Pictured here is the legendary “Rat Pack”, consisting of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop outside Sands Casino, Las Vegas, 1960. The term “Rat Pack” was coined by the media to refer to the informal group of entertainers centered on the Las Vegas casino scene.

Sinatra, Martin, and Davis were regarded as the group's leaders so to speak, and the group also included Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall among others. The Rat Pack appeared together on stage and in films in the early 1960s, including the films Ocean's 11, Sergeants 3, and then Robin and the 7 Hoods; in which Bing Crosby replaced Lawford.
