Jacquie O looks a little flushed and, may I say, a little disheveled, and Francis Albert looks a tad spaced. Are we talking "post-tryst" here? Enquiring minds need to know.

There were rumors at the time (this was in the mid-70s) that something was going on between the recently-widowed Mrs. Onassis and The Voice (who was between wives at the time), because this wasn't the only time he was seen escorting her to events around New York.

My guess is that this is as far as it went. After all, it was an open secret when she was First Lady that she loathed Sinatra and all that his friendship with her then-husband implied. She obviously changed her opinion on Sinatra (maybe she started listening to his music), but I'm not sure it extended that far.
