Mystery | Thriller
Las Vegas, 1960.
Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop,
and Peter Lawford are the Kings of Cool---the Rat Pack.
Oceanâ€™s 11 is their first movie together and they have
taken Sin City by storm---filming during the day and
cavorting onstage at the Sands Casino at night. Itâ€™s clear
not everyone is charmed, however, when Dean begins
receiving anonymous threatening letters.
Eddie Gianelli, also called Eddie G., is a pit boss at the
Sands. After twelve years, heâ€™s got the whole town wired.
But heâ€™s still surprised when Joey Bishop drops by his
table and invites him to meet with Frank in the Rat Packâ€™s
private steam room. Frank asks Eddie to find out whoâ€™s been
sending the threats, as a favor to him and Dean.
Eddie wants to politely decline, but caught between his
boss, Jack Entratterâ€™s, not-so-subtle nudging and being
utterly starstruck by Dino, he agrees to look into it. He
gets help from his P.I. best friend and a Jewish torpedo
from Brooklyn. A few dead bodies and bruised ribs later,
he remembers why he was reluctant. In a city of gamblers,
Eddie has become the highest roller of all. The game is
murder, and the stakes just may be his own life.
