* HeReallyCanAct: An essential part of GrowingTheBeard above. In TheForties he co-starred in a couple of musicals with Creator/GeneKelly as a pleasant juvenile lead. Then he won that well-deserved Oscar in ''Film/FromHereToEternity'' and demonstrated [[Film/TheManchurianCandidate several]] [[Film/VonRyansExpress more]] times that it was no fluke.

* MagnumOpusDissonance: [[Music/MyWay "My Way" ]]is Sinatra's most famous song, yet he didn't write it himself (Claude François' "Comme d' Habitude" was the originator) and he didn't like it that much himself. Many Sinatra would likely argue that there are better Sinatra songs around, yet nobody denies that it sums up pretty much everything that makes the singer great.

** Doubles as a TearJerker is the song "My Way". As he contemplates his life Frank admits that while he's made plenty of mistakes he's still proud of it, claiming that he lived it his way and no one else's.
