"Frank retired from the outlaw world after seven years as Frisco president and is now surfing the South Pacific. Frank is the George Washington of Angeldom; his name is mentioned with reverence, among other chapters as well as Frisco. 'He was the best president we ever had,' they say. 'He held us together and he was good for us.' Frank had class, and he set many styles - from the gold earring to the purple-dyed beard to the clip-on nose ring he wore whenever he had the right audience. All during his reign, form 1955 to 1962, he held a steady job as a respected cameraman, but he needed more action than any job could provide. For this he had the Angels, a vehicle for his humour and fantasies, a sop for any aggressions and an occasional chance to bust out of the workday murk like some kind of sabre-rattling golem and lay at least a small jolt on people he had no other way of reaching. Frank was so completely hip that he went down to Hollywood and bought the blue-and-yellow striped sweatshirt that Lee Marvin wore in The Wild One."
