What’s better than fame, dapper suits, cigars and liquor? Nothing, if you’re the Rat Pack.
The intimate, elite Hollywood clan known as the Rat Pack (which got its name after Humphrey Bogart’s wife, actress Lauren Bacall, observed that her husband and his group looked like a pack of rats after a night out in Las Vegas) is now more accessible than ever before.
According to the Daily Mail, the ‘boisterous antics’ of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, Peter Lawford, Joey Bishop and others caught on camera has been previously unavailable to the public. However, when a photographic agent discovered the negatives of the group in a cardboard box recently, he decided to share them with the masses in a limited edition book by Reel Art Press.
