The “Rat Pack” will forever be associated with chasing women, Las Vegas, and performing as “The Summit at the Sands” while filming Ocean's Eleven in early 1960.
Frank, to quote Ellington, is "Beyond Category", but by the 1950s he had transformed himself from the "Boy Singer" into a man every man wanted to be, and every woman wanted.
As Dino's solo career grew, he and Sinatra became close, often performing in Vegas at the same time. This led to "The Summit", where legendary performaces were held at the Sands Hotel.
