 Oh well, pals...such is life.
Losin' loved ones just comes with the territory.

So...all that bein' said...I wanted a VERY special tune & vid for this week's Serenade.
A combo that will capture all the love & happiness that Dean & Jeanne & their family shared.

Now pallies...I can't take ANY credit for this one. I simply mentioned what I was thinkin' to a very close friend...a TRUE Dino-disciple...& the PER FEC TO jam was exclaimed. "Little Green Apples".
My friend knew EXACTLY what I meant.
 This song & vid just SO SO completely capture the love...compassion...& TRUE heart-felt sentiment between Dean & his Jeanne.
You can see it in their eyes, my friends.
She TRULY loved her guy.
The beauty in Jeanne...to me...was how she just let Dino be Dino.
She accepted him for who & how he was...like a REAL woman.
I'm sure this wasn't always easy, pals.

Be warned, though...it's a REAL tearjerker.

And I wake up in the morning
With my hair down in my eyes and she says hi
And I stumble to the breakfast table
While the kids are gonna to school goodbye
She reaches out and takes my hand
And squeezes it and says how you feeling hon
And I look across at smiling lips
That warm my heart and see my morning sun

And if that's not lovin' me then all I've got to say
God didn't make little green apples
And it don't rain in Indianapolis in the summertime
There's no such thing as Doctor Suess
Disneyland or Mother Goose is no nursery rhyme
God didn't make little green apples
And it don't rain in Indianapolis in the summertime
And when myself is feelin' low
I think about her face aglow and ease my mind

Sometimes I call her up at home knowing she's busy
And ask if she could get away and meet me and grab a bite to eat
Then she drops what she's doin' and hurries down to meet me and I'm always late
But she sits waitin' patiently
And smiles when she first sees me cause she's made that way

And if that ain't lovin' me then all I've got to say
God didn't make little green apples
It don't snow in Minneapolis when the winter comes
There's no such think as make believe
Puppy dogs and autumn leaves and BB guns
God didn't make little green apples
And it don't rain in Indianapolis in the summertime
When myself is feelin' low
I think about her face aglow and ease my mind
To ease my mind to ease my mind

Jeanne Martin, Model and Ex-Wife of Dean Martin, Dies at 89

 8/24/2016 by THR Staff



Dean and Jeanne Martin in 1957

Their youngest son, musician Ricci Martin, died earlier this month.

Jeanne Martin, a model and Orange Bowl queen who became the wife of singer and actor Dean Martin during the height of his fame, died Wednesday after a battle with cancer at her Beverly Hills home, her family announced. She was 89.

After marrying Dean Martin in 1949, the pair were one of Hollywood’s most photographed couples. Matriarch of their large family, she gave birth to three of Dean’s children while raising four more from his previous marriage. Their breakup in 1969 caused nearly as much distress to Martin’s fans as his professional split with partner Jerry Lewis had in 1956.

“Dean’s viewers knew he was a good husband and father and the booze-and-broads jokes were just part of the act,” wrote Lee Hale in the 2000 book Backstage at the Dean Martin Show, having served as musical director for the NBC program.

Born Dorothy Jean Biegger on March 27, 1927, in Coral Gables, Fla., she went by Jeanne when she began modeling in Miami. She was voted Orange Bowl queen in 1947. A year later, she came to the Beachcomber Club in Miami to see a New Year’s Eve show starring Martin and Lewis.

Jeanne maintained she had never heard of either entertainer until that night. She told author Nick Tosches for a 1992 biography of Dean Martin that upon seeing him on stage, “We locked eyes and I knew. We just fell madly in love.”

A week after Martin was granted a divorce from first wife Betty McDonald, he and 22-year-old Jeanne Biegger wed on Sept. 1, 1949, at the Beverly Hills home of Herman Hover, owner of famed Hollywood nightclub Ciro's. Lewis was best man.

She was “the best thing (next to me) that ever happened to Dean,” wrote Lewis in a 2005 memoir, Dean & Me.

For 20 years, they were viewed as one of Hollywood’s happiest couples until on Dec. 10, 1969, Jeanne issued a statement that they were parting ways.

The divorce wasn't finalized until 1972. Dean Martin was wed once more, to Catherine Hawn, a hair-salon receptionist, and legally adopted her daughter, Sasha, but that union ended in 1976. Jeanne Martin never remarried.

The pair became reacquainted in 1987 when one of their sons, actor Dean Paul Martin, was killed at 35 while piloting a military jet. Jeanne and Dean remained on good terms until his death from respiratory failure on Christmas Day 1995.

Eldest daughter Claudia Martin died of breast cancer in 2001.

Their youngest son, musician Ricci Martin, died on Aug. 3.

She is survived by son Craig Martin; daughters Gail Martin Downey, Deana Martin Griffeth and Gina Martin Romano; and 11 grandchildren. Funeral services will be private.

