On July 19th 1966, a 50 year-old Frank Sinatra wed a (polite cough) 21 year-old Mia Farrow. It was Frank’s third wedding, and it would not be his last. Shortly after the nuptials, Farrow reneged on an agreement to costar in the upcoming Sinatra flick “The Detective”. She had a conflict with a little film called “Rosemary’s Baby”. Sinatra’s response: he had Farrow served with divorce papers on the set.
Songwriting duo Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen created “Love and Marriage” for a musical based on Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town” in 1938. Sinatra sang it then, and in this recording, a Capitol 78 from 1956.
