    Bob, I could care less what ANY magazine or newspaper has to say about the matter, but, there are no two ways about it, Ronan looks exactly like Frank, especially in his eyes and other facial effects. Ronan may not be Frank's child, but it is very hard to dismiss the idea that he could be, just looking at him. I think that Ronan looks more like Frank, than Frank Jr. Tina and Nancy combined!

    And while we're on the topic of Ronan, thank you MSNBC, for finally taking his GOD awful talk show off the air, as it was truly embarrassing!

    Put his face photo next to one of Mia, and you'll see who he REALLY looks like, Chris. :)

    Again, I can't believe people are still talking about this.

    Im currently on the train to see On The Town in Tribeca! I will report back with details and the set list of the concert afterwards. Im very curious to see what Tony Bennett is gonna perform.

    This will be the fifth time I will be seeing him sing live.

    Sorry for the delay, Paul.

    The evening was very nice although it was not in a theater. More like a warehouse with chairs! Semi-comfortable chairs. The event seemed far from sold out.

    I couple people from Tribeca spoke a few words as well as a Lincoln spokesperson. tribeca is sponsored by Lincoln. He claimed that Frank owned a Lincoln...blah, blah, blah.

    AJ Lambert introduced the movie. She said that growing up with Frank there were more movies on than music.

    The restoration seemed very nice but it could have looked better. I think the digital projector is was being shown on was just so-so. The film has never looked better and the colors have been improved greatly! It is nice to know someone cares about this film.

    After the show the concert began. The band was live. The set list:

    Lea Delaria: Luck Be A Lady and Just In Time
    Savion Glover danced to the Billy May arrangment of Come Dance With Me.
    Ne-Yo: You Make Me Feel So Young and I Could Have Danced All Night
    Ella Smith: duet with Ne-Yo on The Lady Is A Tramp. Then she solo-ed on Fly Me To The Moon
    Brandon Flowers: The House I Live In
    Tony Bennett: I've Got the World On A String and In The Wee Small Hours.
    Lea, Brandon, Ne-Yo and Ella did an emaemble performance of New York, New York.

    As you could imagine, Tony was the highlight of the concert. Tony only used his quartet. Lea Delaria was the second best. Savion Glover was also incredibly impressive.

    By the way, if anyone is curious about viewing Tony's performance...PM me!

    Boy was this screening fun! It was a blast seeing High Society on a big screen. And it was FREE! All fridays during the Tribeca film festival are free.

    The film has never looked better or sounded better. The picture was so sharp and the score was so present.

    Frank was great as always!

    Maybe they should focus on trying to get the music right. The legacy was created on the foundation of some of the most important music created in the last 100 years. And music is almost an afterthought.

    Check out this story about Mr. S from retired NYPD member Sonny Grosso!!!! AMAZING STORY!!!!

    "We were working on Contract on Cherry Street (1977) when Manhattan had an electrical blackout. We were filming outside a police precinct and even though we could barely see the Empire State building in the background, director William Graham says, 'What a great shot this could be if we had the Empire State lit!' So as technical advisor, I go into Sinatra's trailer and he asks, 'What kind of shot is he doing?' I reply, 'Well, he wants to do one with you and the Empire State in the background. But we can barely see it.' So Sinatra smiles at me and teases, 'You want it lit?' I look at him wondering, 'What, it's like eleven thirty at night, what's he going to do about it?' Casually, he picks up the phone and I don't know who he dialed but he makes a call. And within fifteen minutes, the Empire State is lit by its own back-up generators. I'm thinking, 'Who in God's name would have that power?' The Chairman of the Board -- you bet your ass! To me, he was the biggest star of all time, and could call presidents, kings, queens, princes and princesses, and any Hollywood star or famous celebrity and they'd get on the phone with him."

    Even at her age, if I may say so, Tina is still fine-looking.
