Gallery: Martin And Lewis Making Pardners (1956).

Hey pallies, likes ilovedinomartin just knows that there are tons and tons of great Dino-honorin' treasure out there on the web, and likes we tries to do our best to uncover it all, but sometimes we simply have to patiently wait until it surfaces, often via our pallies at google 'lerts.  Case in point, today's Dino-sharin' was published by blogger Toby on September 1, 2013 at his blog pad, "50 Westerns From The 50s."  As you will read below, Toby shared it with his readers as a Labor Day remembrance to MDA hero Mr. Jerry Lewis.  But, likes it only surfaced a couple of days ago through google blog 'lerts, so we share it with you now.

Toby says 'bout himself, "I’m Toby. I’m a writer. A dad. A husband. A record collector. A movie geek (if the movies are old). And I really really wish I had a hot rod."  He is also, "researching and writing a book on 50s Westerns, maybe my favorite film (sub)genre. At this point, I’m calling it —50 Westerns From The 50s."
We at ilovedinomartin are thrilled that he has turned his western writin' the way of our Dino and his partner, Mr. Jerry Lewis.

Likes below are prose and pixs related to our Dino and Jerry's big screen western effort, "Pardners."  Toby shared brief commentary on the flick scribed by Mr. Lewis in his Dino-homage, "Dean And Me: A Love Story" along with some candid shots of Martin and Lewis on the set of the film.  It's a finely put together essay that fondly looks back at our great man and his partner's next-to-last film.

We thank Toby for sharin' this post with his readers, helpin' 'em and us to remember this first big screen western that our western lovin' Dino ever made.  To checks this out in it's original format, simply, as usual, clicks on the tag of this here Dino-message.   Dino-only, DMP

 Gallery: Martin And Lewis Making Pardners (1956).
In my mind, Labor Day belongs to Jerry Lewis. His annual Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) telethon saw to that.
So today seems like the perfect time to highlight Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis inPardners (1956), their next-to-last film together.
Jerry Lewis (from his book Dean And Me: A Love Story): “The best thing aboutPardners, for Dean, was — after having been in love with Westerns all his life — he was actually starring in one. If he had known then that in only four years he’d be making Rio Bravo with John Wayne, he would have been in heaven.”

Lewis: “The best thing for me was learning, from a man named Arvo Ojala, to quick-draw and twirl a pistol…”
Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin
Lewis: “The hardest thing about the picture was the crushing irony of Dean and me singing the film’s title number, written by Jimmy Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn:
You and me, we’ll always be pardners, 
You and me, we’ll always be friends…”
