Sinatra is a visual tribute to Frank Sinatra's film career. His musical legacy is renowned and made him a household name, but he has received less acclaim for his extraordinary contribution to motion pictures.

Frank Sinatra "the actor" deserves to be rediscovered and reassessed. In an acting career that spanned four decades, from the classic 40s to the permissive 70s and beyond, he combined the traditional "star quality" of Humphrey Bogart and James Cagney with the avant-garde of the new generation's Marlon Brando, Montgomery Clift and Steve McQueen. His cool, edgy film persona was often laced with hints of menace, danger and sex appeal, and he carved an unparalleled legacy in cutting edge thrillers like The Manchurian Candidate, drug addiction watershed films like The Man With the Golden Arm, and his Oscar-winning performance in From Here to Eternity. Today, his influence on young Hollywood is unrivalled. Ultimately, had Frank Sinatra never sung one note of music on radio, stage or screen, he would still stand alone as one of history's most popular, talented and diverse actors.
