Harvey Brownstone conducts an in-depth interview with Tom Santopietro, Author of “Sinatra in Hollywood: The Film Career of a Screen Icon”
About Harvey's guest:
Tom Santopietro is the author of five books: “The Sound of Music Story”, “The Godfather Effect: Changing Hollywood, America, and Me”, “Sinatra in Hollywood”, “Considering Doris Day” and “The Importance of Being Barbra”. A frequent media commentator in programs ranging from the PBS documentary The Italian Americans to the Jimmy van Heusen biography Swingin' With Frank & Bing, Tom conducts monthly interviews for Barnes and Noble and lectures on classic films. Over the past thirty years he has managed more than two dozen Broadway shows.
He’s here to discuss his fascinating book entitled, “Sinatra in Hollywood: The Film Career of a Screen Icon”, which not only celebrates the screen legacy of this iconic star, but also delves into his tumultuous marriages, his political involvement, and those persistent rumours of mafia connections. Although we usually think of Sinatra as a recording and concert artist, the fact is that he made 61 feature films, and was a tremendously gifted actor.
