Luck Be A Lady: Celebrating Sinatra: Coincidence? Chance?

Bob Belvedere, Pundette (with the version from A Man And His Music) and Mark Steyn (with a Harveyesque, the rest of the story) all put Luck Be A Lady at Number 50 of their Sinatra Greatest Song Countdown...Coincidence, Chance?  No, Kismet! Sometimes the dice just go your way...

Here is the live Sinatra at the Sand's version (with Quincy Jones orchestrating and the Count Basie Orchestra):

Sinatra's Nathan Detroit steals the movie...

Here is the trailer for Guys and Dolls (which is worth watching just for Ed Sullivan's narration):

Frank Sinatra and Vivian Blaine, two New Jersey kids!

Vivian Blaine and Jean Simmons taking on Brando and Sinatra

 Frank's relationship with Marlon was in a way method acting

A Hopperesque quality to this Film/Photography Directing

EBL: Polkadots and Moonbeams, Moonlight Becomes You, and Jimmy Van Heusen

Don’t forget to also keep checking out
Pundette’s Sinatra 100 countdown,
Ms Evi’s Sinatra Celebration,
Dispatches from the Camp of the Saints Sinatra, &
Mark Steyn’s Sinatra Songs Of The Century.
It’s a swingin’ world.
