In the s, Anka began acting in motion pictures as well as writing songs for them, most notably the theme for the hit film The Longest Day which also was the official march of the Canadian Airborne Regiment , in which he made a cameo appearance as a US Army Ranger. For his film work he wrote and recorded one of his greatest hits, " Lonely Boy ". He also wrote and recorded " My Home Town ", which was a No. He then went on to become one of the first pop singers to perform at the Las Vegas casinos.
He bought the rights and ownership of his ABC-Paramount catalog in ,  but like most North American recording artists saw his career stalled by the British Invasion. By the late s, his career focused on adult contemporary and big-band standards, played regularly in Las Vegas.
In the early s, he signed with Buddah Records , putting out two albums, a self-titled and Jubilation. The former, first released in , bore the track "She's a Lady", a song Anka composed that would become the biggest hit for Welsh singer Tom Jones that same year. Anka's version failed to become a chart success. Frustrated after more than ten years without a top 25 hit record, Anka switched labels again, which marked a turning point in his career.
Anka also wrote five songs which were included on an album by Don Goodwin. It became so popular Anka recorded it as a full song, which peaked at No. In , his album of big-band arrangements of contemporary standards, Rock Swings , provided a mainstream comeback of sorts that saw him awarded a star on Canada's Walk of Fame in Toronto. On October 12, , Anka stated that Michael Jackson 's new release titled " This Is It " was a collaborative effort between the two in According to Anka, after recording the song, Jackson decided not to use it and the tune was then recorded and released by Sa-Fire.
His album Songs of December charted at No. Already locally famous as a teenage idol for his songs in English, Anka hit the Italian market with "Summer's Gone" in ; it was released as "Dove Sei".
The record got immediate success, reaching No. His official discography reports nine singles released by RCA Italiana,  but the Italian charts list at least six other songs he interpreted or recorded in Italian. His top hit was "Ogni giorno" which scored No. He returned to Sanremo in with "La farfalla impazzita" by Battisti - Mogol.
On that occasion, the same title was interpreted by Italian crooner Johnny Dorelli. The pair of singers, however, were eliminated before the final stage of the competition. Anka, maybe only coincidentally, left the Italian scene shortly thereafter. He recorded a version of "My Way" with alternate lyrics dedicated to the sponsor of the evening. In , he recorded a duet with s Italian hitmaker Adriano Celentano , a new cover of "Diana", with Italian lyrics by Celentano-Mogol and with singer-songwriter Alex Britti on the guitar.
With less success than in Italy, Anka tried the French market as well. Several songs by Anka with French lyrics are known: one reported by the Italian charts "Faibles Femmes",  and another reported by his official discography "Comme Avant"  with Mireille Mathieu. Anka was married to Anne de Zogheb, the daughter of a Lebanese diplomat, Charles de Zogheb, from February 16, , until The couple married the following year in a ceremony at Paris-Orly Airport.
She quit modeling after their second child was born. On September 6, , he became a naturalized citizen of the United States. Anka's autobiography, My Way , co-written with David Dalton , was published in Anka's first acting role in a major film was in a cameo as an army private in The Longest Day He also composed the title song to the movie.
During the late s and early s, he starred in such teen exploitation films as Girls Town and Look in Any Window , in which he played a peeping tom. He later played an Elvis-hating casino pit manager in Miles to Graceland and a yacht broker in Captain Ron In , he made another guest appearance as himself in the "Spring" episode of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life , a revival of the original show. Anka was the subject of the National Film Board of Canada documentary Lonely Boy , considered a classic work of cinema verite.
In American Idol ' s seasons 2 and 3, he made a special appearance and sang an adapted version of " My Way " that mocked the format of the show, as well as participants, judges, and the host.
