Dean-Paul Martin and Olivia Hussey

Shakespearean tragedies of a Hollywood teen star


She blew through her first marriage to Dean Martin's wild son Dino

Hussey's first husband Dino Martin amassed a disturbing collection of machine guns and Hussey was shocked when police raided their Beverly Hills home and arrested him for unlicensed firearms.

"Within 20 minutes Frank Sinatra was on the phone, saying, 'Don't worry, it'll all be OK. We're talking care of it.' He must have pulled a few strings because the next day Dino was released and the charges were dropped."

Despite the fact that the US record charts are dominated by Rock and Roll, crooner Dean Martin has the number one tune with his biggest hit, “Everybody Loves Somebody”. It made it to #11 in the UK. The song had been around since 1949 and had been previously recorded by several well known artists without success. When Martin’s version pushed The Beatles’ “A Hard Day’s Night” out of the top spot on the Billboard chart, he sent telegrams to Elvis and to Frank Sinatra saying “I did it! I knocked ’em out of first place!”

Dino sent a telegram to Elvis Presley that read, “If you can’t handle the Beatles, I’ll do it for you, pally.”

King of Cool Dean Martin Declares “Everybody Loves Somebody”

By Kaye Bassett Millar - July 28, 2016

In 1964, Dean Martin was finishing up recording his Dream with Dean album and had completed 11 songs. Albums always had 12 songs in the US, so Dean asked his conductor and piano player Ken Lane if he had something else for him. Ken said he had an old song he had written – “Everybody Loves Somebody.” Dean liked it and recorded it with just Ken, a bass player, a guitar and drums. The reaction to the cut on the album was so great that Dean went back into the studio and re-recorded it for a single release with a full orchestra and background singers. It was such a hit that it knocked “A Hard Day’s Night” out of its #1 spot on the charts. It became Dean’s theme song for his TV show the next year in 1965. The other version is still available on compilation albums.

When this knocked A Hard Day’s Night off the top of the US charts, Dino sent a telegram to Elvis Presley that read, “If you can’t handle the Beatles, I’ll do it for you, pally.”

“Everybody Loves Somebody”

Everybody loves somebody sometime
Everybody falls in love somehow
Something in your kiss just told me
That sometime is nowEverybody finds somebody someplace
There’s no telling where love may appear
Something in my heart keeps saying
My someplace is here
If I had it in my power
I’d arrange for every girl to have your charms
Then every minute, every hour
Everybody would find what I found in your arms

Everybody loves somebody sometime
And though my dreams were overdue
Your love made it all worth waiting
For someone like you

If I had it in my power
I’d arrange for every girl to have your charms
Then every minute, every hour
Everybody would find what I found in your arms

Everybody loves somebody sometime
And though my dreams were overdue
Your love made it all worth waiting
For someone like you

Iconic crooner Dean Martin notched his sole No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hit with "Everybody Loves Somebody." The song proved that middle-of-the-road music could still reign after Beatlemania had begun changing the course of pop earlier that year. "Everybody," in fact, dethroned the Fab Four's fifth No. 1, "A Hard Day's Night."

Book review of Olivia Hussey's The Girl on The Balcony; co-author Alexander Martin, the grandson of Dean Martin

by Always On Watch

(Note 1: all citations from the hardcover edition, released on July 31, 2018)

(Note 2: our Dino is referred to throughout as Dean Sr. or Dean because that's the way that the authors referred to our Dino; in this review, the word Dino refers to Dean Paul Martin, the name he took after his first divorce)

Olivia Hussey was catapulted to fame at the age of 17 when she starred in the award winning film film Romeo and Juliet (1968, directed by Franco Zefirelli).  To this day, many consider this film the definitive version of that particular Shakespearean tragedy.

In the course of becoming a Hollywood film star, Olivia Hussey met and married Dino, Jr., who, thanks to his father's fame and connections, moved in star-studded circles.  The marriage lasted from 1971-1978 and produced one child: the coauthor of this book, Alexander Martin.

What a happy day was the wedding day of the couple Dino, Jr., and Olivia Hussey!

Dean Martin, wearing his smile that lights up the world

Beginning with the chapter entitled “So I Became a Movie Star,” pages 96-100, and ending with the chapter entitled “Guns,” pages 154-162, fans of Dean Sr. will find much new information about  him in this book.  For example, Olivia Hussey shares this information about Dean Sr.'s separation from Jeanne, his wife of some 24 years:

“...I found myself heading to 601 Mountain Drive and a meeting with Dino's mother, Jeanne Martin.  Dino's father no longer lived there.  Some time before, Dean had apparently packed a small suitcase and, with his usual laconic charm, quipped something to the effect of 'Well, that's about enough for me' and left."
In the course of perusing this book, readers will see just how much Olivia Hussey loved and respected both her mother-in-law and father-in-law.  They not only welcomed her into the family upon her wedding to Dino Jr.; they remained friends even after Dino Jr. and Olivia divorced.  And the senior Martins' grandson Alexander Martin spent much of his youth with Grandmother Jeanne as Olivia Hussey pursued her acting career.

The two commentaries below are just two of the gems in this book, which every Dean Martin fan should read:

“[Dean Sr.] had the gift that only the extraordinarily talented had: He saw the world a little differently than the rest of us.  Over the years, I'd catch him looking or listening to something and see a double-take, a quick reexamination.  I'd see him connect that thing with something else.  I wouldn't have the foggiest idea what he saw or heard or what it made him think of – but then, I'd think, that's one reason I'm not Dean Martin” (132).


“I'll always remember the cadence of his voice.  It made me think of saloon doors swinging.  That was Dean Martin” (132).
