Storyline

At the beginning of the program, Peter Lawford explains that Frank Sinatra's plans to film his TV special outdoors in sunny Palm Springs have foundered because an extended rainstorm has turned their desert location into a morass of mud. The company is forced to move inside a stark studio instead and delivers their songs with a minimum of props but a maximum of verve. Written by David Bassler
