Rate this:
Sinatra : all or nothing at all is an up-close and personal examination of the life, music and career of the legendary entertainer. Told in his own words from hours of archived interviews, along with commentary from those closest to him, the documentary weaves the music and images from Sinatra's life together with rarely seen footage of Sinatra's famous 1971 "Retirement Concert" in Los Angeles. The film's narrative is shaped by Sinatra's song choices for that concert, which Alex Gibney interprets as the singer's personal guide through his own life. Focusing on Sinatra's first 60 uears and drawing on comments from friends and family, as well as never-before-seen footage from home movies and concert performances, this unprecedented tribute to the beloved showman follows Sinatra's growth from roadhouse performer to global singing sensation. With the participation of the Frank Sinatra Estate, family members and archivists, Sinatra: all or nothing at all is an intimate portrait of the singer, actor, father, husband and philanthropist.
Sinatra says good-by and amen : a farewell to 30 very good years is a reprint of an article from Life magazine's June 25, 1971 issue.

I'm a serious Sinatra fan & I've never seen most of the content of these DVDs. Really great. The "retirement concert" is a time capsule from '71. I thought I had seen the Walter Cronkite interview. I was wrong! The TV aired interview which included Rat Pack Benefit Performance with Johnny Carson & a prison benefit performance with the great Count Basie Band were shown in their entirety. The previous versions were all edited by about 40% for commercials. The career retrospective was also more complete than any that I've ever seen (& I've seen everything). Thanks to Frank Jr., Nancy Jr., & Tina for the irreplaceable recollections of their father. This is a MUST for FS fans, & even if he's not your favorite, you'll enjoy just how well this is put together.
