A head-and-shoulders photo of the bearded, broadly smiling singer. Frankie Laine [1913-2007] was an American singer, songwriter and actor whose career spanned 75 years. His hits included "That's My Desire", "That Lucky Old Sun", "Jezebel", "High Noon" and "Rawhide". He played a significant role in the Civil Rights movements of the 1950s and 1960s. When Nat King Cole's television show was unable to find a sponsor, Laine crossed the color line and became the first white artist to appear as a guest, foregoing his normal salary of $10,000. Many other leading white singers followed suit. Very good .
