One for Our Baby
For the sake of Ol' Blue Eyes, a pilot searches California for the woman they both love
When World War II ended, fighter ace Joe Buonomo didn't make it back for the parades. After nearly a decade adrift in troubled seas, he washed up in California, determined to re-claim his life. In 1954, he met Helen, one of the fresh-faced girls eager to break into Hollywood. They fell blissfully in love and got engaged—until Joe's post-war past intervened, and he lost his fiancée. Years later, Joe's running an air freight business and doing the occasional odd job for a certain crooner named Frank Sinatra. One afternoon, Joe agrees to give Sinatra's latest honey a lift to Los Angeles, where she has a screen test the next morning. Not until she arrives at the airport does he realize it's Helen. After just a few hours together, Joe and Helen confess their old feelings still burn. But the next day, Helen never makes it to the studio. She's vanished into thin air. To find her, Joe will have to go up against the mob, the FBI, and the forces behind presidential candidate John F. Kennedy. The only catch is, who is he rescuing her for—Sinatra? Or himself?
