Ocean's 11Director: Lewis Milestone, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr.
During a Los Angeles Christmas, a group of 82nd Airborne vets assembles under the leadership of gamblin' man Danny Ocean (Frank Sinatra) to rip off five Las Vegas casinos just after the stroke of midnight on New Year's Day. Playboy Jimmy Foster (Peter Lawford) joins in the scheme because he's sick of needing his oft-married mother's money, especially now that she's about to wed Duke Santos (Cesar Romero), a self-made man with all sorts of underworld ties. After he receives the news that he could die at any time, newly released convict Anthony Bergdorf (Richard Conte) reluctantly agrees to participate so he can leave some money to his estranged wife and young son. Ocean's own wife, Beatrice (Angie Dickinson), doesn't think much of her husband's promise of a big score to come, but her quiet protests don't dissuade him. With Las Vegas garbage man and fellow vet Josh Howard (Sammy Davis Jr.) and several casino employees among their number, the titular band of thieves have just a few days to get ready for their caper. When Duke Santos, Jimmy's mother, and one of Ocean's discarded paramours all show up in Sin City at the same time as the veterans, the crew's perfect plans face some serious hurdles.

This is a classic!! Plenty of excitement...and it just keeps getting better. No one could play the role of 'Danny Ocean' any better than Sinatra--no one. And that includes George Clooney.
great film. the pack is excellent. clooney could never fill sinatra's shoes.
The original Ocean's 11 is one of my favorite movies! the remake was okay but the original is a lot better! The whole cast is superb but especially, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Peter Lawford and Sammy Davis Jr!
this is one of my favorite movies! great fun and lots of excitement! this movie is a new year's eve tradition at our house! lots of great location shots and some unexpected cameo appearances by other stars of that time!
A definite must own! with that wacky twist we all need this film!!
A classic rat pack movie with a great plot.
The remake of Ocean's 11 with George Clooney has always entertained me but it was merely that, entertaining. Overall I didn't care much for the movie so when I watched the original Ocean's with the rat pack I was blown away. The chemistry between the characters is amazing and is something Clooney and Pitt simply could not mime. This is a must see and unforgettable movie with one of the best endings I have ever witnessed.
