- If they were both sufficiently long, I would agree with you. As it stands, I see little point. Just my £0.02.

I agree. These two movies should be split into two separate articles. So who will make this? If nobody, then I will make it. --ThomasK 18:37, Dec 15, 2004 (UTC)
I've reverted a set of edits about the 1960 movie. The edits removed the information that the heist occurred on New Year's Eve, and added a reference to an affair between the Sinatra and Davis characters. I haven't seen the movie but I've never heard of any other reference to this, so it smells fishy. Can anyone verify it? JamesMLane 16:56, 20 May 2005 (UTC)
Shouldn't the names of the articles be Ocean's Eleven (referring to the 2001 film) and Ocean's 11 (referring to this film, which has posters with the numerals)? --AEMoreira042281 02:24, 11 May 2007 (UTC)
What does "He wants the heist to have his own stake" mean?
Not having seen the movie, my guess is that the author intended to convey that the Lawford character wants to sabotage his mother's upcoming wedding to the Cesar Romero character. Am I right? If not, could someone set me straight? Thanks. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gwross (talk • contribs) 21:10, 6 February 2007 (UTC).
This article seems quite weighed against the movie. Also the author has done nothing to introduce the characters, one does not learn who plays the main character Ocean is played by untill a brief reference half way through the text. It is very poorly set out with few headins, just one long set of prose. I am quite sure someone could do a better job of this article. Thomas Roberts 9 May 2007
• Peter Lawford's character is dependent on his monther for money. The author is saying that Lawford's character is going along with the heist in order to get his own money and not have to request it from his mother. C Pearce, 05/27/07
Fair use rationale for Image:Ocean'sEleven(1960)Poster.jpeg
Image:Ocean'sEleven(1960)Poster.jpeg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

The plot summary, at nearly 1300 words, was overlong and had been marked as such. I have replaced it with a shorter version from an older revision . --Tony Sidaway 00:53, 24 January 2008 (UTC) The plot summary details the ending of the movie. This is not acceptable and this sentence should be deleted. should be deleted. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 04:04, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
I removed "Featured on the list at No. 7 was the James Bond movie, Diamonds are Forever, a film that references the climax of Ocean's 11 by hiding in a coffin about to be cremated, a stash of stolen diamonds." from under the heading "popular culture" because it is untrue. James bond is in the coffin, about to be cremated, and the diamonds are hidden else ware. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 03:01, 6 May 2008 (UTC)
Error in Movie Section
Someone put some kind of weird section called "Error in Movie" That mentions some stupid mistake that was made in dialougue, where a timer was set for 1:38 (98 seconds) but instead a character says that it is set for "138 seconds." Not really a huge enough error to garner it's own section, and it's terribly worded to boot. Also, it seems they made it out of a reception section, as under the Error headline, it has it listed as one of the best heist movies of all time.
So what I'm gonna do is delete all of the info about the mistake, rename the section "Reception" and leave it at that. If anyone wants to undo this, or salvage that error section, that's fine. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 23:53, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
This quote: "During the crime film's iconic closing shot, the Sands marquee can be seen in the background featuring the performers' names." This is not a crime-film, this is a caper-film/heist-film. That's not the same thing as a crime film. IGG8998 —Preceding undated comment added 15:24, 25 September 2010 (UTC).
Cameo appearances and In popular culture
== Cameo appearances ==
Shirley MacLaine took a break from filming The Apartment to shoot a scene with Dean Martin as a tipsy woman who interrupts him during the heist. George Raft played a casino owner and Red Skelton appeared as himself. It has been rumored that Milton Berle, Tony Curtis, Judy Garland, and Jackie Gleason were also offered cameo roles, but did not appear. Richard Boone makes a cameo by voice only as the minister delivering the eulogy near the end of the film. An unidentified actor is briefly seen at a distance mouthing his words.
In popular culture
Often referenced over the years, Ocean's Eleven has been hailed as the definitive outing for The Rat Pack, as well as one of their strongest and most popular films.
The iconic image of the gang was emulated by Quentin Tarantino in Reservoir Dogs (1992) while a remake starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon signalled the start of a lucrative franchise. Two sequels to the remake were made, Ocean's Twelve in 2004 and Ocean's Thirteen in 2007.
The last of these sequels references Sinatra, the original Ocean, in featuring one of his songs, "This Town". One character, Reuben Tishkoff, even makes a comment to the movie's main antagonist regarding a code of conduct between men who "shook Sinatra's hand."
SCTV created its own parody, "Maudlin's Eleven."The plot of the Deep Space Nine episode "Badda-Bing Badda-Bang" closely resembles that of the film.
this image shows the whole gang. it appears to be a production photo, or publicity photo. I dont know if we need more than one image here, and fair use may say we dont. its nice to have the whole gang in it.(mercurywoodrose)126.96.36.199 (talk) 06:56, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
