The Rat Pack In Robin & The 7 Hoods

This picture comes courtesy of my pallie Sue.

I love Robin and the 7 Hoods. It doesn't get much better than the Rat Pack and Bing Crosby. For those that have never seen this movie, it's basically the story of Robin Hood set in Chicago during the Prohibition era. Here's a clip of Sammy singing Bang Bang. He's singing, dancing & shooting. I told you before he's an all around great entertainer. :-)

Hey pallie DMP. Thanks for the comments. Glad you liked this picture. I thought it was really cool. I'm a big fan of this movie. I always liked movies like this anyway. The Rat Pack make this one out of sight. Cheers!

I've actually never seen this movie, but it sounds great! I have a feeling it would be an awesome one to watch with my family :)

Keith said...

Hey Allison. Thanks for the comments. Great hearing from you. Yes, this would be a great movie to watch with your family. It was my grandmother who introduced me to the Rat Pack. This is a really cool movie. Cheers!

Hi Keith, thx for checking out my blog the other day. Glad you liked what you saw.

I'm really digging this blog, too...I'm a big fan of The Rat Pack, but I'm unapologetically biased toward Sammy. Thx for putting up this clip. He really was an all-around great entertainer. I just wish his legacy got more recognition and respect from the mainstream world.

I remember catching this on TV one late night. I was up till four in the morning riveted to my chair. Great movie!

Keith said...

Hey FilmFather. Thanks so much for the comments. It was nice hearing from you. You are welcome about me checking out your blog. I really like your blog. I definitely plan to visit it some more.

I'm glad you enjoy my blog as well. Thanks. I love Sammy. He's actually my second favorite Rat Packer after Dean Martin. He's definitely a great all-around entertainer. He could do it all. I agree that he should get more recognition and respect than he gets. He so deserves that.

I hope you will continue to check out my blog. Please feel free to leave comments on any posts you like. I love hearing from people. Thanks again. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Erma. Thanks for the comments. I'm glad you've had a chance to see this movie and that you enjoyed it. It is a really cool flick. Cheers!

Not the best movie but you can tell they had fun and it contains some great songs like "my kind of town" one of frank's signature hits. I love his medley "style" with Dino and Bing.

Keith said...

Hey Mel. Thanks for the comments. I've got a video of Frank, Dino & Bing that I plan to post at some point. It does have some good tunes in it, whether one likes the movie itself or not.

Keith said...

Hey Autumn. Thanks great. I'm glad you are listening to them and enjoying their music.
