Frank Sinatra Autograph
"Frank" Sinatra was born on 12th December 1915, the only
child of Italian immigrants. Poorly educated, he was
expelled from high school after just 47 days for
unacceptable behaviour, Frank Sinatra went on to become
a household name both as a singer and actor. Sinatra also
gained attention for his alleged links to organised
crime, and was under surveillance by the FBI for almost
five decades. Despite this he was awarded the
Presidential Medal of Freedom by Ronald Reagan in 1985
and the Congressional Medal in 1997.
his success, Sinatra noted "People often remark that I'm pretty lucky. Luck
is only important in so far as getting the chance to sell yourself at the
right moment. After that, you've got to have talent and know how to use it."
