Connie Francis, the world's bestselling female recording artist of the 1950s and '60s, greets old pal Neil Sedaka on Thursday at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino near Hollywood, where Sedaka received the Connie Francis Lifetime Achievement Award.

Sedaka, 75, presented Francis, 76, with a photo of themselves taken a half-century ago, about the time he co-wrote her biggest hit song, Where the Boys Are.

The stars, along with other ‘50s pop music icons including Joni James and the Platters, appeared at a Footlighters social club benefit for sick and indigent performers.
