oceans11apr06On this day in 1960, WARNER BROTHERS released OCEAN’S ELEVEN. Directed by LEWIS MILESTONE, this film existed for the sole reason of giving FRANK SINATRA and his drinking buddies something to do…and audiences were all the better for it. Famous for the hi-jinks that went on off-camera as much for those that went on in front of it, SINATRA, DEAN MARTIN, SAMMY DAVIS JR., PETER LAWFORD and JOEY BISHOP will always be known as THE RAT PACK that starred in OCEAN’S ELEVEN.
