Who Is Your Favorite Member Of The Rat Pack?

Here's a really cool picture of the Rat Pack. These hip cats are so stylish. They look to be having a good time chatting with each other, while enjoying some drinks and cigarettes. I so wish I could go back to this era.

I've been wanting to do a poll for some time now to find out who is everybody's favorite member of the Rat Pack. I decided to do a poll now. It's at the upper right corner of the blog. You can only select one person. I'm running this poll for a week. I'll then reveal the winner. Please cast your vote for your favorite member of the Rat Pack.

For those who aren't sure they know all the Rat Packers, I'll list them by order in the picture above. From left to right is Peter Lawford, Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, Joey Bishop & Dean Martin.

Dino is my favorite. The coolest cat on earth. :)

Oooh that is a tough call. I mean, obviously Dean for me but I do love the other guys a lot, I think they all brought something to the pack. Joey Bishop is so over looked but he was a perfect straight man. Nice poll!

Maria Jensen said...

DEAN MARTIN <3

Sorry for big letters :P I got a little excited :O

DEAN MARTIN!!!

Leah said...

My dad adores Frank Sinatra, we always hear his music at my dad's house and he can sing like Sinatra as well. I guess you know who I voted for. :-)

janettaylor said...

I say YAY! :-)

Protege said...

Great picture! Yes, I wish I would have lived in that time, when chivalry still existed.;)
My favorite; Dean Martin. Without a doubt.;))

Surinami said...

Great picture !!!
:):):)

Bruce Coltin said...

Mine has to be the Chairman of the Board.

Maggi said...

Oh Lawford...Is he anyone's favorite? Pity vote perhaps? Of course Sinatra being Sinatra...but then there's Sammy...hmmmmm....

Nancy Sinatra Fan said...

This is a great idea. I did cast a vote. It will be interesting to see if Dean wins this.

Keith said...

Hey Drake. I totally agree with ya!

Keith said...

Hey Steph. Thanks for commenting. Oh yeah. I love all the guys. They each have something that they contributed to the gang. I had thought to let people pick more than one. I decided to just keep it at one. I do think Joey gets overlooked a lot.

Keith said...

Hey Maria. No problem. That happens when we talk about Dino.

Keith said...

Thanks Gingey.

Keith said...

Hey Leah. Thanks for commenting and voting. Yeah, I think I've figured out who you voted for. He is awesome. There's nobody quite like Sinatra.

Keith said...

Thanks Janet.

Keith said...

Hey Protege. Thanks for commenting. I would love to have lived in that era. Glad to see your favorite is Dean Martin.

Keith said...

Thanks Surinami.

Keith said...

Hey Maggi. Thanks for commenting. I'm figuring that this is mostly going to be a contest between Dean and Frank. Sammy will get some votes. I doubt that poor Peter and Joey will get much of any.

Keith said...

Hey Bruce. Thanks for voting. Sinatra is definitely the Chairman.

JFK Jean said...

Grrr!! Decisions, decisions.....I want to say Frank but I gotta go with Sammy.....

*Note than in 1998, this wouldn't have been my answer*

Keith said...

Hey Phoebe. I had wondered if you would vote for Frankie or Dino.

Keith said...

Hey JFK. Thanks for commenting. If I had voted for Dino, it would have been Sammy. He's my second favorite of the guys. I do like them all. Sinatra is awesome.

Wolf Boy said...

Great idea. Now comes the hard part of deciding on my vote.

JamiSings said...

*chants* Sammy! Sammy! Sammy!

He could sing, he could dance, he could do impressions, He could do some of the neatest gun tricks.

Frank might've been the chairman, but Sammy RULES!

Keith said...

Hey Wolf. Good luck with choosing.

Keith said...

Hey Jami. Thanks. I love Sammy. While Dino is my favorite member, Sammy is definitely my second favorite. He's so ultra cool.

lancelonie said...

I sometimes wish I could go back to that era, where the air is fresh! :) The rat pack sure looks cool. :)

Keith said...

Hey Lance. Thanks for commenting. I know what you mean. I wish so much I could go back then. Cheers!

Erika said...

Old Blue Eyes for me. :)

Keith said...

Thanks Erika.

dapper kid said...

As much as I want to say Frank or Dino, it's got to be Sammy! Hope you're having a wonderful day.

Keith said...

Hey Dapper. Thanks. I love Sammy. If I wasn't voting for Dean, I would vote for Sammy.

Kim@ The Girl Can't Help It said...

Dean is my favorite, and not because I'm trying to earn suck-up points!

Much to the shock (and disgust) of many I know, I prefer his music over Sinatra's, (who would be my 2nd choice anyway!).

Keith said...

Hey Kim. Thanks. Nothing wrong with trying to earn suck up points. lol

Most of the people I know prefer Sinatra. They can't understand why I'm a bigger fan of Dino.

Jim @ CoolStuffForDads.com said...

I will place my vote ... will be interested to see who "wins". Cool picture.

Elizabeth Marie said...

Sammy!

Terence Sambo said...

lovely images :o]

clarewbrown said...

hmmm def. a tie between Sammy Davis or Dean Martin... ugh I dunno Sinatra is pretty freaking awesome too! Shoot, I dunno Keith, this is hard!

Catcher Block said...

Ooooo this is tough. My heart says Dino, but for my health I should probably say The Chairman. (I don't want to get on his bad side.)

Ela said...

Tough to say, I love ol' blue eyes and Sammy Davis Jr. :)

Keith said...

Hey Jim. Thanks. I'm interested to see who will win in the end myself.

Keith said...

Thanks Liz and Terence. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Clare. LOL I hope you did end up voting. Sorry it was so hard. Dean is my top choice. If I had set it up to allow for two selections, my other would have been Sammy. I do love Frank though.

Keith said...

Hey Catcher. Thanks for commenting. It was great hearing from you. I hope you did cast your vote for one of these cool cats. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Ela. Thanks. I hope you did end up deciding who to vote for.

Kelly Gannon said...

Dean Martin for sure Keith....but Sinatra is the coolest when it comes to his acting roles.

Keith said...

Hey Kelly. Thanks. Sinatra was always a good actor.

Jessica Cangiano said...

So hard to pick, I almost feel like being asked to select a favourite relative :D After debating between Frank and Dean, adore Dean as I do, took the plunge and selected Frank for the poll. There's just something about Ol' Blue Eye's voice that does it for me every time :)


Wishing you a fantastic day!
♥ Jessica

Keith said...

Hey Jessica. Thanks. I'm glad you voted. Frank is awesome. It is hard to pick just one of these guys. There are all such cool cats. Thanks for voting.

Glen said...

Dino, of course

AutumnJones said...

I dont know.. Umm, Sinatra, Dean, Sammy.. Frank Sinatra!!!

Keith said...

Thanks Glen.

Keith said...

Hey Autumn. Thanks. Hope you did vote in the poll.

Tonygirl said...

FRANK SINATRA! BUT THATS NO SURPRISE EH KEITH? :)

Keith said...

Hey Mel. Definitely no surprise at all.
