Beautiful Photos of a Young Nancy Sinatra in the 1960s

With the help of Lee Hazlewood, Nancy Sinatra’s music career received a significant boost, beginning with their first collaboration that was the famous hit These Boosts are Made for Walkin’, a song that earned Sinatra 2 Grammy Award nominations. She and Hazlewood had a parallel career recording duets, and together they made hits like Summer Wine and Some Velvet Morning.

Sinatra also shared a duet with her father, Frank Sinatra, the ballad Somethin’ Stupid which earned a Grammy Award nomination for Record of the Year and to this day remains the only father-daughter duet to hit No. 1 in the United States.

In 1967, Sinatra recorded the theme song for the James Bond film You Only Live Twice. Other notable hits in this decade included Sugar Town (1966), How Does That Grab You, Darlin’? (1966), Love Eyes (1967), and Lightning’s Girl (1967).

Sinatra also enjoyed acting. She starred in films like The Oscar (1966), The Last of the Secret Agents (1966), The Wild Angels (1966), and Speedway (1968). On television, she made appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show, The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Sinatra also produced and appeared on Movin’ with Nancy, an NBC television special that won an Emmy Award for director Jack Harley Jr. and earned an Emmy Award nomination for choreographer David Winters.
