Sinatra: 100 Years of Greatness

 

100 Years of Greatness

December 12th, 2015 marks a very special day. Not only is it the 26th birthday of your favorite classic movie blogger (yes, that would be me), but it also marks the 100th birthday of some guy named Francis Albert “Frank” Sinatra. Yup, that’s right today is Ol’ Blue Eyes 100th birthday! To be honest, there’s not much I can say about the man who created the concept of the modern pop star that hasn’t already been said. So, instead, I say we just take a look at the man and see how he evolved through the years.
