Hey pallies, likes we are always powerfully pleased when fellow Dino-devotees share delightful Dino-finds with us to share with the larger world of Dino-holics.  We absolutely appreciate all the help we can get to uncover and share the many and varied ways that the life, times, and teachin's of our Dino are bein' shared all over the world wide web.

Likes today we are greatly grateful to our pallie Miss AOW(Always On Watch) who has been
perfectly passionate 'bout our most beloved Dino since her youth, and is also a commentator on the political scene at her blog you can locate by clickin'  HERE.  A few days 'go Miss AOW emailed us a youtube link to  a live interview that model and actress Miss Randi Oakes in 1984.

 We are absolutely always totally totally thrilled to drink in each and every word of our Dino's teachin's in these quite rare glorious glimpses of the man known as our King of Cool.  And, this interview in no exception dudes.

 Dino, ever present Kent Cigarette in hand,  begins his cool comments by proudly proclaimin' that "'Vegas is the place! Love it!"....and then he launches into one of his randiest (likes, pun intended pallies!) of randy jokes. Randi then has our Dino comment on his break up with his partner Jerry Lewis, where our Dino wisely comments, "I had to.  I was tired of doin' the same thin' with Jerry."

The conversation then moves to our Dino's powerful performance in "The Young Lions" and his closer then close relationship with co-star Montgomery Clift.  Dino speaks of his love for Monty by proclaimin' "I loved his so much 'cause he was so helpless and nobody else paid attention to him...nobody.  I loved him very much."  Then Randi moves to interview to focus on our Dino's drinkin' and he says, "I couldn't have stayed in this business for fifty years if I drank as much as people say I drink."

The interview closes with our Dino and Randi playin' a game of pool together, and you'll have to watch to see who wins.  Interspersed with the interview are a few great moments of our Dino croonin' some of his most famous tunes as well as other thoughts on our great man.  The folks who produced this intriguin' interview have been able to pack a lot of great stuff into a little more then six minutes.

We gotta 'fess up that the thin' that touched us most deeply was our most beloved Dino speakin' from his huge heart 'bout his love for Montgomery Clift.  This fact has been well documented in other places on the web, but to hear our Dino speak so openly 'bout his love for Clift truly warms our Dino-heart!

We thanks Miss AOW for pointin' us in the direction of this vibrant video of Miss Randi Oakes doin' this warm, wisely wonderful interview with our wise wonderful Dino!

We remain,

Yours in Dino,

Dino Martin Peters

I'm so glad that I stumbled across this gem of an interview -- an interview I had never before seen.

I'm sure that there are more Dino treasures to unearth.

Note: this interview was conducted before our Dino lost his beloved Dino, Jr. So, our Dino still loved living -- and that shows in the interview.
