Frank Sinatra started off his career as a saloon singer. He joined various groups and bands, building his name up, and eventually performed solo. He was well received by teens and adults alike and became the teenage heartthrob. Once he had conquered the world of music Sinatra moved on to his next goal: acting in Hollywood films. He had a rocky start, as he was mis-cast in various film flops, and even hit the lowest point in his life and career when he hemorrhaged his vocal chord. But Sinatra kickstarted his career again when he fought for the part of Maggio, in From Here to Eternity, against all odds and ended up winning an oscar for his performance in the film. From this point on it was all uphill as Sinatra acted in films, led a group of talented rowdies known as the Rat Pack, recorded various albums and singles, performed for benefits, raised money for charities, and even tried his own hand at producing and directing. Sinatra kept busy, recording and performing even after the usual age of retirement.
