"The Rat Pack: Live And Swingin'" features Frank, Sammy and Dean in prime form, dazzling the audience with their dynamic chemistry, comic camaraderie and unforgettable melodies. The live black-tie benefit performance – the first and only time cameras ever fully captured a proper "Rat Pack Summit" – was taped on Father's Day, June 20, 1965 at the Kiel Opera House in St. Louis. Emceed by Johnny Carson, this beautifully restored musical time capsule includes sets by Frank, Sammy and Dean and a rousing final performance of “Birth of the Blues.”
