Guess what. It's Frank's World. We just live in it.

Since I've been under the weather, I've been rather glued to the telly, as I haven't felt like doing much else. My channel surfing led me to discover that May is Sinatra Month on TMC, with his films running on Wednesday and Sunday evenings. Cool. Very cool. I staggered out of bed long enough to set the DVR to catch some of my favorites, including "Guys and Dolls" (which is great, despite the fact that Brando. Cannot. Sing.); "On the Town" and one of my all-time favorites, "High Society."
A musical adaptation of "The Philadelphia Story", the film features music by Cole Porter and performances from Sinatra, Grace Kelly, Bing Crosby and Celeste Holm. No wonder I love it.
Here are a couple of my favorite numbers from this gem featuring, natch, Francis Albert.
"Who Wants to Be a Millionaire", with the charming Celeste Holm
"Did You Evah", with Der Bingle
"Mind If I Make Love to You", with Miss Kelly
