Ocean's Eleven

Heavily promoted back in 1960 as the best robbery film ever it was pretty much received as an excuse for Frank Sinatra to bring his Rat Packers to Vegas for a good time. History is kind to it in a nostalgic way. The acting is not any of their best though Shirley MacLaine has one of the best cameos ever. Great title credits and a now vintage score make this one for those who long for those days long gone and though the film is not the greatest it does have one hell of a classy ending scene. Studios managed to tack a Christmas theme to the beginning hence why it is usually in rotation at this time of year.