Today we will talk about Dean Martin (Dino di Paul Crocetti real name), as remembered as eternal. A great actor in his films always did himself. Dean Martin was a charismatic, mischievous, smart, womanizing, gulf, party animal, seductive man, player, of strong personality, and always conquered the most beautiful ladies.

He was born in Ohio in 1917. His family was of Italian and humble origin, where his father was a barber and his mother a housewife.

Great actor, showman, singer and humorist. I work in very different things in his teens as a laborer, gas station, and even boxer croupier, where he acquired some success with the pseudonym "Kid Crocetti".

He began performing as a singer in various night clubs where alternated songs with comic monologues, acting under the pseudonym "Dino Martini", and achieved great success with songs like "Volare", "Everybody loves somebody sometimes", "Bouna Sera" , "Sway" ...

A great actor, but above all an excellent singer swing.

In these environments he met another rookie comedian Jerry Lewis, both colleagues were inseparable and prepared a number that debuted in Atlantic City in 1946, achieving its chemical arouse enthusiasm among the audience. In 1946 they debuted in film with the title "My friend Irma," which was the beginning of a fruitful collaboration that produced great comedies like "My friend Irma Goes West" (1950), "Locos del aire" (1952) "What a pair of sea" (1952), "A legacy of fear" (1953), "crazy rider" (1953), "That pair of cut-throats" (1953), "king of the circus" (1954), " living his life "(1954)," You're Never Too Young "(1955)," Artists and models "(1955), and" Pardners "(1956).

The Adventures of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis

"Locos por Anita" (1956) was his last performance together, egos and another one ended with the fruitful couple to start their solo careers. Dean Martin never tired of repeating throughout his life that the two most important moments of his career was when he teamed up with Jerry Lewis and when separated from him.

There is even a comic that tells us his beautiful story:



The Martin and Lewis Story

Since the 50s he was part of a group of actors who called it "Rat Pack" consisting of: Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, Johnny Carson, Joey Bishop and himself. All participated in the famous movie "Ocean's Eleven" (1960) (which had a famous remake with George Clooney "Ocean Eleven"), shot in Las Vegas, which thanks to them today is the great city that is.

Rat Pack

This group agreed to establish a kind of secret society that was based on the following principles:
Hollywood sucks.
Never trust the boss.
Drink all you can.
She loves music as yourself.



Rat Pack Show in Las Vegas

Their motto chosen was "Never rat on a rat" (never delates a rat). Its members were to meddle in every possible pots television, theater, music, film and politics. The "Rat Pack" embodied the values ​​of a time when the world had not yet lost its innocence. Before Hollywood became a business and the stars had to live confined at home. They smiled, they were traveling were rich and handsome, did what they pleased, who would not want to be like them?

Because they lived for fun, as if tomorrow was going to be even better than today. Nape was another group like them, "were unrepeatable because the world is no longer as they wanted it to be."

In his shows out with a glass of wine or whiskie in hand, but very few people they knew that it was grape juice or iced tea.

En estos ambientes conoció a otro cómico novato Jerry Lewis, ambos se hicieron colegas inseparables y prepararon un número con el que debutaron en Atlantic City en 1946, consiguiendo con su química despertar el entusiasmo entre el público asistente. En 1946 debutaron en el cine con el título “Mi amiga Irma”, que fue el inicio de una fructífera colaboración que produjo grandes comedias como: “Mi amiga Irma va al oeste” (1950), “Locos del aire” (1952), “Vaya par de marinos”(1952), “Una herencia de miedo”(1953), “El jinete loco” (1953), “Que par de golfantes”(1953), “El rey del circo”(1954), “Viviendo su vida”(1954), “Un fresco en apuros”(1955), “Artistas y modelos” (1955), y “Juntos ante el peligro”(1956).


Una pareja irrepetible

Siempre repetían los mismos papeles, Dean Martin era el galán que estaba siempre persiguiendo faldas, y Jerry Lewis era el torpe que les metía en todos los líos. Fueron tan famosos que hasta se publicaron unos cómic con las andanzas de esta maravillosa pareja.


The Adventures of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis

“Locos por Anita” (1956) fue su última interpretación juntos, los egos de uno y de otro acabo con la fructífera pareja, para iniciar sus carreras en solitario. Dean Martin no se cansó de repetir a lo largo de toda su vida que los dos momentos más importantes de su carrera fueron cuando se asoció con Jerry Lewis y cuando se separó de él.

Hasta existe un cómic que nos cuenta su bonita historia:


The Martin and Lewis Story

Desde la década de los 50 formó parte de un grupo de actores al que denominaban “Rat pack” formado por: Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, Johnny Carson, Joey Bishop y él. Todos participaron en la famosa película “La cuadrilla de los once” (1960) (que tuvo un famoso remake con George Clooney “Ocean Eleven”), película rodada en Las Vegas, la cual  gracias a ellos es hoy en día la gran ciudad que es. Un grupo amante de la juega y la buena vida, y con contactos muy estrechos con la mafia. Se les veía con miembros del crimen organizado muy a menudo.


