About The Rat Pack
The Rat Pack was the name used by the Hollywood media and the general public and adopted by the group. They were iconic figures in the 1960s. The epitome of cool. They had elegance, panache, glamour, and an allure of je-ne-sais-quois recklessness.
Sinatra was the "Voice"; Martin was the happy-go-lucky, dashing crooner and resident wit; Lawford was a handsome Hollywood leading man and brother-in-law of JFK; Bishop was the comedian; and song-and-dance man "Smokey" Davis – "Mr. Wonderful" – was perhaps the most talented of the lot.
The name was first believed to be used by Humphrey Bogarts wife Lauren Bacall.
After seeing her husband return home with Sinatra and pals saying, "what a Ratpack".
They were a phenomenon and sold out almost all of their appearances, and people would come pouring into Las Vegas, in particular "the Sands" to be part of the Rat Pack entertainment experience.
"Often, when one of the members was scheduled to give a performance, the rest of the Pack would show up for an impromptu show. Billboards would read, "Dean Martin, Maybe Frank, maybe Sammy!"
Peter Lawford was the brother-in-law of President John F Kennedy and the group campaiged for him in July 11, 1960 for the Democratic convention. in Los Angeles.
Sinatra was so keen to have the president Kennedy stay at his home he even made him a helipad in the grounds of his Palm Springs mansion. However Robert Kennedy.. his brother advised the president to sever his ties to Sinatra because of the entertainer's association with Mafia figures such as Sam Giancana and instead stayed with Bing Crosby.
Sinatra blamed Peter Lawford andhis part in Robin and the Seven Hoods was given to Bing Crosby.
In 1981, Martin and Davis appeared together in the film Cannonball Run and were joined by Sinatra in the sequel Cannonball Run 2 This would be the last time that the three would appear in a movie together.
Another reunion was on March 13, 1988 Sinatra, Davis, and Martin announced a 29 date tour, called Together Again, and sponsored by HBO. The tour began at theOakland Alameda Coliseum Arena enjoyed by a sold-out crowd of 14,500.
Davis opened the show, followed by Martin and then Sinatra; after an interval, the three performed a medley of songs. During the show, Martin threw a lighted cigarette at the audience; this, coupled with his increasingly blasÚ attitude to the tour and his frustration with Sinatra's anger over hotel accommodations in Chicago, led to his leaving the tour after only four performances. Martin cited 'kidney problems' as the reason for his departure. Eliot Weisman, Sinatra's representative, suggested replacing Martin with his client, Liza Minelli With Minnelli, the tour was called The Ultimate Event, and continued internationally to great success.
