Frank Sinatra Show: Welcome Home Elvis

All of the above would normally sink the rating to one-star. Fortunately the DVD is redeemed by a few classic pop songs by Frank Sinatra, several bits by Sammy Davis Jr. (a tune from PORGY AND BESS, a comedy bit where Sammy mimics celebrities), and the legendary summit meeting of the top 1940s and 1950s idols: Frank and Elvis Presley. Neither Frank nor Elvis' performances rate among their all-time best, but both are in good form. Although Dean Martin is not around, another ratpacker Joey Bishop has some funny quips, and a teenage Nancy Sinatra is in some scenes (quite a few years prior to "Boots Were Made..." and "Something Stupid"). The good scenes outweigh the poor ones, making this probably one of the few variety shows of that era that remain entertaining to watch over four decades later. Overall, for Frank and Elvis collectors only ... there's too much better material by both artists available to put this on the must-see list unless you are big fans of one or both stars.
Boy, the year was 1960, and Frank Sinatra schedules Elvis the King of Rock-and-Roll as his guest star. Elvis can be seen just back from serving his 2 year conscription in the U.S. Army. It has been said that Elvis came back to reclaim his title as the teen-idol. The interesting part of this DVD was that the original and unedited "commercials" from the shows' sponsor "TIMEX" watches. It was great and nostalgic.
Another interesting part of this show is Sinatra's other guest stars as "Nancy Sinatra". Other highlights were "Sammy Davis, Jr.", "Joey Bishop" and "Peter Lawford", the only other missing member or guest of the infamous "Rat Pack" was "Dino".
My only complaint is the quality of the DVD. It was rather poor. Considering its' age, forty-four years ago, though, the visual was still discernable.
All-in-all, this is a must for all Elvis / Sinatra buffs. I truly enjoyed this DVD.
I really enjoyed this show alot if you are a sinatra or Ratpack or elvis fan you should buy it!
Plus an old Documentary of "The Story Of Elvis Presley". Back in 1991 my fist video that I ever own on Elvis was this documentary that you'll get as a bonus on the DVD. I believe that I bought it from Phar-more of Walmart. But anyway, I never new anything about this man until I bought this video. Now, we can now own it along with the Sinatra Show. It's not a great quality documentary but it gives me memories of how I started to be a collector of Elvis Presley. So Fan's get this DVD because it's a Classic moment with Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley.

Aside from the two Elvis appearances, this show was the height of boring. The dance routines and skits are THE WORST in television history. Read morePublished on February 26, 2014 by Michelle Gaureau
