Frank Sinatra & Jackie Gleason Out On The Town

I mentioned a few posts back about how good of friends Jackie Gleason was with Frank Sinatra. This picture is Frank sharing a laugh with Jackie Gleason at a Miami restaurant in 1964. They definitely look like they are having a great time. I wish I was at the table with these two cool cats.

I love this pic from LIFE magazine. Jackie Gleason and Frank looked like they always had a great time and many good drinks :).

Jackie always made me laugh and here he is doing the same thing to Frank. They both had great senses of humor. thanks for the pic Keith.

That does look like a good time, artwork on back wall was pretty cool. Cheers!

Love the decor of that restaurant and the beautiful gal in the background (behind Frank). Kudos to her for being able to stay in her seat with stars of that caliber inches away - I'd slowly be inching my seat closer in the hopes of striking up a convo with Ol' Blue Eyes :)


Wishing you a fantastic Thursday, Keith,
♥ Jessica

Wow, those were really the days. Jackie was super cool too, although I understand he had an ego bigger than any room he was in!

Hope you are well Keith, and thanks for voting for me!

Keith said...

Hey Terence. I know what you mean. I've been looking through Life's photos. So many great ones.

Keith said...

Hey Veronica. You are welcome about the vote. I heard Jackie had a big ego too. I probably would have if I was him. I do think it was ultra cool as was Frank. Cheers!
