The Chairman of the Board has a swingin' time in the 1964 musical comedy "Robin and the 7 Hoods," which transplants the hero out of the hood of Nottingham into 1930s Chicago. Old Blue Eyes plays a gangster named Robbo who gets involved in a gangland war after his friend and boss of the underworld ( Edward G. Robinson) is knocked off by a rival gang. And his merry men are Rat Pack cronies, Dino and Sammy. Sinatra also is in fine voice singing the Oscar-nominated hit "My Kind of Town."
