This documentary, the first of a four-part series produced for the A&E cable network, explores the dawning days of the careers of the men who would make up one of the greatest entertainment phenomena of the 1950s and '60s, "The Rat Pack." Frank Sinatra rises from a Hoboken saloon singer to be the idol of bobby-soxers across America, Dean Martin goes from being just another crooner to finding major stardom with comic Jerry Lewis, Peter Lawford is discovered while pumping gas and becomes a matinee idol, and Sammy Davis Jr., a child of vaudeville, begins his rise to fame, which is hampered by the racism of the entertainment industry. Includes interviews with Jerry Lewis, Janet Leigh, Tony Curtis, and Pat Cooper; narrated by Danny Aiello. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
