A Little Night Music: Frank Sinatra Sings 'My Kind Of Town (Chicago Is)' From The 1964 Film 'Robin And The 7 Hoods'
I've always enjoyed rewatching the 1964 film Robin and the 7 Hoods with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, and Bing Crosby.
The film is influenced clearly by Damon Runyon's crime stories. I love the cinematic camaraderie of the Rat Pack entertainers as well as the humor and drama of this musical gangster film. I especially love the songs, which were scored by Nelson Riddle.
