Tina Sinatra

Not many people could know Frank Sinatra as well as his family, which includes daughter Tina, Frank’s youngest child, who executive-produced the excellent TV movie Sinatra in 1992.  The film, which was an honest reflection of Sinatra’s life, received a total of seven prime time Emmy nominations, two of which it won.    Tina also wrote a wonderfully interesting peek into life in the Sinatra family in her book My Father’s Daughter, co-authored with Jeff Coplon.

For a quick introduction to Tina Sinatra, there’s an interview with Tina on the web at a site called Spinner.com.  In her conversation with Spinner, Tina covers a variety of subjects, including what it was like hanging out as a teenager with Frank’s Rat Pack associates.  She has great personal insights into the lives of Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.  From her observations, you can tell she was close to both of them and definitely saw another side they didn’t show to the general public.  Tina shares her insight into the Rat Pack’s appeal and their enduring popularity going back those 50 years to the Rat Pack’s heyday spent in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, among other locations.

And Tina talks about the proposed feature film on her dad’s life to be brought to the screen by Martin Scorsese sometime in  the future.  The project is said to feature a favorite actor of Scorsese’s, Leonardo Di Caprio in the lead.  And although Tina declares her support for Scorsese and his judgment, she also offers some casting ideas of her own in her interview, which you’ll find at Spinner.com
