On This Day In Dino-history: September 5, 1976
Hey pallies, likes it was the most incredibly movin' moment in all of television history and Mr. Frank Sinatra's greatest deed for the good of all humanity. The event of which I speak happened 36 years ago this very Dino-day when on September 5, 1976, Mr. Sinatra orchestrated the reunion of our most beloved Dino and his ol' partner Mr. Jerry Lewis durin' the annual MDA telethon hosted by Lewis.
It had been a bit more then two decades since the split up of Martin & Lewis after their last performance at the Copacabana on that fateful day of July 24, 1956. Twenty long years had passed and many thought that our Dino and his sidekick woulda never speaks 'gain. But thanks to the valiant efforts of Mr. Sinatra, our Dino agreed to come out as a surprise guest at the telethon....and it was like this greatest comedic partnership had never been severed.
I never ever grows tired of viewin' this wonderful reunion of Martin and Lewis...all one has to do is simply glance at the wonderful way these two partners embrace to see the abidin' love between 'em....a love that 20 years of separation had not been able to sever.
So today, we remember and honor one of the most wonderful days in all of Dino-history....the day of reunion of our most beloved Dino and the man our Dino affectionately tagged Jer. Dino-enthralled, DMP
September 5, 1976 Martin and Lewis reunite for the first time in 20 years during a broadcast of Jerry Lewis' annual Muscular Dystrophy telethon, when Frank Sinatra brings a surprise guest, Dean, onstage with him.
