He died in Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, California on October 13, 1988 at the age of 75. Melvin Frank himself made this recording about two weeks before his death on September 29th, 1988 while laid up in the hospital. This recording documents some of his last wishes and reveals accounts of his memories including the first time he saw a woman's pubic hair and other interesting sexual episodes. The recording on cassette tape was discovered in a junk store in Berkeley, California and invoked curiosity as it was titled "Dad - Tape 4".
