Connie Francis – Forgotten Superstar?

Connie Francis
A recent glance at late-1950s hit music recalls one of the biggest — but almost forgotten — recording stars of that era. How can we forget Connie Francis? Apparently, a lot of people have. With the exception of Elvis, Francis was a superstar before most people knew what a superstar was. She was, in fact, our top recording songstress from 1958 to 1964 and one of America’s first international female recording artists.
The triumphs and tragedies of Connie Francis’ career are captured in this mini-rockumentary I produced for a radio program director friend some years ago. Included in this revised/updated version are segments of 14 of Connie’s biggest hits. Running time is just under 6:00.
