Mark Steyn explores the Falk-Sinatra link more fully in today's Song of the Week:

I’ve no idea how Falk got the role, and even less how he got the opening number. It’s a dotty moment that raises expectations the film as a whole never quite delivers on. But it’s his song: In a film with Sinatra, Crosby, Martin and Davis, he got a solo especially written for him by Cahn & Van Heusen and handled it wonderfully. (You can watch it here.)
Read the whole thing. (And many thanks to Mark for the link.)
