The Original Rat Pack

The name “The Rat Pack” was first used to refer to a group of friends in New York. According to one version, the group’s original “Den Mother,” Lauren Bacall, after seeing her husband, Humphrey Bogart and his friends return from a night in Las Vegas, said words to the effect of "You look like a goddamn rat pack."

According to Stephen Bogart, the original members of the Rat Pack were: Frank Sinatra (pack master), Judy Garland (first vice-president), Lauren Bacall (den mother), Sid Luft (cage master), Humphrey Bogart (rat in charge of public relations), David Niven, Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, George Cukor, Cary Grant, Rex Harrison, and Jimmy Van Heusen.

In his autobiography, David Niven confirms that the Rat Pack originally included him but not Sammy Davis, Jr. nor Dean Martin.

I miss audrey, I miss everyone, why did they go before I ever got a chance to tell them how important they were.

“Jimmy was working with some of the most glamorous women in the world. My constant fear I suppose was that he would find them more attractive than me and have an affair with one of them. A lot of men in Hollywood became involved with their leading ladies. Jimmy was a red-blooded American male so naturally I thought it could happen to him, too. I was convinced it was only a matter of time before the telephone would ring and it would be James telling me that he had to work late at the studio or that he would be out playing poker with the boys. Well, no such call ever came. And I can honestly say that in all the years of our marriage Jimmy never once gave me cause for anxiety or jealousy. The more beautiful and glamorous his leading lady was, the more attention he paid to me. I asked him once why he did that, and he said, ‘Because I want you to never feel anything less than the most special thing in my life”.
