  1. Newbie perhaps but as a long time fan of older movies (1940s to 1960s), I'm as entitled to "strong" opinions as any one here. What I meant by "punk-ish" is the tough guy persona that Sinatra always seems to affect, i.e. acting like a "punk". It never came off as believable to me. Little man's bluster, in my opinion.

P.S. Marlon what's-his-name
