Description: In this movie, Gangland Chicago ("My Kind of Town") becomes Sherwood Forest, and the Rat Pack are the Merry Men in this winning musical re-imagining of Robin Hood. As part of The Movies of Frank Sinatra series, the film is a must-see if just for Sammy Davis, Jr.'s tap-dancing through a gang war to "Bang, Bang." Sinatra earns his title as the Prince of Thieves when his gangster's honor leads him to donate the payment for a hit he didn't commit to an orphanage.
