Classic Movie Legend Tribute: Frank Sinatra

Happy Birthday to Classic Movie Legend, Frank Sinatra, born December 12, 1915. 

December 12 is a historically significant day. In 2000 the United States Supreme Court released its decision in Bush v Gore, in 1991 the Russian Federation gained independence from the U.S.S.R, in 1989 your favorite blog writer (AKA me) was born, and in 1915 Francis Albert Sinatra was sent to this earth from the music heavens.

Yes, today is Ol’ Blue Eyes birthday and the responsibility falls upon me to pay homage to this legend amongst legends. So, were to begin? Well, let’s start with the man himself: Sinatra. I mean, the name itself holds power. When you think Sinatra, you think leader of the pack, you think type A personality, you think of a man all the ladies want and probably most of the men want, as well. Let’s be honest here, to say this man was a force of nature might be giving nature too much credit. The drive, the talent, the charisma and, most of all, the sheer ambition of this man is the blue print for all aspiring entertainers. Just think about the evolution of his career, going from massive teen-heartthrob to respected musician to respected actor to comedy performer to living legend. Justin Timberlake may be getting all the credit for doing this now, but Sinatra did it first.

So, to celebrate this glorious man’s birthday, let us take a look at some of his many accomplishments.
