Yep: Sinatra, Jr. kidnapping ‘a trial run for all the weird 60s celebrity insanity that followed’
On December 8th, 1963 Frank Sinatra Jr. was kidnapped at gunpoint from a motel room at Harrah’s Club at Lake Tahoe, where he was performing a string of dates.

American was coming apart at the seams, it seemed.
