Scotty's Sharin': Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada


Hey pallies, likes stop the pressed dudes!  Likes we had planned to take only a couple of days break from our current 10---count 'em---10 part series on Dino-posters...for Danny G's Sunday Serenade With Dino and for yesterday's remembrance of On This Day In Dino-history:  April 25, 1973....the date of our Dino's third marriage to Miss Cathy Mae Hawn.

But likes yesterday in doin' some Dino-searchin' we discovered that our most loyal of loyal pallie Scotty-o had put up a powerfully potent Dino-post at his beau-ti-ful blog "BlueisKewl" after several weeks break 'cause of a recent move he had made.  So we just had to get his cool contribution of Dino-devotion up ASAP seein' how it is one of the very first thin's he has done since gettin' his 'puter back in action!

So, below are a couple of perfect poses of our most beloved Dino while playin' at the Sands Hotel in 'Vegas baby 'Vegas.  The first is of our main man with his main pallie Mr. Frank Sinatra, and the second is part of the same pose with only our Dino.  While we have posted the first impressive image of our Dino more than once here at ilovedinomartin, we don't ever remember knowin' that this coolest of cool candid was shot by none other then Mr. Sammy Davis, Jr.

We are totally totally thrilled to see our Scotty returnin' to active Dino-duty at his incredibly impressive blog and we thanks him mucho mucho much for his on-goin' awesome adulation of our Dino and helpin' his remarkable readership growin' deeper and truer in their deepest of deep devotion to our King of Cool.  Likes to checks this out in it's original source, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-report.  And, btw, we definitely do plan on returnin' to the rest of the 10 part series of Dino-posters on Wednesday.  Dino-delightedly, DMP

The Rat Pack was a group of actors originally centered on their leader, Humphrey Bogart, until his death in 1957. By the 1960s it was the name used by the press and the general public to refer to a later variation of the group that called itself "the Summit" or "the Clan," featuring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop; they appeared together on stage and in films in the early 1960s, including the movies Ocean's 11, Sergeants 3, and Robin and the 7 Hoods (in the last film, Bing Crosby replaced Lawford). Sinatra, Martin, and Davis were regarded as the group's lead members.

On This Day In Dino-history: April 25, 1973


Kathy
Hey pallies, likes we take a tinny weeny break from our 10 part Dino-poster series 'cause it was 43 years ago today, April 25, 1973 that our most beloved Dino marched himself down the aisle a third time and promised to love, honour, and cherish his youthful bride, Miss Catherine Mae Hawn.    As you look at the stellar weddin' poses, you can certainly certainly see how very very  much our Dino and Miss Cathy were in amore. Unfortunately our Dino's marriage to wife numero 3 lasted less then 3 years.

Permit us to share a couple of details 'bout the wedding.  The flowers alone cost a cool 85 thou, and our ever generous Dino gave his best man, Mr. Frank Sinatra, the gift of a solid gold cigarette lighter inscribed with his appreciato, "Fuck you very much."

Below is a pix of our Dino on his weddin' night with three of his daughters, Deana, Claudia, and Gina.  Don't our Dino looks so so dashin' with his girlpallies by his side?!?!?!?!

Likes below the pix are some more  details of the weddin'.  Likes come back tomorrow when we return with part 7 of our ten part Dino-poster series of potent posts.  Dino-rememberin', DMP

Danny G's Sunday Serenade with Dino: "I Wish You Love"


"I wish you bluebirds in the Spring, to give your heart a song to sing."
 Man...that says it ALL, pals.
Dino wishing us somethin' as BEA U TI FUL as that REALLY says a lot to me.
It's one of the simplest thoughts in the world...peaceful...tranquil even!
 But, man o man...it's great!
It tells us that the smallest thins' in this world can be the BIGGEST treasures!
 Dosen't need to come from a fancy store or a sparklin' showroom.
 It comes from our heart & soul, my friends.
Some of the GREATEST joys in my life & MOSTEST specialist moments have been quiet & calm.
 No fantastico party...no over-the-top celebration...just a sunny day with a special friend or a relaxin' night with some Dino & vino flowin'!

That's the good stuff, pallies.

So for the last Serenade of this WON DER FUL month...as we say "So-long" to April 2016...let's keep those "easy, breazy days" in mind.
Their what REALLY matter, mi amici.

"I Wish You Love" is EXACTLY the way I want to slide into May!
Laid back & chillin'...& DEF IN ATE LY  O so cool! Haha!!
 Yes, pals o mine...let Dean's soothin' voice guide youse to serenity! Ha!
Enjoy! 


I wish you bluebirds in the spring
To give your heart a song to sing
And then a kiss
But more than this
I wish you love

And in July a lemonade
To cool you in some leafy glade
I wish you health
And more than wealth
I wish you love

My breaking heart and I agree
That you and I could never be
So with my best, my very best
I set you free

I wish you shelter from the storm
A cozy fire to keep you warm
But most of all
When snowflakes fall
I wish you love

I wish you shelter from the storm
A cozy fire to keep you warm
But most of all
When snowflakes fall
I wish you love
I wish you love
I wish you love.

KISS ME STUPID (1964) - DEAN MARTIN MOVIE POSTERS (Part 6/10)

Hey pallies, likes as we move on to part 6 of our 10 part series from the pallies at  "ILLUSTRACTION GALLERY - ART THAT POPS,"  we move from posters accentin' one of our Dino's westerns, "The Sons Of Katie Elder,"  to the flick that  proved to be Dino's  most controversial silver screen outin', the sex farce, "Kiss Me Stupid."

The poster images are quite familiar to us 'cause it looks very much like the American version of the promo poster for KMS, but below  "is the vintage French movie poster sporting a great illustration painting by Jean Mascii."  We find the French translation of "Kiss Me Stupid" as "Embrasse Moi Idiot" to be most interestin'.  Makes us wonder if there were parts of the Dino-universe where "Kiss Me Stupid' fared better then in the USA.  Perhaps when can make that our homework some day to see what we can find out!

As we have said over and over, we thinks the coolest part of this 10 part series is to see the awesome international nature of our Dino's efforts as motion picture star extraordinare.  So, thanks 'gain to the pallies at  "ILLUSTRACTION GALLERY - ART THAT POPS" for puttin' this stellar series together for our Dino-viewin' enjoyment.  To checks this out in it's original source, as ever, clicks on the tag of this here Dino-report.  Dino-always, ever, and only, DMP
