Sinatra, Martin, Davis, Lawford, and the rest of the Rat Pack do that Ring-a-Ding-Ding thing in their neon stomping ground ? Las Vegas. The Pack plays a group of ex-soldiers who plan to knock off the strip's biggest casinos on New Year's Eve. Most interesting as social anthropology of a lost culture circa early '60s.

Facts about

Shirley MacLaine's tipsy uncredited cameo was ad-libbed by the actress, for which she reportedly received a brand new car from Warner Bros. as compensation. Her line, "I'm so drunk I don't think I could lie down without holding on," was a rehash of a classic Dean Martin line.
The ritzy Beverly Hills home of Spyros Acebos (Akim Tamiroff) actually belonged to Hollywood agent Kurt Frings, husband of then screenwriter Ketti Frings.
The entire Ocean's Eleven does not all appear at the end as previously stated, since they were leaving Tony Bergdorf's (Richard Conte) funeral who was one of the eleven. There are however at least two scenes with all of the group together, at Spyros Acebos (Akim Tamiroff) house and at the Bowling Alley.
