Director Martin Scorsese would like to focus on pivotal moments of the music icon such as his growing up years, greatest hits, involvement with politics, and his love life.
And, of course the many relationships in his life, both romantic and platonic, including four marriages.
One of his most controversial relationships was with Judy Garland. Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland had a romantic relationship during two different time periods. The first time was in 1949 as these two legendary singers got together on a trip to the Hamptons. Their secret and romantic rendezvous happened when Judy Garland was still recovering from her nervous breakdown and needed much rest, support and comfort. Frank Sinatra, being the romantic type and caring person that he was, accompanied Judy Garland and their love blossomed there in the beautiful views of the Hamptons. However, during that time, Judy Garland was still married to the director named Vincente Minnelli. The second time that they were romantically involved was in 1955. He had just separated from Ava Gardner when he got together with Judy Garland. During that time, Judy Garland was still with Sid Luft, her third husband.
It is interesting to note that his relationship with Judy Garland was one of the special relationships that he had in his life. Up to now, it is the subject of many conversations and books about Frank Sinatra after many years that have passed.
