In need of a grubstake, a young man convinces a couple of friends to help him kidnap Frank Sinatra Jr. It’s a true story.
User Reviews: Forty years ago when Frank Sinatra Jr. was kidnapped, those who read the story weren’t sure how seriously to take it. Intentionally or unintentionally, this movie captures the uneasiness. Sinatra Jr. is portrayed as a hapless dweeb, his kidnappers as quixotic eccentrics. An excellent soundtrack featuring period music serves to distance us from the whole 1960s setting. But other touches, particularly James Russo’s brief appearances as Sinatra Sr., give a powerful believability to the family’s victimization.
