Okay, so you probably know Sinatra’s version better. Frankie was even considered for Marlon’s Sky Masterson role, but studio execs wanted Brando’s box-office appeal front and center. As you can hear…well, he was no Sinatra. But he was aware of his own shortcomings… he even claimed that sound engineers fudged the results, dicing and splicing the recording to make him sound better. The only problem, he claimed: they left out the spots where he drew breath, giving the impression that the whole song was delivered with a single lungful. You decide:
Apparently Sinatra and Brando had a…bit of a rivalry.
