"There are images of the famed Rat Pack summit at the Sands Hotel. But I'd never seen colour photos of the Rat Pack summit before. And again, it's something I'm very familiar with but to see it in that light is completely new. And there are hundreds of images like that in this book. Picture the iconic image and then imagine all the outtakes from that day's photo shoot. The iconic image, the five fellas under the marquee of the Sands which is the cover of my book, Rat Pack Confidential, has gone uncredited for 50 years. I finally figured out who shot it. Sammy's tie being undone was the giveaway. At the University of Southern California, they have the actual production files for every day of the shoot. So I went down there and the photographer for that day turned out to be a guy named Floyd McCarty. This guy worked for Warner Brother for like 50 years and he was sort of the house shooter for film productions. You know that very famous photo of James Dean from the set of Rebel Without A Cause where he's wearing the red jacket and looking to the side? That's a Floyd McCarty shot. He was on the set of Cleopatra... Name ten of your favourite films, this guy shot three of them. In this book for the first time McCarty is getting his due credit. [The Sands shot] is truly one of the iconic images of the century and he never got credit for it. Not even from the studio. He's long gone but he's got some measure of recompense."
