I finally got to follow up on a story the Duke of Downriver, the late great Heinz Prechter, used to tell regarding a job he once did for the chairman of the board, Frank Sinatra.

Sinatra asked Heinz to install a sunroof in a new Jaguar that Sinatra planned to give as a surprise gift.

Heinz followed his instructions to drive the car with the new sunroof to a certain alley and leave it there.

The recipient?

Young actress Mia Farrow.

Mia told me on my radio show she certainly remembered the gift from her husband, but never knew the rest of the story.
