Dean Martin: Singer, Television Star, Movie Actor, Celebrity Role Model and Charming
April 12th, 2012
Dean Martin is aimed at men and women. The men loved him because he had this cool, polite behavior and devil-may-care attitude. Women loved him because he was literally tall, dark and handsome and had that mischievous twinkle in his eyes.
It is often said that Dean as a model that just came out of the fashion magazine for men watched. I remember once heard someone say that Dean looked so comfortable in his tuxedo, as do most to people in their pajamas. Relaxed and charming are two words perhaps, by his personality. In addition, his producer Greg Garrison once said that Dean was a constant smile and what you see is exactly the dean, had what you get.
If anyone wanted to find a celebrity model, it would be Dean. The entertainment industry has always had its share of scandals, but he kept his private life, and certainly not helped them.
Instead, we see a man who was always the man with whom he worked nicely, would be on time for his calls on the stage, and support of other artists who worked with him. Charles Nelson Reilly was a guest on TV show Dean. He said that if they did a comedy sketch and Charles had a good laugh, Dean would repel his way is right for you, Charles.
Dean and his partner Jerry Lewis was one of the best comedy teams ever recorded. The team of Martin & Lewis took 10 years, from 1946 to 1956. Towards the end they were talking to each other little, except when in their action on the stage.
After several films, her own TV show, part of the Colgate Comedy Hour and many nightclub appearances, she called it closes. Her last appearance was as a team on the famous Copacabana in New York.
Even if Dean had a carefree personality and relaxed, it was his own master. For example, it was Dean, ended the comedy act Martin & Lewis. Jerry took over more and more control over their scripts, and Dean had to play the roles that he told was tired. He wanted to make films more seriously. Dean has had enough and said it was the end of their act.
Both Dean and Jerry had their own people management and of course there were some serious money was to give all of their various businesses. Obviously, the lawyers for each team considered it a disaster. Early in the process of sorting the big things in one of the lawyers said Dean, “you can not just walk away from $ 30 million in income,” and Dean replied: “Oh yes, you just look at me.”
Most night clubs and casinos along the west coast and east coast at this time were owned or run by the Mafia. Dean’s friend Frank Sinatra would have to meet before and hang out with some members of the Mafia, but Dean was again his own master. He did very well at will and occasionally would make a special benefit show for them, if asked, but he did not jump through hoops for them.
Another example is when Frank was wanted in a celebratory mood after the show, party-hardy. A number of friends of Frank were “yes men, but Dean was not there. If Frank wanted Dean to hang and party, but Dean and Dean and do not say the catch-up at a later date.
One of Dean’s passion was golf. When to play it the next day he did not stay out late at night when he did begin as soon as possible. Dean’s son Ricci said his father was actually an early riser for most of his professional life. Dean was a really good golfer and plays zero when he was at the top of his game
There were stories about the style of singing that Dean said he was influenced by Bing Crosby. But honestly, is that his main influence was Harry Mills of Mills Brothers. If you were to see a video of the famous singing brothers, it is clear that there are certain similarities between Dean and the style of Harry.
Dean was married three times. His second marriage was to Jane Smith, and took 20 years from 1949 to 1969, when they are separated. The divorce was finalized in 1973. Over the years later they were seen together from time to time and the audience wondered if maybe she wanted back together. Jeanne said in an interview once when Dean entered a room in a function, it was like magic. It seems they still have feelings for Dean.
Jeanne was a devout believer in the family. She took the four children from a previous marriage of Dean to live and stay with them, and I loved each of them with three children she had with Dean.
Dean’s son, Dean Paul was an officer in the Air National Guard in California and died in 1987, crashed when his F-4 Phantom fighter jet army in the mountains of San Bernardino. Many people in entertainment, and friends say that Dean never recovered from the loss of his son.
In 1993, Dean began to deteriorate health, and he was diagnosed with lung cancer. He died of acute respiratory failure at home in the morning on Christmas Day in 1995.
How could anyone ever forget a few songs, the melodies of Dean will be forever in our minds. “There Somewhere there is a person” Songs like ‘written by my friend Baker Knight,’ Til someone Nobody Loves You’re, “and his signature song,” Everybody Loves Somebody “, written by Ken Lane, this will be a long time as a time to coming. I still miss him, but Dean still we hear all the songs on their wonderful (smile).
And yes, everyone loves Somebody Sometime, and we all love you, Dean. Good night.
