Hey pallies, likes all the Dino-faithful here knows how much I loves our Dino as Matt Helm...and that of the four Helmer my least fav is "The Ambushers." But, likes even though Helmer numero tres is least in my Matt Helm rankin's, today's Dino-thoughts show that even this lesser Dino-effort still has so so much Dino-pleasure to recommend it!
From the motor vehicle accented blog, "Driven" comes a swingin' post puttin' the accent on our most beloved Dino as Matt Helm in "The Ambushers." Whoever scribed this Dino-post sez it all with the tag of this Dino-prose, "Dean Martin Gets a Grip."
Indeed watchin' and listenin' to our Dino makin' with the wise cracks as he is makin' it with all the cool chicks in this flick is certainly worth the price of admission!
Thanks to the pallies at "Driven" for sharin' this touchin' pix of our Dino gettin' a grip on the action...certain to peak motor vehicle affectionados' attention and sendin' 'em off to get their fix on our most affectionate Dino!

Dean Martin as secret agent Matt Helm in 1967′s The Ambushers
Meet the inspiration for Mike Myers’ shagadelic secret agent – Dean Martin as undercover man Matt Helm.
The Rat Pack-er made a a series of Helm films in the Sixties, designed as a spoof on James Bond.
Booze, babes and swinging style were not enough to counter less than stellar scripts, alas.
Here we see Martin, a government agent disguised as a fashion photographer, laughing it up on a Lambretta Cento scooter with a lovely lass in 1967′s The Ambushers.
What else is he supposed to hold on to….?
