On this day – July 25,1946 – At Club 500 in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis stage their first show as a comedy team.

Some Hollywood press agent must have wracked his brains to come up with this version of an old Chinese proverb for a publicity stunt. The actors from left to right are Jerry Lewis, Pierre, and Dean Martin shown July 13, 1950. (AP Photo/Paramount)

Movie comedians Dean Martin, left, and Jerry Lewis, assisted by actress Elaine Stewart, are collecting prints footprints in Hollywood, Sept. 24, 1951. As part of the clothing drive for American Relief for Korea, they are planning to immortalize 10 movie fans' footprints in cement outside the Gar-Ron noncommercial theater, built by Lewis to show 16-millimeter movies he produces. The footprints to be imbedded in the cement, before the theater's premier on October 1, will be chosen from among pairs sent to Jerry Lewis in Hollywood for the relief drive. (AP Photo)

In case you're not familiar with zombies (reanimated corpses, it says here,) that's one in the center. He's supposed to scare people, but Jerry Lewis, who was scared to the point of almost losing his life, has twisted his twistable face into a zombie-scaring shape. So the creep creeps against Dean Martin for protection. It's all part of a movie, "Scared Still," being made on March 26, 1953 in Hollywood, Calif. Zombi is unidentified. (AP Photo)
