Synopsis

Few entertainers were capable of carrying a prime-time television event the way that Francis Albert Sinatra was. Lucky for us, he did it time and time again. Featured here are two classics from the late ’60s, along with a guest-filled special from 1977.

Francis Albert Sinatra Does His Thing

With Special Guests Diahann Carroll And The 5th Dimension

Having established himself in American households with his previous A Man And His Music specials, Frank made a bold move in 1968, in the middle of the civil rights era, with a special celebration of black music and its impact on American popular culture. Highlights include a medley of spirituals sung with Diahann Carroll and a swingin’ pop interlude with then-chart-toppers The 5th Dimension.

Aired November 25, 1968. 15 performances, 52 minutes.

Sinatra

Featuring Don Costa & His Orchestra

In this final installment in what had become an annual tradition of televised specials, Sinatra casts a backward glance at some of the highlights of a storied career. He also provides a glimpse into his musical future with an early rendition of “My Way,” soon to become his personal anthem.

Aired November 5, 1969. 15 performances, 52 minutes.

Sinatra And Friends

Spanning multiple genres and featuring some of the leading names in pop and country, this rarely seen 1977 special offers wall-to-wall performances. Guests include Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Natalie Cole, Loretta Lynn and John Denver, who all return one-by-one for a final embrace with Frank as he sings the Paul Anka–penned “Everybody Ought To Be In Love.”

Aired April 21, 1977. 17 performances, 50 minutes.
