Redington Shores entertainer remembers the good old days

Another member of the Rat Pack was Dean Martin, who Carme said was special in many ways.
“I don’t care who was on the stage, your eyes always went to Dean, he had that magic on the stage,” he said.
It turns out Martin didn’t like to rehearse; he relied on cue cards during his live show. But other actors had to rehearse so they would know when to say their lines. That’s where Carme came in; he played the part of Dean Martin during those rehearsals.
Despite that, Carme says Martin was as relaxed as anyone he has ever seen in show business.
“Dean was the best, even playing golf he was relaxed. He went through life enjoying himself,” he said.
Carme said he once asked Martin if he patterned himself after Perry Como or Bing Crosby.
“He said no, he admired the Mills Brothers, especially Harry Mills. That’s who he emulated,” he said.
