Pardon the interruption, but we need to take a brief time-out from Great Falls blogging in order to remember the greatest entertainer of the 20th century.
Today marks ten years since we lost the greatest singer – perhaps the greatest entertainer – of the 20th century: Francis Albert Sinatra. Ol’ Blue Eyes. The Voice. The Chairman of The Board. The Legend. Frankie. Sinatra.
Frank, you did indeed do it Your Way. And you helped to create the modern-day America along the way, epitomizing so many things that are good – and a few that aren’t – about America.
UPDATE: don’t forget that Turner Classic Movies (channel 40) is featuring Frank movies and concerts this month! Tonight you can catch “The Tender Trap” (one of my favorite Frank movies and one of his best songs), “High Society” (watchable, but merely a pale imitation of “The Philadelphia Story” which is a true classic), and a few others.
