|Among only a handful of entertainers who bridged the gap between '50s rock fans and their Sinatra-loving parents, Bronx-born pop legend Bobby Darin's life and career were short but extraordinary. In 1959 the singer/composer rocketed to stardom with 2 Grammy Awards-Best New Artist and Record of the Year for the #1 smash "Mack the Knife." His other signature smash provides the title for this biopic chronicling his genre-defying music, tempestuous marriage to starlet Sandra Dee, and untimely death at age 37-in 1973-from a heart defect acquired during a childhood illness. Kate Bosworth stars as Dee, and Darin is brought to life by Academy Award®-winner Kevin Spacey, who also directed the film and sings 18 of the artist's classic hits.|

Sounds a lot like Bobby Darin11/28/2007
Keven Spacey sounds so much like Bobby Darin it's eerie. Great performances based on Darin's original arrangements.
Spacey sings beautifully!1/17/2005
What a joy to listen to this soundtrack. I am a purist, hardly ever like to listen to other artists doing the songs that were originated, or at least made popular, by a certain performer/band, but Kevin Spacey does an excellent job of finding Bobby Darin's style and he matches the joy that Bobby Darin had while singing. Thank you Mr. Spacey...loved the movie too!
