S01:E03 - Hollywood the Second Time Around
48 min
Frank Sinatra's professional and personal life was in turmoil during the new age of television, but his juicy role of Maggio in From Here to Eternity jumpstarted his career back to life. He later played a psychopathic war veteran in the film Suddenly and proved that his raw emotion in From Here to Eternity was no fluke. Sinatra used his fame to draw attention to important matters, and he played many benefits raising millions for charities and medical research. The Sinatra sound changed in the 1950s as the era of the big band faded. His mastery of phrasing and tonality was perfected and his album In The Wee Small Hours became a best seller. Sinatra acted in MGM films all the way up to 1974 and even took a stab at producing films himself.
