50th American Presidential Inaugural, The (1985)

This is the celebration of the second term of Ronald W. Reagan. One of my favorite selections from the entire archive. How many productions have Frank Sinatra as the Producer & Director of Entertainment? The expressions of love and appreciation are sincere and heartfelt, this is a joy to watch. More than a party, there are wonderful performances by Pearl Bailey, Mikhail Baryshnikov, The Beach Boys, Ray Charles, Mac Davis, Michael Davis, Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers, Crystal Gayle, Rich Little, Dean Martin, Lou Rawls, Don Rickles, and Donna Summer. All exceptional, Rickles does eight minutes and kills.
