There could be so many posters celebrating the screen career of Frank Sinatra. But this is one of my very favourite of his films, a smart and beautiful adaptation of Fannie Hurst’s story of a smalltown musical family – three daughters whose romantic lives are charted in all their ups and downs. Sinatra charms the youngest, played by Doris Day. It is a fine, marvellously shot drama with great songs – including the title tune. ‘Swonderful. It is one hundred years since the birth of Sinatra. Who could have imagined the twentieth century without him?
