The RAT PACK

10 RAT PACK Facts
1. The Rat Pack was a term used to describe a group of musicians and actors in the 1950s and '60s who embodied the term "cool." Famously consisting of big names like Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford, the A-List group took Hollywood by storm.
2. The name "Rat Pack" was not actually a complimentary term. The phrase's origin comes from a moment when iconic movie star Humphrey Bogart came home from Las Vegas with his hard-partying group of friends. Bogart's wife, actress Lauren Bacall, allegedly came downstairs and scolded the group, claiming they looked "like a goddamn rat pack." The catchphrase quickly caught on.
BOGEY & BACALL
Humprhrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall actually started The RAT PACK,

One day, as Bogey was and the above friends were hanging aroud, drinking at
the Bogart's Hombly Hills home, Larent Bacall took a look at them, and saide,
"you look like a Pack of Rats," and it turned into The Rat pack and the name stuck,
and after Bogart died and as Frank Sinatra an original Bogart Rat Pack member and
his friends: Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr., performed and hungout together
in Las Vegas, the press attached The Rat Pack name to this new group
The Rat Pack, the name stuck and the rest of course is history, and Las Vegas and Hollywood Legend.
