The Attack on Pearl Harbor, 71 years ago today.

"There were images from Peter Lawford's beach house from 1960 with Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, Peter Lawford, Patricia Kennedy Lawford and May Britt, Sammy Davis Jr's wife. They're all sitting around in beachwear, someone's got a Polaroid camera and they're all playing with it. Lawford's beach house is part of Rat Pack lore because that's where the Kennedys and the Rat Pack partied. But to see Marilyn Monroe among them in a picture at that time is just shocking."
