Biography
Crooner with the Harry James and Tommy Dorsey orchestras who emerged as the pop idol of millions of bobbysoxers in the early 1940s. Slightly built and possessed of undeniably magnetic charm, Sinatra made his first acting appearance in 1943 at RKO and soon moved to MGM, where he generally played boyish innocents unaware of their allure for women. His best features amidst this light, breezy fare were two musicals casting him and Gene Kelly as sailor pals, "Anchors Aweigh" (1945) and "On the Town" (1949). His popularity continued until the end of the decade until several poor films and hemorrhaged vocal chords brought the first phase of his career to an end in 1952.
