AMG REVIEW: Nancy Sinatra's hourlong 1968 network television special Movin' With Nancy, here digitally remastered for DVD, was not the standard variety-hour special customary for stars of the time. There were no lip-synced or live songs on sound stages in front of audiences, and no spoken sketches. In essence, it's a collection of 15 music videos (though MTV was still many years away), in which Sinatra lip-synced to recordings in various colorful outdoor locations, broken up by a few indoor studio-shot scenarios. For those who value Sinatra's image, one could hardly imagine a better showcase (in color) for her gaudy, florid, and numerous period late-'60s clothing outfits, go-go boots, hairstyles, and eye make-ups. In truth, the sets and stagings can be corny. But there are some pretty cool songs here, like "Some Velvet Morning," in which Lee Hazlewood and Sinatra duet on beachside horses, and "Jackson," the sole other Hazlewood-Sinatra piece, in which they sass each other while walking down an empty southern California street. Other high points, visual and musical, include "Sugar Town" by a waterfall, "Who Will Buy?" in a deserted amusement park, and "Friday's Child" in an unclassifiably desolate field of what looks like disused factory equipment and structures. It also includes Rat Pack guest appearances by Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra (filmed recording in the studio), and Sammy Davis (who does one of network TV's first interracial kisses with Nancy in their "What'd I Say" routine); Frank Sinatra Jr. has a brief cameo. The DVD runs the program intact with the commercials from sponsor RC Cola, which are actually pretty entertaining, particularly the one featuring Dino, Desi & Billy playing at the Hollywood Bowl. The DVD extras include audio commentary from Nancy Sinatra and director Jack Haley Jr., which isn't all that exciting, but does have them talking about how various sets, clothing, and shots were chosen and filmed. It would have been good if Sinatra had talked more about the music in the commentary, and the commentary also makes some inflated claims about how pioneering the visuals on this special were, even if the program was well done by the standards of its genre. The only other DVD extras of note are a mere ten minutes of "behind-the-scenes footage," which are not outtakes but soundless clips of the sets and shots being designed and prepared. This too comes with commentary by Sinatra and Haley, though what they have to say about these scraps isn't too interesting.
AMAZON SAYS: Network television was already wrestling with a generation gap and the rowdy cultural upheaval posed by rock when NBC aired this 1967 special for Nancy Sinatra, with younger viewers increasingly tuning out the typical videotaped studio productions that typified TV specials. To sidestep those conventions (and, one suspects, to showcase the star's modest performing gifts to best advantage), director Jack Haley Jr. shot Movin' with Nancy on film in and around Los Angeles, yielding sequences that anticipate the visual experiments that would characterize music videos more than a decade later. The results are intriguing: for Sinatra's fans, the chance to see her in all her leggy, miniskirted glory will be irresistible, but amateur pop sociologists will be at least as fascinated by the period details and some unwittingly bizarre undercurrents. For the putative teen viewers of the day, there's the psychedelic montage of "Some Velvet Morning," one of several duets with Sinatra's frequent partner at that time, Lee Hazlewood (a country-tinged, B-team Sonny to her blonde variation on Cher), interweaving the two singers on horseback and making much out of bewildering references to Phaedra. For the grownups, there are segments teaming her with Dean Martin (awkwardly addressed as her "god-uncle") and Sammy Davis Jr., as well as a reverential sequence in which she caresses oversized posters of her famous father (including a still from his then-current crime feature, Tony Rome, depicting him with a menacing pistol) that raises all sorts of knotty psychiatric issues. The mix of Rat Pack glitz, flower power, and mainstream pop gets an added kick with Day-Glo fashions cut to Carnaby Street lines, vintage commercials for Royal Crown Cola ("It's a mad, mad, mad, mad cola!"), and pop covers that likewise lock in a sense of temporal dislocation as Nancy gamely tackles "Up, Up and Away" (in a hot air balloon, of course) and "Who Will Buy?" from Oliver!, here goosed with go-go powered dancing. --Sam Sutherland Product Description From the very first steps of Nancy's legendary boots, this groundbreaking television special takes you on a journey through '60s pop culture. Music videos a decade before there were music videos, acclaimed choreography by David Winters, Emmy Award-winning direction by Jack Haley Jr., Nancy and Lee Hazlewood together and Frank, Dean and Sammy in their prime. A classic hour to enjoy over and over again. With trend-setting fashions, hit songs and scenic California locations, it's a trip back to a hip time with one of the coolest women in rock and roll.
