Their story is profiled in the book "Rat Pack Confidential: Frank, Dean, Sammy, Peter, Joey and the last Great Showbiz Party" written by Shawn Levy (Doubleday, 1997).

The origin of the nickname came about when actress Lauren Bacall saw her husband Humphrey Bogart standing with Frank Sinatra and commented they looked like a "Rat Pack."

The HBO TV-Movie The Rat Pack (1998) starred Ray Liotta as Sinatra in the swinging Las Vegas days of the early 1960s. See also - "Ol' Blue Eyes"