Rat Pack

Este grupo acordó fundar una especie de sociedad secreta que se basaba en los siguientes principios:
Hollywood apesta.
No te fíes nunca del jefe.
Bebe todo lo que puedas.
Ama la música como a ti mismo.

Show de Rat Pack en Las Vegas

Su lema escogido, era “Never rat on a rat” (nunca delates a una rata). Sus integrantes debían meter mano en todas las ollas posibles: televisión, teatro, música, cine y la política. El “Rat Pack” encarnaba los valores de una época en la que el mundo no había perdido aún su inocencia. Antes de que Hollywood se convirtiera en un negocio y las estrellas tuvieran que vivir recluidas en casa. Ellos sonreían, viajaban, eran ricos y guapos, hacían lo que les daba la gana, ¿quién no hubiera querido ser como ellos?

Porque vivían para divertirse, como si el mañana fuera a ser aún mejor que el hoy. Nuca hubo otro grupo como ellos, “fueron irrepetibles porque el mundo ya no es como ellos querían que fuera”.


El grupo Rat Pack en Las Vegas


Entre  1965-1973, Dean Martin es contratado por la NBC y se convierte en el anfitrión de su propio programa de televisión que recibió el nombre de “The Dean Martin Show”.

En el cine realizó el papel de galán y cantante, y dejó papeles memorables como: "El Baile De Los Malditos" (1957) de Edward Dmytryk, “Como un torrente” (1958) de Vincente Minnelli, "Río Bravo" (1959) de Howard Hawks, , “4 tíos de Texas” (1963) de Robert Aldrich, “Bésame tonto” (1964) de Billy Wilder, y “Los Cuatro Hijos De Katie Elder" (1965) de Henry Hathaway.

Tuvo 4 matrimonio de los cuales 9 hijos. Uno de ellos falleció de un accidente aéreo, lo cual sumió a Dean Martin en una profunda depresión de la que no se recuperaría hasta el día de su muerte.

Siempre corrió una leyenda urbana que decía que Dean Martin era un bebedor empedernido, pero en el libro: “Fran Sinatra y el olvidado arte de vivir” decía que apenas bebía, aunque siempre tenía un vaso de licor en las manos, o lo que parecía licor, porque simulaba ser un gran bebedor ya que iba con su rol de vida. En sus shows salía con una copa de vino o de whiskie en la mano, pero muy poca personas sabían que era zumo de uva o té helado.

Del cine se retiró en la primera mitad de los años 80 tras participar en los horribles títulos "Los locos del Cannonball" (1981) y "Los locos del cannonball 2" (1984), ambos títulos dirigidos por Hal Needham.

El  día de Navidad de 1995 Dean Martin falleció a causa de problemas respiratorios. Tenía 78 años.

“Dean Martin el hombre del que hemos aprendido el arte de vivir”

Pero sobre todo participó en los siguientes grandes westerns:


Vaquero Dean Martin
Juntos ante el peligro (1956) de Norman Taurog
 Río Bravo (1959) de Howard Hawks: De todos los western que interpretó, el aficionado al cine guardará siempre en la memoria su interpretación del sheriff borrachín y cobarde en Río Bravo, transmutado finalmente en valiente compañero de John Wayne. Quizá aquel acierto se debiera a que su propia experiencia vital no estaba muy lejos del personaje cinematográfico. Dean Martin, y no sólo en Río Bravo, fue siempre un borrachín de leyenda.

DEAN MARTIN
Published August 4, 2016 by cinestranger





In 1964, Dean Martin was the star of a film in which he played a popular singer named Dino, who liked to drink excessively and caught migraine if he did not love every night. It was obviously a caricature of Dean Martin character; the director was Billy Wilder and the film was titled Kiss Me, Stupid. This rather cruel satire has this spice Dean Martin has probably provided the best interpretation. Soon after, Phil Karlson tried to use the same recipe to launch its series the Silent, in which the famous secret agent Matt Helm parodied much less than James Bond ... Dean Martin, both performer and model. We must believe that there is in the image of the actor something that the public admire, envy and find funny. The rest can wonder how this is close to the true personality of Dean Martin out of the studios: it is highly doubtful that a lazy alcoholic could keep on hand as a successful career, as well as organized and sustainable, as in the comic field (especially with Jerry Lewis) in the dramatic field (Like a flood, Rio Bravo). What is particularly striking about him is the dedication: behind the facade of the gentleman who pretended "not-being-a-player-but-just-a-merry-wino-fucker" hides a comedian first class.

