Frank Sinatra: A Rare Documentary from 1965

It’s kind of impossible to not like The Chairman of the Board. If they ever build a Mt. Rushmore for “cool” he would be choice numero uno.

In 1965, CBS News spent six months with Sinatra, exploring what it is exactly that made him so cool — getting unprecedented access to both his recording career and his private life. Now, thanks to YouTube, we have access to this rare footage in a three part documentary. Sinatra talks about everything from his childhood in Hoboken to his famous love affairs and even touches on what it means to be an entertainer.

It’s required viewing for any Sinatra fan, but also anyone that is interested in pop culture, history or engrossing documentaries.

Part two and three after the jump.
