The Concert Sinatra ~ Frank Sinatra

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great CD!, May 3 2004
This is among Sinatra's best work, one of his finest recordings. His voice is in excellent shape- very rich and strong. This version of "Ol Man River" is THE version to hear. Nelson Riddle's arrangements are fabulous, complimenting Sinatra's voice perfectly. The album was originally released in late May, 1963. Get this CD, if you don't have it already. You'll really enjoy it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could Have Been Better..., April 28 2004
I like Richard Widmark, and absolutely love his movies. I have yet to see a "bad" one, or one I did not like. However, the part in this movie was far too lightweight for him. He's much too good of an actor to be in such of a role. He's best in tough-guy parts. He always fits those like a glove. This film, which is about a couple's desire to have children, doesn't do him justice. He was miscast in this part. Doris Day is sweet and lovely, as usual, while Gig Young is totally annoying. His part could have been deleted completely. The story itself is pretty good, but as I said before, it could have been better.

My Mother grew up in the same town and neighborhood as the author, an area I am also familiar with myself. I can tell you firsthand there are numerous fabrications throughout this book. For example, she claims no one had a piano in the neighborhood, except for herself and another one of the girls. However, there was a piano at my Mom's house, as well as some of the others. Neither was she the first black female to attend Texas A&M, in College Station, TX. My Mother, along with several others, attended before she did. As a matter of fact, my Mom attended there for the first time in the summer of 1966- the author was still in high school at the time. While reading it, we spotted numerous… Read more
