Celebrate Frank Sinatra’s 100th Birthday

Introduced by Charles McGrath, writer at large for The New York Times, former editor of The New York Times Book Review, and former deputy editor of The New Yorker.

(1957, George Sidney) In what may be his most archetypal ring-a-ding-ding role, nightclub lothario Frank Sinatra “could write a book” about member-of-the-chorus Kim Novak, but he’s still got his sugar mama, ex-ecdysiast (look it up) Rita Hayworth “bewitched, bothered and bewildered.” The fabulous Rodgers & Hart score also includes “My Funny Valentine” and “The Lady is a Tramp.” Pal Joey, the original novel by John O’Hara, is now out in a new 75th anniversary edition from Penguin Classics (available today at our concession). DCP.
