Dean Martin

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.

  1. Hey pallie, dem are some great pixs of our Dino and likes I so agree with you that durin' his life our Dino never got the recognition that he so richly deserves...he was robbed of even an oscar nom for "Rio Bravo." Thanks for doin' your part to lift up the name and share the glory of our Dino!
