Hey pallies, likes the month of March was a the month for our most beloved Dino to officially break the ties with two of his wifes. As reported a few days ago, it was on March 23, 1949 that our Dino legally finished his marriage with wife numero uno, Elizabeth Anne McDonald. And, today is the anniversary of his legal partin' of the ways with wife numero duo. It was on March 29 in 1973 that our great man officially ended his marriage to Jeanne Biegger.
Dino has originally sought the divorce from Jeanne after he met, while playin' in 'Vegas baby 'Vegas, 21 year old Miss Gail Renshaw. Our most beloved Dino was stunnin'ly 'n swankly smitten by Renshaw, then servin' as Miss USA.
After 'bout six months that amore cooled, and at the point that our Dino's divorce was finalized, Miss Catherine Mae Hawn, a 24 year old beauty parlor receptionist was waitin' in the wings. Our Dino was engaged to Miss Hawn, who would become the third Mrs. Dean Martin less then a month after our Dino's divorce was finalized from Jeanne.
Likes we truly does find it so interestin' that on the same day of the month of March, but 20 years apart our Dino's richly romantically crooned "Return To Me" in 1953 and then in 1973 legally made it clear that he was not returnin' to Jeanne. Likes it is always, always so great to remind ourselves of all these important dates in the life and times of our most most beloved Dino! Dino-learnin' and growin', DMP
