THE FRANK SINATRA FILM COLLECTION

There's very little we can say about the indomitable Ol' Blue Eyes that hasn't already been said, but suffice it to say, Frank Sinatra is one of the most successful entertainers of all time, effortlessly transitioning back and forth between his music and acting careers.

On April 3rd, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment releases the rather impressive "The Frank Sinatra Film Collection" on DVD.

Films include Stanley Kramer's "The Pride and the Passion" co-starring Cary Grant and Sophia Loren, "Kings Go Forth" with Tony Curtis and Natalie Wood, Frank Capra's "A Hole in the Head," "Can-Can," featuring Shirley MacLaine, John Frankenheimer's classic "The Manchurian Candidate," "Von Ryan’s Express," "Cast a Giant Shadow" starring Kirk Douglas, Yul Brynner and John Wayne among others, "Tony Rome" (featuring a score by Lee Hazlewood), its sequel, "Lady in Cement" co-starring Raquel Welch, and "The Detective."

The 10-title collection spans 11 years of Frank Sinatra’s amazing career, including some of his most memorable and critically-acclaimed performances (here's some awards stats for you):

  • A Hole in the Head – Academy Award® winner Best Music/Song
  • Can-Can – Academy Award® nominee Best Costume Design, Best Music
  • The Manchurian Candidate – Academy Award® nominee Best Actress, Best Film Editing
  • Von Ryan’s Express – Academy Award® nominee Best Effects, Sound Effects

We've got one copy of this excellent collection for the Sinatra-completeist out there. To win, just email us the answer to this (semi-difficult) question (there is only one copy for give-away after all) : "Tony Rome," "The Detective" and Lady In Cement" (all directed by Gordon Douglas) were late-sixties neo-noirs that updated the hard-boiled detective mien of the 1940s. Sinatra was originally considered for what late-60s neo-noir that eventually went to Paul Newman? Bonne chance.

Contest open to U.S. residents only.

Update: Contest closed. Winner will be contacted via email.
