On his way back to Hollywood for daughter Nancy's high school graduation in June 1958, Frank Sinatra stopped to see Ella Fitzgerald, who was making her second appearance at the Copacabana.  Weary from encores brought on by an exuberant prom crowd, she looked over to Sinatra, who strode onto the floor and joined her in a chorus of "Moonlight in Vermont," followed onstage by Vic Damone, then Johnny Mathis.  (Courtesy of the Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation.)
