For some, the Rat Pack, made up of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop were a lesson in excess. For others, they were the consummate example of cool. And for still others, they could only be surmised in one word: fun.
Regardless of your perspective, the lasting legacy of the Rat Pack cannot be denied. The influence of "The Clan," as they preferred to be called, has lasted through the decades since their run on top in Las Vegas and they are still being talked about today. How did the group start? Who else of the Hollywood elite was a member? And why does the Rat Pack still endure? We discuss all this and more with author Shawn Levy.
