View Full Version : Whatever happened to those high quality films of Sinatra singing. Can't seem to find them on Youtube

IIRC some years ago there was a collection of films discovered which were very high quality filmed recordings done in the 50's or 60's of Frank Sinatra singing some of his most popular songs. I would have though these would be all over YouTube, but I can't seem to find them.

Anyone know what happened to these song films?

They could've been on YouTube, some copyright holders are very good about policing YouTube and other sites for their own content, then having it removed.

This is why some uploaders on YouTube, try to fool the autobots by slightly slowing down the speed or speeding it up a tiny bit. This way companies that have automatic robots to scan YouTube, may miss it.
