Tribute To Frank Sinatra
A tribute to Frank Sinatra, a behind the scenes look at his Friar’s Club testimonial and interviews with some of his friends. Frank Sinatra is one of the most generous people in public life but has had a bad press over his 40 year career. Geraldo interviews Don Rickles, Cary Grant, Jerry Weintraub and Sinatra himself at a pre-dinner party. Mary Hartman is a sort of an adult soap opera, a sort of R rated spoof on soap operas. None of the networks would touch it for topics explored included impotence, VD, and adultery. Producer Norman Lear managed to line up his own network of more than 70 independent stations across the country and the show is now one of the hottest on TV. Louise Lasser, the star of the show was interviewed by Geraldo in her home. Rape, a deviant, dehumanizing act committed by a deranged person, with total disregard for the health or safety of his victim. A clinic in Minnesota does some kind of work with rape victims. Geraldo makes a commentary on the case after the interview. Finally, a film report is shown of this year’s carnival in Rio with a unique view of Brazilian voodoo worship.
