The Heist of All Time
I remember back in the day when the commercials were out for Ocean’s Eleven it was described as the heist of all time. It wasn’t exactly that, but there is a spirit of camaraderie that is present through out the film.
Frank Sinatra had signed a picture deal with Warner Brothers and was beginning a long term commitment to the Sands in Las Vegas. What better way than to combine everything at once. A film on location in Las Vegas.
So Frank got his pallies together and they filmed Ocean’s Eleven in between shows at the Sands. They also managed to get into another film, several of the principal players in Ocean’s Eleven did guest shots in Pepe while at the Sands.
Ocean’s Eleven has a lighthearted insouciance about it, a group of former Airborne Rangers get together in Las Vegas for a heist of the big casinos carried on with military precision. Why waste all that good airborne training now that they’re civilians.
Sinatra doesn’t sing in this, I can’t imagine why he didn’t give himself a song here, but Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr. did sing two numbers suited to their talents.
Ocean’s Eleven marked the first time that Richard Conte worked in a Sinatra film. He became a Sinatra retainer in his later years, appearing in several Sinatra films. They parted when Conte appeared in The Godfather against Frank’s wishes.
After Ocean’s Eleven came Sergeants Three with the main cast members appearing again. After that the Rat Pack broke up with these guys going their own way, though many of them did have joint projects together over the years. The quality of the films went down hill, except for Robin and the Seven Hoods. That was a musical and not something to be done in your spare time.
The remake of Ocean’s Eleven that George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and several other name players of today did was a far more serious film. Good in its own way, but just not the same.
A classic best left in the 60s
I know it’s unfair to judge a historical piece from a modern perspective, but I can’t help but throw in some of my own personal bias against this Dino quote: “(If I were elected in public office) I’d repeal the 14th and the 20th; take the vote away from women and make them slaves.” That quote was enough to ruin my illusions of the movie. It was hard to believe that even in the 60s it was OK for men to say stuff like this in the mainstream. *Sigh*
Another thing that sucked was the end — how is it that after all they went through, they didn’t get to keep their loot? Once again, I suspect they had to appeal to the (unfortunate) white and self-righteous general public that would’ve just been up in arms about the thieves getting away with their crimes at the end. It just wasn’t satisfying to watch all of these cool cats walk away from Vegas empty-handed. Again, I suppose at the time this film was made, such ending would never have been accepted. (But still!)
However, it’s a fun movie and nothing takes away the fact that this is was the “IT” movie – super cool, suave and Rat-Packed! Dino and Sammy Davis, Jr. make this film so smooth with their numbers. It was truly awesome to watch them perform. I wouldn’t call it a musical, however, because their numbers were brief and scattered, rather than often and organized. I think that’s what made it fun: you never know when they’re going to belt it out for the audience.
This is what makes me think that this movie was made primarily to get the Rat Pack together in a film. It was fun to watch all of these debonair gents strut down the Vegas Strip on New Year’s Eve, but if watched for anything other than this angle, you may be slightly disappointed. Good thing I’m something of a Dino fan.
