Close Encounter with Marriage: Angie Dickinson’s Revelation About Frank Sinatra

In a revealing interview with Mo Rocca for CBS SUNDAY MORNING, Hollywood icon Angie Dickinson discloses that she was once on the brink of tying the knot with legendary singer Frank Sinatra.

The interview, set to air on Sunday, Feb. 24 at 9:00 AM ET on the CBS Television Network, delves into Dickinson’s illustrious career and personal life.

The renowned duo collaborated in 1960 during the filming of “Ocean’s 11,” which sparked a romantic relationship between them.

Recalling the past, Dickinson discloses, “We came very close to exchanging vows in 1964.”

However, Sinatra hesitated due to his reservations about marrying an actress, as shared by Dickinson.

Reflecting on the situation, Dickinson candidly admits, “I understood his reluctance.

Being wed to an actress is no easy feat, and I didn’t want to subject him to that dilemma.”

At 87 years old, Dickinson opens up to Rocca about her enduring legacy in the entertainment industry, her current lifestyle, venturing into poker, addressing the #MeToo movement, and her marriage to composer Burt Bacharach.

Regarding her relationship with Bacharach, Dickinson reveals, “His affection for me was lacking the depth one expects in love.

His unique way of showing love left much to be desired, and he failed to respect me fully.”

When queried about her feelings toward Bacharach, Dickinson responds, “I held a fondness for him, but it didn’t extend to the realm of love.”

CBS SUNDAY MORNING airs every Sunday from 9:00-10:30 AM ET on the CBS Television Network under the executive production of Rand Morrison.
