Frank and Ava Party

LA Beat Review: This film is Heartfelt

The latest rendition in an unforgettable exploration of the life, times, and love between Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner, this film in conjunction with the evening in question, is as heartfelt, and humorous as it is heartrending.

BWW Review: “Hot stuff of the post-World War II tabloids”

The movie has some of the feel of film noir, capturing the sharp New York/New Jersey cadences of hot shots, tough guys, sexy dames, and mouthy gossip columnists, offset by a smooth jazz and pop song soundtrack. There’s also wit and a smack of caricature in the representation of the characters ~ a device teasingly suggested in an opening note: “Most of what you’re about to see…is on the level.”
