When HBO originally announced its new entertainment documentary, Sinatra: All or Nothing At All, was coming to our television screens this year, no air date had been decided. Now, I’m happy to tell you the two-night, four-hour presentation will premiere Sunday, April 5 from 8-10:00 pm ET/PT and Monday, April 6 from 8-10:00 pm ET/PT. Directed by Alex Gibney (HBO’s Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown), the presentation will mark the 100th year since the iconic entertainer’s birth.

Growing up listening to Frank Sinatra not only was a treat for me, it was an honor. As a matter of fact, his “Strangers in the Night” was the song I chose for the first dance at my wedding back in the day. Many of his songs, particularly “My Way,” “Come Fly With Me,” “The Impossible Dream,” as well as “That’s Life,” always spoke to me, and to this day, hold a special meaning in my heart. You can be sure I will be tuning in to this very special documentary.

Sinatra: All or Nothing At All examines Sinatra’s life, music, and career as told in his own words, as well as commentary from those closest to him. In addition, there will be rarely seen footage of Sinatra’s famous 1971 “Retirement Concert” in Los Angeles. The film’s narrative is shaped by Sinatra’s song choices for that concert, which Gibney interprets as the singer’s personal guide through his own life.

Focusing on Sinatra’s first 60 years – beginning with his birth in Hoboken, New Jersey and meteoric rise in his 20s – and drawing on comments from friends and family, as well as never-before-seen footage from home movies and concert performances, this unprecedented tribute to the beloved showman follows Sinatra’s growth from roadhouse performer to global singing sensation.  With the participation of the Frank Sinatra Estate, family members and archivists, Sinatra: All or Nothing At All is an intimate portrait of the singer, actor, father, husband and philanthropist.
