Catalogue Note

The monkey never dies for Frankie Machine.

Nominated for three Academy Awards (including one for Sinatra as Best Actor), the film generated controversy for its unusually intense depiction of heroin addiction. Sinatra prepared for his role by spending time with junkies undergoing "cold turkey" withdrawals and beat out Brando for the role. Sinatra felt that his performance in The Man with the Golden Arm was the best of his acting career, with The Joker Is Wild coming in as a close second.
