FRANK AND AVA: A new film celebrates Frank Sinatra's passionate love for actress Ava Gardner. Guest RICO SIMONINI is co-writer and star of the film, portraying the Chairman of the Board.  The movie portrays a destitute Frank Sinatra pursuing the sultry starlet while campaigning for the role of Angelo Maggio in "From Here to Eternity."  The setting is 1949 and Sinatra, the former king of swoon who once enchanted millions of "bobby soxers", is at the downturn of his career as the once golden "Voice" is now compromised by a hemorrhage to his vocal cords while his reputation is lambasted by the press who parade his alleged Mafia connections, liberal sympathies, and extramarital affairs. In the midst of his despair, he falls hard and fast for Gardner, with whom he shares proclivities for passion, whiskey, obstinace, and sexual infidelities. Equal to his desire to maintain the interest of the mercurial Gardner.  Rico and Richard invite you to celebrate Sinatra's birthday with them.
