Saint Sinatra! Why not?
Huffington Post - about 1 year
For some years I've harbored a secret hope that one day Frank Sinatra would be made a saint. I know this sounds crazy. But with his 100th birthday coming up on December 12th now's the time to explain why. In this day and age the very concept of 'saint' is a quaint reminder of a superstitious past. When Paul VI de-sainted Christopher in 1969, travelers were robbed of a talisman they felt worked, as they confined useless St. Christopher medals to languish in desk drawers. Yet hasn't Pope Francis already canonized 26 saints, Benedict 45 and John Paul II a whopping 110? That's a total of 181 new saints no one knows anything about. The only one I'm familiar with is Kateri Tekakwitha, because as a child I thought it odd to see an Indian maiden in braids, cast in bronze on the doors to St. Patrick's Cathedral. Driving along the roads in Ireland when I spy churches named for Saint Mel, Mal, Munis and Gobnait, I wonder who they are and how they escaped the Papal axe. The only one I ...

A NYLON Affair
Huffington Post - over 3 years
So, here I am, at an Italian café at London Heathrow terminal one, waiting for my flight to Greece. I arrived a couple of hours ago from New York and I managed to fit a mini vacations trip to my home country before going back to London to start my new job. New York... What a city to live in, what an adventure! I spent my last 14 months in New York after graduating from Wharton School and taking a risk by choosing to start my own company when most of my classmates returned to the grown up life and got a corporate job. However, the entrepreneurial path allowed me to put into action all the knowlede from my MBA. I was productive and creative, full of energy and courage to start things from scratch and feel the magic as they grew, self-taught news things, learn how to manage my resources in the most efficient way and inspire everyone involve along the way. A year ago, on September 13, I launched Lady and Lara in my apartment's kitchen and it was the most scary thing I did; yep, it beats ...

Liz Smith: Frank Sinatra -- He Did it... Ava's Way! Also -- Awarding Jackie Bisset -- Celebrating Arlene Dahl -- A Thank You From Jane Fonda
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"I don't make people comfortable. But that's what couches are for!" said writer Donna Lynn Hope. Here is one extra tidbit gleaned from the brand new book about the late MGM star Ava Gardner. Writer Peter Evans talked, in London, with the movie star who has been named "the most beautiful woman ever." These talks and Evans' ideas have now come out in "Ava Gardner: The Secret Conversations." Toward the end of this book, Ava became quite exercised over the easily believed idea that "The Mob" ever gave her beloved Frank Sinatra anything, especially during the singer-actor's fallow period in the early Fifties. This was a time when Ava's own career was booming but Sinatra couldn't get himself arrested. The Ava-Frank romance was anything but calm. They loved one another but could not get along. Ava was adamant and furious in defending Frank, during the period that his career was in ruins. She insisted no criminal elements ever helped him back to success. "I did!" ...

Jay Weston: Paul Anka's "My Way," Reviewed from the Inside!
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
For most of the first decade of his amazing 60 year career, I was Paul Anka's publicist. So I read his new autobiography, MY WAY (St. Martin's Press) with special interest. It all began for me with a phone call in the late '50s from a Washington, D.C. drugstore owner-turned-talent manager named Irv Feld, who heard I had finished representing Sammy Davis, Jr. after several years. He asked if I would take on his new client, a young fifteen-year old singer/songwriter just down to N.Y. from Canada. The song he was pushing was "Diana" and I learned he was sleeping in the bathtub of an apartment in the President Hotel occupied by a fellow Canadian music group called The Rover Boys ("Graduation Day") who coincidentally were being managed by my best friend, Fred Amsel. For the first months of his New York visit, Paul camped out anywhere he could get a bed, although eventually the Anka family, father Andy, mother Camy, sister Mariam and brother Andy moved down from Ottawa to Tenafly ...

Liz Smith: Frank Sinatra Did It His Way. Will Oliver Stone Do Sinatra's Life His Way? Maybe
Huffington Post - about 4 years
"I'VE WANTED to make a movie about Frank Sinatra for years. I love his music. And his life was so majestic and full of richness on every level." That was Oliver Stone, talking to an admirer, who had approached the director to compliment him on his ongoing Showtime series, Untold History, and his amazing book that spawned the series, "The Untold History of the United States." How did the subject of Sinatra arise? Well, Oliver just happened to be dining at the fabled La Dolce Vita restaurant in Beverly Hills. (Where Frank himself always ordered the chicken piccata and eggplant parmigiana.) It was New Year's Eve, and Oliver, though with family and friends, didn't mind chatting with a knowledgeable fan. The restaurant was playing Sinatra recordings, and Stone suddenly exclaimed, "Man, those are such great songs!" This led to the fan asking why Stone, who has made so many films about real-life persons, has never tackled Sinatra? Oliver gave the above quote, and add ...
