Editorial Reviews

Frank Sinatra: The Golden Years (DVD) (Rpkg)

FRANK SINATRA: THE GOLDEN YEARS COLLECTION THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM Gripping, harrowing, taboo-shattering. The legend shines as a drummer coping with drug abuse. "Sinatra never gave a better performance as an actor" (The New Yorker 8/9/93). With Kim Novak and Eleanor Parker. MARRIAGE ON THE ROCKS A screwball marriage-go-round. Sinatra, Deborah Kerr and Dean Martin go for a madcap spin in this whoop-for-joy romp about I do, I don't, and I did what?! NONE BUT THE BRAVE A tale of combat, survival…and of respect between enemies. U.S. Marine Sinatra crash-lands onto a Pacific atoll held by Japanese troops. Sinatra's powerful directorial debut. SOME CAME RUNNNG Small-town hypocrisy comes into focus in this acclaimed exposé of a mid- American town. From director Vincente Minnelli and the author of From Here to Eternity. Sinatra, Dean Martin and Shirley MacLaine. THE TENDER TRAP Will a talent agent (Sinatra) dedicated to life, liberty and the happiness of pursuit be snared by love? Maybe yes when Manhattan cutie Debbie Reynolds sets her sights on him.

"Golden Era" is kind of a misnomer for this DVD set, as only 3 of the films are truly from Frank Sinatra's golden era: the mid to late 1950's.
However, the 3 films here from that era, "Tender Trap" (1955), "Man With the Golden Arm" (1955), and "Some Came Running" (1958) are all SUPERB!

"The Tender Trap" (Color; 1955) is a delightful comedy, with a screenplay (by Julius J. Epstein) not unlike Neil Simon's future plays, and features great chemistry between Sinatra and co-star Debbie Reynolds (4 1/2 out of 5 stars).

"The Man With the Golden Arm" (In film noir-ish B&W; 1955) is well-known as, perhaps, Sinatra's greatest performance as an actor. He was nominated for an Oscar, but lost to Ernest Borgnine in the "safer" film, "Marty". Directed by Otto Preminger, it is an excellent film about heroin addiction, and was extremely realistic by 1955 standards. It was the FIRST film ever to tackle this subject seriously and it does not demonize the drug user as might be expected for a film that is over 50 years old (5 out of 5 stars).

"Some Came Running" (Color; 1958) Directed by Vincente Minnelli and one of Martin Scorcese's favorite films, this film HAS to be seen in WIDESCREEN to be fully appreciated! Also starring Shirley MacLaine (in an Oscar-nominated early role) and Dean Martin, this drama is, in essence, Part 2 of "From Here to Eternity", with Sinatra now in the Clift role as an author/soldier returning to his small hometown, only to find himself disillusioned by its hypocracies and his label as a troublemaker and misfit (James Joyce wrote both novels, "From Here to Eternity" and its sequel, "Some Came Running"). Sinatra, MacLaine, and Martin are all excellent in this complex, lengthy (but always entertaining) film (5 out of 5 stars).

All are anamorphic. All are in their original CinemaScope ratio of 2.35:1, EXCEPT for The Man With the Golden Arm, which is matted at 1.85:1.

Sinatra proves that he doesn't need to sing. I was a bit hesitant to watch some of these movies but they turned out more than I expected. It is my favorite Sinatra collection. It has drama and then some comedy.

I Ordered this DVD, It Came in on time. but it's not so good enough to watch! to me the Picture Quality is # one. All shows were cloudy - non clear, so not interesting enough to watch. I would Not Recommend this.

This DVD was great value and includes some of 'old blue eyes' most popular movies. The quality of all was very good and I was particulary impressed by SOME CAME RUNNING which I had not seen before. Shirley McLaine also gives an amazing performance alongside Frank. A good collection of Frank Sinatra films from MGM (now Warner Bros)

This is really a great set of Sinatra movies. The Man with the Golden Arm on of his most acclaimed performances. Marriage on the rocks a great comedy with Dean Martin. The Tender Trap is another great and underrated film. If you love Sinatra in the movies you will enjoy this fun collection.

I'm a big Sinatra buff and these are some of his best films except for a bit of fluff, namely 'Marriage on the Rocks.' My favorites are 'The Man With the Golden Arm,' 'Some Came Running' and 'The Tender Trap.' A really 'must have' collection.
