Item Description

The first and only time I saw Frank Sinatra in person, I didn't see his startling blue eyes. I saw only a smile which spread over his entire face making his eyes twinkle even in the darkness of the theater where he was performing. His voice (which would later be called "golden") sent the teenage girls around me into a frantic, with many of them screaming with delight. Contrary to stories in later years after his stardom was assured, no one fainted nor did anyone rush up to the stage. I was only a wisp of a girl hanging on to the arms of a family friend who had to drag me along if she wanted to see Mr. Sinatra. I hadn't the slightest concept as to why so many people were being so rude and drowning out the voice they claimed to adore.

I recall hearing some of the girls in the audience yelling "Frankie." That was a memory implanted into my memory then and reinforced over the years. By the time I was in my teens, Frank Sinatra's recordings were available in the individual jukeboxes at each booth of every restaurant and cafe where teenagers and adults alike gathered for family meals or something from the soda fountain. A single nickel dropped into the coin slot and a button selection would keep the singing idol performing. Sometimes everyone would pop a coin or two into the jukebox and the "Golden Voice" would entertain everyone continuously.

On May 14, 1998 at 10:35 in the evening, Francis Albert Sinatra passed away at the age of 82. But stars never die. They continue to twinkle in media heavens through the recordings of their artistry. For those of us who are soothed by his music, Frank Sinatra lives. For those of us who like to be entertained and live in a land of fantasy through his movies, Frank Sinatra lives. We remember famous personalities for reasons of our own. We loved them regardless of bad press. The man with the "Golden Voice" and the famous blue eyes sleeps in peace with others who have gone before him, but remembered for the best of himself and not the worst.
