The Rat Pack of the sixties, most associated with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford, also had some female members, who were sometimes referred to as Rat Pack mascots. They included Marilyn Monroe, Shirley MacLaine, Angie Dickinson and Juliet Prowse. Actress Janet Leigh also had an association with the group. And of course, the original group of the fifties which centered around Humphrey Bogart, included singer Judy Garland, and Bogart’s wife Lauren Bacall, who is believed to have coined the name.
To this day, Frank, Dean, Sammy and company’s stage show is inspiration for groups like this Rat Pack Tribute.
