Frank Sinatra, showing the effects of his 53-hour ordeal in arranging for the release of his kidnapped son, Frank Jr.. He tells newsmen outside the Bel-Air home of his ex-wife, Nancy, that youth is home and safe. He said the kidnapers ordered him on the phone to get $240,000, and "I got it, in small bills, 5's, 20's, 50's and 100's." He flew here from Stateline, Nev. Photo dated: December 11, 1963.
