* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: See "Berserk Button" above, then listen to Jill St. John, Angie Dickinson, Creator/ShirleyMacLaine, Patty Duke, Doris Day, Juliet Prowse, etc. etc. etc. etc. talk about how Frank was always a perfect gentleman to the ladies. Mia Farrow called Sinatra "sweet", twenty years after their divorce.
** It's widely thought that Creator/AvaGardner was the great love of Sinatra's life. They remained close all their lives even after the divorce, and when heard she was sick (with her final illness) in 1990, he arranged for his own doctors to see her. Being in poor health himself at the time, he couldn't get to her funeral in North Carolina, but made sure that a prominent floral tribute was there.
** NiceToTheWaiter: Studio musicians adored him. Accounts by people who worked with him agree that although he didn't exactly gush with praise for people's performances, he was an absolutely focused professional who knew exactly what he wanted and was quick to express his satisfaction when he got it. There are also various stories of him being generous with money to musicians who were in trouble.

* CombatPragmatist: Sinatra was this with regard to his own voice. When he was young, he had a relatively weak voice but he compensated by emulating BingCrosby and becoming a master of mic control. As he became middle-aged, his voice deepened and he changed his singing style to compensate; for those who prize his Capitol-era recordings above the others, this was when he [[GrowingTheBeard grew the beard]]. All the way along, whenever his voice changed, he made the change his own rather than fight against it. The result was that he had an exceptionally long career.



* EveryScarHasAStory: Frank was delivered clumsily, with forceps, by a {{back alley doctor}} which resulted in a cleft running from his ear to the jawline. But that's not the extent of it: the cartilage of his left ear was mashed, giving the appearance of "cauliflower ear." Sinatra later told his daughter Nancy that when he was eleven, after some playmates began to call him "Scarface," he stormed over to the house of the physician who had delivered him. Fortunately, the doctor wasn't home, and a singing career wasn't abruptly canceled on account of murder.

Sinatra was ''decades'' ahead of the curve regarding race relations. In one case, he forced a hotel to desegregate by announcing that either they would allow Sammy Davis Jr. (and other black people) to stay there, or he and a number of other members of the Creator/RatPack would not only ''not'' stay there, they wouldn't perform there, either. The pressure applied by him and his fellow Rat Packers was instrumental in causing UsefulNotes/LasVegas to become one of the first cities to fully desegregate.
