-8, #151.

259Thought by many to be the finest American popular singer of our time.
260Some three decades late, the Hungarian-born actress Eva Bartok claimed that her daughter, Deana, born in 1957 during Bartok's marriage to the actor Curd Jürgens, was actually fathered by Sinatra, during a brief affair that he and Bartok had had following his breakup in 1956 with the sultry Ava Gardner. Sinatra never acknowledged paternity.

#Quote
1I would like to be remembered as a man who had a wonderful time living life, a man who had good friends, fine family - and I don't think I could ask for anything more than that, actually.
2May you all live to be 100 years old, and may the last voice you hear be mine!
3(On The Manchurian Candidate (1962)) I've never had to speak on screen before...long, wild speeches.
4[to Hubert H. Humphrey, who had greeted him by tugging at his sleeve] Hands off the threads, creep.
5Rock 'n roll smells phony and false. It is sung, played and written for the most part by cretinous goons and by means of its almost imbecilic reiteration and sly, lewd, in plain fact, dirty lyrics .. manages to be the martial music of every side-burned delinquent on the face of the earth.
6[on Rat Pack buddy Sammy Davis Jr.] He goes to the refrigerator for a snack, opens the door, and when that light hits him, he does 45 minutes of his act!
7[1978, in Caesars Palace in Las Vegas] I hate this song ['My Way']--you sing it for eight years, you would hate it too!
8That guy Heston has to watch it. If he's not careful, he'll get actors a good name. - On Charlton Heston
9A well balanced girl is the one who has an empty head and a full sweater.
10[on friend Peggy Lee] Her wonderful talent should be studied by all vocalists; her regal presence is pure elegance and charm.
11[on the resignation of US President Richard Nixon, Aug. 9, 1974] Any man can make a mistake.
12Don't tell me. Suggest. But don't tell me.
13I'm a performer. I'm better in the first take.
14I detest bad manners. If people are polite, I am. They shouldn't try to get away with not being polite to me.
15[1965] For my money, Tony Bennett is the best singer in the business. He excites me when I watch him. He moves me. He's the singer who gets across what the composer has in mind, and probably a little more.
16In Hoboken, when I was a kid, I lived in a plenty tough neighborhood. When somebody called me a "dirty little pig," there was only one thing to do: break his head. When I got older, I realized you shouldn't do it [get even] that way. I realized you've got to do it through education . . . maybe with a few exceptions.
17[on Don Rickles] I like him. But that's because I have no taste.
18For over half a century, Mr. Wayne [John Wayne] has served honorably as America's symbol to the world of the highest morals and prudent standards of our society.
19No man's lifetime of work has better expressed the land of the free and the home of the brave. No man's lifetime of work has given proof to the world that our flag is still there. John Wayne is in truth a star-spangled man whom so proudly we hail.
20[on Marlon Brando] He is the most overrated actor in the world.
21Recording with Billy May is like having a bucket of cold water thrown into your face. Nelson Riddle will come to a session with all the arrangements carefully and neatly worked out beforehand. With Billy you sometimes don't get copies of the next number until you've finished the one before. Billy and Nelson both work best under pressure. Billy May is always driving while Nelson has more depth, and with Gordon Jenkins, it's just plain beautiful and simple.
22There are moments when it's too quiet. Particularly late at night or early in the mornings. That's when you know there's something lacking in your life. You just know.
23[on Elvis Presley's death in 1977] There have been many accolades uttered about his talent and performances through the years, all of which I agree to wholeheartedly, I shall miss him dearly as a friend.
24You better get busy living, because dying's a pain in the ass.
25[on Ava Gardner] I love her, and God damn me for it.
26[on Elvis Presley in 1957] Sung, played and written for the most part by cretinous goons; and by means of its almost imbecilic reiterations and sly, lewd - in plain fact, dirty - lyrics it manages to be the martial music of every sideburned delinquent on the face of the Earth. This rancid-smelling aphrodisiac I deplore. His kind of music is deplorable, a rancid smelling aphrodisiac . . . it fosters almost totally negative and destructive reactions in young people.
27[after the deaths of Sammy Davis Jr., Ava Gardner, Jilly Rizzo and Dean Martin] I'm next. I ain't scared, either. Everybody I ever knew is already over there.
28Nothing anybody's said or written about me ever bothers me, except when it does.
29[when Dean Martin walked out on The Together Again Tour] You can't put a gun to his head. He just didn't want to do it.
30A fella came up to me the other day with a nice story. He was in a bar somewhere and it was the quiet time of the night. Everybody's staring down at the sauce and one of my saloon songs comes on the jukebox, "One for My Baby", or something like that. After a while, a drunk at the end of the bar looks up and says, jerking his thumb toward the jukebox, "I wonder who he listens to?"
31[Talking about Burt Reynolds] He is the one the ladies like to dance with and their husbands like to drink with. He is the larger-than-life actor of our times. He is gifted, talented, naughty and nice.
32[his last words] I'm losing it.
33A friend is never an imposition.
34I'm for anything that gets you through the night, be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniels. But to me religion is a deeply personal thing in which man and God go it alone together, without the witch doctor in the middle.
35I'm trying to figure out, Chairman of what Board? People come up to me and seriously say: "Well, what are you Chairman of?" And I can't answer them.
