As some of you may recall, I spent several hours last year being interviewed for a two-part TV documentary about Frank Sinatra. I was much impressed at the time by the seriousness and industry of the producers, who had not only done their homework but had very clearly profited from it. It’s easy to be superficial about Sinatra, but they assured me that their interest was not in retailing gossip but in exploring his artistry, and I took them at their word.
The fruits of their labors are about to be harvested. Sinatra: All or Nothing at All will air on HBO on April 5 and 6. A minute-long trailer has just been posted on YouTube, and it seems that I figure prominently in it.
