Angie Dickinson’s Near Miss with Frank Sinatra in the 1960s

Back in the 1960s, a potential power couple almost emerged as Angie Dickinson now discloses her close call with tying the knot with the legendary figure, Frank Sinatra.

In an upcoming interview on CBS Sunday Morning scheduled for February 24, the 87-year-old actress shares that she and the music icon came incredibly close to exchanging vows following their collaboration in the 1960 movie Ocean’s 11.

Reflecting on the past, Angie reveals, “We almost got married in 1964,” highlighting Sinatra’s reluctance towards settling down.

Expressing her own reservations, Angie recalls telling the renowned singer, “I wouldn’t wish that on anybody.”

She candidly confesses that she did not desire to marry Sinatra, fearing the prospect of declining his proposal if he had asked.

Instead of walking down the aisle with Frank Sinatra, the Dressed to Kill star chose to marry composer Burt Bacharach in 1965.

Despite their union ending in 1981, they shared a daughter named Lea Nikki, who sadly passed away in 2007.

Angie did not hold back when discussing her ex-husband, stating firmly, “He never loved me.”

She elaborates that Sinatra’s way of loving was lacking in respect towards her.

While Angie admits to having strong feelings for her former spouse, Sinatra went on to have four marriages throughout his life.

His first marriage was to Nancy Barbato from 1939 to 1951, followed by a six-year union with actress Ava Gardner.

Sinatra later tied the knot with Mia Farrow in 1996, but their relationship ended in 1968.

Frank’s most enduring marriage was to model Barbara Sinatra, lasting until his unfortunate passing due to a heart attack in 1998 at the age of 82.

Barbara, his fourth wife, also passed away in 2007 at the age of 90.
