Ocean's 11 (1960) directed by Lewis Milestone, who also gave us All Quiet on the Western Front, Of Mice and Men, The Strange Love of Martha Ivers, and tons more. Starring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Peter Lawford, Angie Dickinson, and a boatload of familiar faces.
Ex-Army commandos* reunite under the oversight of a vaguely felonious crime boss to rob multiple Las Vegas casinos on New Year's Eve. The first half of the story is setting up and character interplay, the actual heist is over comparatively quickly. Stick around to the end.
Breezy, well-paced, Technicolor, and 2.39 : 1 aspect ratio, what better way to say, "Howdy, weekend"?
Picked out by the Missus; she thinks she remembered it from long ago, but still enjoyed it a great deal. She also googled the term "e-o-eleven" sung by Davis: it means a perfect dice game that ultimately flops. I never knew that: ties in perfectly with the movie.
* Did the US military use the term "commandos" during WW2? I thought the Army used "ranger" and the Marines used "raider." Worf? Lizzie? Fading Fast?
I normally associate commandos with the British, not the US. There was a commando group in the US Army Air Corps during the war, however, so others may have existed.
I think they meant it as a generic term in the movie. Or none of them wore undies.
