      Audience Member Gripping romantic drama with some lovely songs, has its fair share of suspense. Unfortunately it is hard to find though. Hopefully it will be released to DVD or Blu-ray in the near future. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member It's not perfect. The story isn't the most original, and the ending was begging for a cleaner exposition. But there are very few actors who are simply captivating with every word they say (or sing), and Frank Sinatra is one of them, and Meet Danny Wilson is Sinatra at his best. He is MAGIC. And every other cast member manages to hold their own against his majesty, the Chairman, and the chemistry between the three leads is incredible. The musical numbers are stupendous, everything about this movie is stupendous. Sinatra fans will be grinning from ear to ear every second of the movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member The Chairman of the Board plays cocky, young nightclub singer Danny Wilson in this great monochrome filmed picture. Sinatra's voice is at it's absolute peak (the story was filmed just before his Capitol contract started) and whenever Sinatra sings, the story, the characters and the film itself no longer seem to be important. Raymond Burr makes a great heavy and Shelly Winters also does well. Sinatra classics featured here include That Old Black Magic, When Youre Smiling and All Of Me. The film is also peppered with references to Hollywood contemporaries: Bing Crosby, Jeff Chandler, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, and a brief one-shot, one-line cameo from Tony Curtis. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews
