Frank Sinatra: Ol’ Blue Eyes

Frank Sinatra was born on December 12, 1915 in Hoboken, New Jersey. His father had emigrated to the U.S. twenty years before from Sicily while his mother, a Ligurian, had emigrated about the same time. While young Sinatra would liked to have joined the military following the bombing of Pearl Harbor, he was unable to do so due to a punctured eardrum; an incident which occurred due to the use of forceps during his delivery. Instead, he opted to pursue a career in entertainment. In 1935 he had appeared on the Major Bowes Amateur Hour. When Sinatra’s group, the Hoboken Four, won the talent contest on the show they went on tour with Bowes. Sinatra subsequently went to work at The Rustic Cabin as a singing waiter, where he was soon discovered by Harry James and hired to be part of James’ new band, the Harry James Orchestra. Less than six months later he was hired by Tommy Dorsey for the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. About this same time, Sinatra began to appear in several films, including Las Vegas Nights.

In 1943, he went solo and quickly became a teen idol. From 1943 until 1952 he recorded numerous hits with Columbia Records. In 1953 he moved to Capitol, where he remained until 1960, when he co-founded Reprise Records. Sinatra’s concerts frequently attracted thousands of fans, a large majority of them screaming teenage girls. Sinatra was first married to his childhood sweetheart Nancy from 1939 to 1951. The couple had three children together. Shortly after his divorce from Nancy, he married Ava Gardner. They separated two years later and divorced in 1957. In 1966 he married Mia Farrow. This marriage was also short-lived; ending two years after the fact. His last marriage was to Barbara Blakeley Marx in 1976. Frank Sinatra died at the age of 82 of a heart attack in 1998.
