THE NIGHT WE CALLED IT A DAY is a comedy based on the true story of Frank Sinatra's uproarious visit to Sydney in 1974. The local press hound him and in true Sinatra style he retaliates, calling the press 'fags and hookers' at his opening concert.
The Australian trade unions then blackball Frank, trapping him in his hotel room - no water, room service etc, and no fuel for his Lear jet to get him back home - until he apologises. But there are two things Frank never does, 'yawn in the presence of the woman he loves...and say sorry'.
Frank Sinatra's comeback trip 'down-under' made headlines around the world. Even US President Nixon commented that he wished the saga would continue to keep him off the front page during Watergate!
