Ocean’s 11 (1960)

Don’t be a fool, choose old school.

The George Clooney-led remake is a smooth piece of filmmaking, sure, but it still can’t beat the Rat Pack doing what they do best in swingin’ Sin City.

Frank Sinatra is the man with the plan, one Danny Ocean, and from there, it’s a roll-call of Vegas heavy hitters moving out to rob five casinos on New Year’s Eve.

Filled with glitz, glamour, a radiant Angie Dickinson, a zippy Saul Bass-designed animated opening sequence, and a knockout final twist, it scores.

Keep your remakes. I want the original ring a ding ding.
