Listen to Looch - 'Sinatra: All Or Nothing At All' (Luke Taylor; Joseph Gallup | MPR)

This week, Mary Lucia talks about a documentary that originally aired on HBO a couple years ago but is now on Netflix: Sinatra: All Or Nothing At All. The film is directed by Alex Gibney.

"It is the most comprehensive — long — documentary covering Sinatra's entire life, career, everything," Mary says.

The film begins with Sinatra's upbringing in Hoboken, N.J., then traces his career from crooner in New York, to the bobby soxer craze of the 1940s, all the way to Sinatra's emergence as a global star of stage and screen who even influenced political opinion and outcomes. "It's so extensive and such a comprehensive documentary for any fan," Mary says.
