Rob Shuter reports…. Liza Minnelli has nothing but great things to say about Frank Sinatra in public.
However, privately, the dying icon told pals she wasn’t such a fan of Ol’ Blue Eyes … and all that jazz!
“Liza thinks her version of ‘New York, New York,’ is much better than Frank’s,” a source told The National ENQUIRER.

The tune was written as the theme for the 1977 Martin Scorsese musical of the same name, costarring Liza and Robert DeNiro, but only hit the charts after Sinatra recorded it three years later.
“She was furious with him that he recorded the song after her and had a bigger hit with it.”