 

His real name Dino Crocetti, was born June 17, 1917 in Steubenville (Ohio). He began his career as a singer in nightclubs and famous collaboration with Jerry Lewis started in 1946. They made their first film together (My good friend Irma) in 1949 and, from 1952, they were among largest commercial entry terms of the United States. They made eighteen films together before separating in 1956, and they had somehow taken the place of Abbott and Costello. The best films that Lewis and Martin have made together are the last they shot with Franck Tashlin: Artists and Models and Hollywood or Bust; but in none of these two Martin's character was well developed.
The commercial value of Martin declined after its separation from Lewis, but he made a great comeback three years later in Bal cursed (in casual soldier) in Some Came Running (in provincial player) and Rio Bravo (in drunken gunman rehabilitated by John Wayne). After this last role, one of the best he has ever held, it has been great in a thunder number with Judy Holliday.



Having then joined the small "clan" of Frank Sinatra in his private life, he was a partner in fun movies and unpretentious as the Las Vegas Unknown; then he again became one of the ten most quoted Hollywood actors with the series Matt Helm. Since then, Dean Martin still has participated in several successful films, including Airport (where he incarnated again a Don Juan) and several good westerns.

Until his death on 12.25.1995 His last years have been marked by sadness and désaroi after the death of his son in a plane crash in 1987.

DEAN MARTIN


DEAN MARTIN

Publié le 4 août 2016 par cinestranger


En 1964, Dean Martin a été la vedette d'un film dans lequel il incarnait un chanteur populaire nommé Dino, qui aimait boire plus que de raison et attrapait la migraine s'il ne faisait pas l'amour tous les soirs. C'était évidemment une caricature du personnage Dean Martin ; le réalisateur en était Billy Wilder et le film s'intitulait Embrasse-moi, idiot. Cette satire assez cruelle a ceci de piquant que Dean Martin y a probablement fourni sa meilleure interprétation. Peu après, Phil Karlson a essayé de recourir à la même recette pour lancer sa série les Silencieux, dans laquelle le fameux agent secret Matt Helm parodiait beaucoup moins James Bond que... Dean Martin, à la fois interprète et modèle. Il faut croire qu'il y a dans l'image de cet acteur quelque chose que le public admire, envie et trouve drôle. On peut du reste se demander dans quelle mesure cette image est proche de la véritable personnalité de Dean Martin hors des studios : il est fort douteux qu'un alcoolique paresseux ait pu tenir en main une carrière aussi réussie, aussi bien organisée et aussi durable, tant dans le domaine comique (spécialement avec Jerry Lewis) que dans le domaine dramatique (Comme un torrent, Rio Bravo). Ce qui frappe surtout chez lui, c'est la conscience professionnelle : derrière la façade du monsieur qui fait semblant de « n'être-pas-un-acteur-mais-seulement-un-jovial-baiseur-poivrot » se dissimule un comédien de premier ordre.

 De son vrai nom Dino Crocetti, il est né le 17 juin 1917 à Steubenville (Ohio). Il a commencé sa carrière comme chanteur dans les boîtes de nuit et sa célèbre collaboration avec Jerry Lewis a débuté en 1946. Ils ont fait ensemble leur premier film (Ma bonne amie Irma) en 1949, et, à partir de 1952, ils étaient parmi les plus grosses vedettes commerciales des Etats-Unis. Ils ont fait dix-huit films ensemble avant de se séparer en 1956, et ils avaient en quelque sorte repris la place d'Abbott et Costello. Les meilleurs films que Lewis et Martin aient faits ensemble sont les derniers qu'ils aient tournés avec Franck Tashlin : Artistes et modèles et Un vrai cinglé de cinéma ; mais dans aucun de ces deux-là le personnage de Martin n'était très développé.
La valeur commerciale de Martin a baissé après sa séparation d'avec Lewis, mais il a fait une rentrée superbe trois ans plus tard dans le Bal des maudits (en soldat désinvolte), dans Comme un torrent (en joueur provincial) et dans Rio Bravo (en tireur ivrogne réhabilité par John Wayne). Après ce dernier rôle, l'un des meilleurs qu'il ait jamais tenus, il a encore été excellent dans Un numéro du tonnerre avec Judy Holliday.

S'étant ensuite joint au petit « clan » de Frank Sinatra dans sa vie privée, il a été son partenaire dans des films amusants et sans prétention comme l'Inconnu de Las Vegas; puis il est redevenu l'un des dix acteurs les plus cotés de Hollywood avec la série de Matt Helm . Depuis lors, Dean Martin a encore participé à plusieurs films à succès, dont Airport (où il incame une fois de plus un don Juan) et plusieurs bons westerns.

Jusqu'à son décès le 25/12/1995 Ses dernières années auront été marquées par la tristesse  et le désaroi après le décès de son fils  dans un accident d'avion en 1987.
