117. Lost and Found | Frank Sinatra & The Original 1964 Black and White Ball

In this episode, our journey takes us into the Hollywood Hills in April of 1964, attending the original Black and White Ball, given by the Dunnes, in honor of their 10th wedding anniversary – long before the far-more-remembered November 1966 affair presented by Truman Capote, who was a guest at the first one.

This celebrated party provides Dominick Dunne with a few clues along the way in anticipation of his coming third act, connected through a sandwich of Frank Sinatra layers.
