Oscar night smiles


Donna Reed and Frank Sinatra on Oscar night

Francis Albert Sinatra (December 12, 1915 – May 14, 1998).


Frank Sinatra was an American singer and motion-picture actor who, through a long career and a very public personal life, became one of the most sought-after performers in the entertainment industry. He is often hailed as the greatest American singer of 20th-century popular music.


He received the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance as Maggio in the war drama From Here to Eternity (1953). Donna Reed received the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance as Lorene Burke in the same film. They both made a cameo appearance later in Pepe (1960).
