Sinatra. At the very mention of his name (and depending on when you first became aware of the icon), all sorts of images come to mind. All of those images – plus an infinite amount more – are presented in “Sinatra: All Or Nothing At All.
Sinatra: All Or Nothing At All is the definitive account of the life, music and career of Frank Sinatra, the greatest entertainer of the 20th century. Available on 2DVD, 2Blu-ray, Deluxe Edition and digital formats, Sinatra: All Or Nothing At All features clips from many Sinatra classics including: “My Way,” “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “Fly Me To The Moon,” “All Or Nothing At All,” “The Lady Is A Tramp,” “Nancy (With The Laughing Face),” “That’s Life,” “Luck Be A Lady Tonight,” “New York, New York,” “(Love Is) The Tender Trap,” “Love And Marriage,” “Night And Day,” “Stardust,” “Young At Heart,” “Angel Eyes” and many more!
Told in his own words through extensive archive interviews, along with commentary from those closest to him, the film 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 director Alex Gibney interprets as the singer’s personal guide through his own life. 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, the actor and the man.
Focusing on Sinatra’s first 60 years – beginning with his birth in Hoboken, New Jersey and meteoric rise in his 20s – 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.
The Deluxe Edition Box set contains the All Or Nothing At All documentary on 2DVDS, the full Retirement Concert from 1971 on 1 DVD and on 1 CD, the 1965 Walter Cronkite CBS TV interview on 1 DVD, 2 booklets, one of which is a reproduction of the 1971 Life magazine article on the Retirement Concert and 6 art cards in an envelope.
All Or Nothing At All was directed and produced by Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney. Executive producers are five-time Oscar nominated producer Frank Marshall, Charles Pignone and Sharon Hall, and Alcon Television Group’s Co-Founders and Co-CEO’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson.
With December 12, 2015 representing the 100th anniversary of Frank Sinatra’s birth, what better time to look back on an unsurpassed performer and what a great gift for that music lover on your Christmas shopping list.
