Dean Martin is one of my favorite actors, i don't think he ever got the recognition for being a great actor. Everyone remembers him teamed with Jerry Lewis as the straight man ( a job that's pretty hard to do, anchoring a loose cannon like Mr. Lewis ) and when they broke up all Hollywood gossips predicted doom for his career. But he got a chance and had great friends, to act. He was one of the best crooners of all time ( basing his crooning style on the Mills Brothers and not Bing Crosby as many believe )and for an Italian kid from Ohio he made a pretty decent Cowboy star. Watch a Dino movie soon, you'll enjoy it, i recommend Rio Bravo, Ocean's 11 and the Matt Helm films.
I salute Dino with a few random screen caps.
