Synopses
The Rat Pack (Disc 1 of 2) (1999)
This documentary, the first of a four-part series produced for the A&E cable network, explores the dawning days of the careers of the men who would make up one of the greatest entertainment phenomena of the 1950s and '60s, "The Rat Pack." Frank Sinatra rises from a Hoboken saloon singer to be the idol of bobby-soxers across America, Dean Martin goes from being just another crooner to finding major stardom with comic Jerry Lewis, Peter Lawford is discovered while pumping gas and becomes a matinee idol, and Sammy Davis Jr., a child of vaudeville, begins his rise to fame, which is hampered by the racism of the entertainment industry. Includes interviews with Jerry Lewis, Janet Leigh, Tony Curtis, and Pat Cooper; narrated by Danny Aiello. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

The Rat Pack (Disc 2 of 2) (1999)
Produced for the A&E cable network, this third installment in their four-part "Rat Pack" series looks at the informal partnership between legendary entertainers Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop as it came to its peak in 1960. That year, Sinatra and Martin were confirmed as two of the biggest names in show business, while Davis, with Sinatra's help, gained well-deserved success as a top headliner in Las Vegas and the nightclub circuit, and Lawford found a new market for his talents performing as a song and dance man in Las Vegas. The four began dropping in on each other's shows, culminating in a fabled month-long engagement for the quartet at the Sands Hotel, where a fifth member was added to the group, comedian Joey Bishop. The group also made the definitive film document of the Rat Pack's zenith, Ocean's Eleven, not knowing that their greatest moment was soon to draw to a close. Tony Curtis, Angie Dickinson, and Pat Cooper share their memories of the Rat Pack in exclusive interviews; actor Danny Aiello narrates. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
