Frank Sinatra

singer, actor
Born: 12/12/1915
Birthplace: Hoboken, New Jersey

Academy and Grammy Award-winning singer and actor who matured from the bobby-soxers' heartthrob to one of the most influential song stylists of his day. Similarly, Sinatra surprised critics who expected little from a band singer with creditable screen performances in From Here to Eternity (1953), The Manchurian Candidate (1962), and The Man With the Golden Arm (1955). Sinatra continued to pack auditoriums with tours that sometimes included his “Rat Pack” pals from the 1950s. His recordings include “Young at Heart” (1954) and “Strangers in the Night” (1966).

Died: 5/14/1998
