The Rat Pack was an informal group of entertainers centered on the Las Vegas casino scene. The group met at the Los Angeles home of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall.[1]

Members[change | change source]

In the 1960s the group had Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop among others. They appeared together on stage and in movies in the early 1960s, including the movies Ocean's 11,[2] Sergeants 3, and Robin and the 7 Hoods (in the last movie, Bing Crosby replaced Lawford). Sinatra, Martin, and Davis were seen as the group's lead members after Bogart's death.[3][4]
