Frank Sinatra Biography
Sinatra is an American icon. His official career was singing: he began as a rail-thin crooner during World War II, and matured into the most respected pop singer of his generation. He also took up acting, winning an Academy Award for his performance in From Here To Eternity (1953, with Burt Lancaster). Along the way Sinatra developed a reputation as a stylish, fast-living, fist-fighting swinger. He was the acknowledged leader of the Hollywood ’Rat Pack’ of the early 1960s, which included Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and others. Among his best-known tunes are the standards Come Fly With Me, New York, New York, All the Way, Strangers in the Night and One For My Baby (And One More For the Road). He ranks with Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley and The Beatles as among the most influential pop musicians of the 20th century.
The Miura was first show to the public at the November 1965 Turin Auto Show. At the time, it did not have a body. It was just a rolling-chassis. The design was mid-engined, very revolutionary at the time. Bertone was chosen to body the vehicle. Nuccio Bertone gave the project to Marcello Gandini. In early 1966 the Bertone body and the chassis designed by Giampaolo Dallara were assembled into one unit. In completed form, it was show to the public at the 1966 Geneva Auto Show and dubbed the Miura. The name coming from a breed of Spanish fighting bulls.
