Hey pallies, likes here's what I call a spectacular Dino-find! From down under pallie Mr. Greg Poppleton's self-tagged pad, "Greg Poppleton's Radio Lounge," comes a youtube clip of our most beloved Dino and his ever funny partner Mr. Jerry Lewis from June 22, 1952. The clip is of a telethon raisin' funds to send the US Olympic Team to the 1952 Helsinki Games.
Filmed life from the first El Capitan TV Theater on Vine Street in Hollywood, this video treasure captures our great man and his pal in their prime....doin' a bit of funny singin' with all sorts of clownin' 'round...it is cerrtainly vintage Martin and Lewis!
ilovedinomartin sez our thanks to Mr. Greg Poppleton, "a 1920s and 1930s – style singer based in Sydney, Australia" for sharin' this rare Dino-find with his readership in honor of the 2012 Olymics...and givin' all his Dino-holics so so much Dino-pleasure in viewin' this lost treasure. To view this in it's original format, likes just clicks on the tag of this here Dino-gram. Dino-delightedly, DMP
