Jess Franco-Frank Sinatra Quiz

This is the last day of May 2008, the month which marked the 10th anniversary of the death of the legendary singer/actor Frank Sinatra in May 1998. I'm reminded of a tribute paid to him by Jess Franco in one of his films where a character is heard singing one of his biggest hits.

What Frank Sinatra song was this and what was the name of the film? Extra points if you can name the performer who sang the song in the film and the name of the character that performer played.

Hint: both the song and the movie are vintage mid-1960s.

Was it the song "Chicago" in "Succubus" (aka "Necronomicon - Geträumte Sünden", 1968)? I think it was sang by 2 people, Jack Taylor and Adrian Hoven.

Yes, you are both correct, it is CHICAGO heard in NECRONOMICON. It is sung/whistled by Jack Taylor and co producer Pier A. Cammenecci. Thanks for participating. BTW, there's yet another Franco film from that time period where another Sinatra song is performed. But that's another quiz....

Um.... "My Way" sung by Christopher Lee in "Castle of Fu Manchu"? (kidding!)
