The death of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis inspired testimonials of love and respect across all divisions of social class and political party. She was the most famous woman in the world in a long period following that of the great stars of old Hollywood and preceding that of our own pop princesses, Diana and Madonna. Why?

Why wouldn't Frank Sinatra and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis be among them? The two legendary celebs spent a night together in September 1975, according to "Sinatra: Behind the Legend," a dishy and probably unverifiable new account of the singer's life.

At 14, Jackie already floated high most days. "Whether I was happy, sad, mad - it didn't matter what my feelings were - when I got up in the morning, I needed to get high," she said. "It was the first thing I thought of. " From the time she was in elementary school, drugs dominated her life. For that high, she did almost anything, went almost anywhere.

Maybe it was the rain that hadn't yet fallen, the half-empty moon hanging low over the Atlantic, or the fact that the summer season was lurching to its sad, sunburned end on Long Beach Island. But on this off night downashore, the dim, triple-bar Cypress Room of Crane's Surf City Hotel was up and bumping. At least 500 folks were hooting, hollering, blathering along as Paul "Presto" Pestritto and Jack "Jackie V" Vitale careened about the Cypress Room's center bar and broke into "that immortal Italian classic, 'Whatsamatta U!
