Restoring Frank Sinatra by Milton H. Greene


It was for a Look magazine story on Hollywood stars that Milton H. Greene photographed a galaxy of the eras brightest stars including this image of the Chairman of the Board, Frank Sinatra, at the Beverly Hills Hotel in December of 1954.

“Not wanting to go to the studio, Frank preferred to be photographed at Milton’s bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel. He came beautifully dressed and looking elegant. After getting that series, Milton looking for a more casual look, asked him to put on his sweater and hat and go outside for a change of atmosphere. This turned out to be one of Frank’s favorites and his mother Dolly loved the photograph so much that she had put it on her mantelpiece,” Amy Greene from But That’s Another Story.

In this video, Milton’s son, Joshua, goes through the photography restoration process for this classic image.
