When Peter Lawford first approached Frank Sinatra about making Ocean’s 11, as the legend goes, Sinatra told him they should forget about the movie and just pull the heist off instead. Made at perhaps the absolute zenith of the Martini Machismo era they helped to create and define, the film had to be shot piecemeal around the collection of stars’ scheduled live performances — most notably Sinatra’s legendary run at The Sands, where his fellow Rat-Packers often joined him for what would eventually come to be known as The Summit. And in perhaps the ultimate meta-moment in screen history, as the film ends, Ocean’s crew moseys reflectively down a sidewalk with The Sands marquee visible behind them, emblazoned with its headlining act.
