Hey pallies, likes what woulda youse say is wise way to help someone you amore to grow deeper and deeper in Dino-amore?  Likes to our way of thinkin' besides sharin' your personal testimony of the delightful difference that our Dino has made in one's life is to gift that special someone with Dino-treasure.....CDs, DVDs, books and more!  And, likes today we have a really new Dino-release that you just mighta whata gift to yourself and well as that one that you amore and desire to have grow in amorin' adulation of our most beloved Dino.

From the self-tagged blog pad, "Boyce McClain's Collectors' Corner," comes Mr. McClain's reflections on a new six DVD release simply tagged, "Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis Collection" From Mill Creek Entertainment.   Mr. McClain works in the field of education as a teacher and calls Jacksonville, Florida home.

Frequent readers of ilovedinomartin may remember that we first introduced this latest Dino-release
HERE on January 6 of this very Dino-year.  We are thrilled to see that 28 episodes of the Martin & Lewis Colgate Comedy are included in this set, but we still have the feelin' as with many former releases of this same material that they will not be full episodes, often leavin' out our Dino's musical performances.

The set releases this very Dino-day on February 6 and if you hurry youse might be able to get this new Dino-release in time for giftin' on Dino-amore day!  We thanks Mr. Boyce Mclain for sharin' this Dino-news at his homepad and for makin' the wider Dino-world more Dino-aware!  To checks this out in it's original source, likes simply clicks on the tag of this particular Dino-gram.

We Remain,

Yours in Dino,

Dino Martin Peters

Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis Collection



There have been some very successful movie/radio/TV comedy teams before but none so outrageous, unpredictable and funny as Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis.
  
Surprisingly the team almost did not come to fruition.

The legend goes that one night Dean Martin was performing in a nightclub.  Smooth, polished and sophisticated and a member of the burgeoning troupe of male vocalists fashioned after Frank Sinatra, Dean’s career was solid but not necessarily outstanding.

At that same club (or entertainment venue) Jerry Lewis was struggling to make it as a stand-up comedian.

Somehow the duo met, the chemistry worked and soon Jerry’s slapstick and over-the-top comedic shenanigans and Dean’s smooth-as-silk straight man persona meshed and...success!

The duo would soon go on to guest star on various variety shows, host their own TV program, perform all over the globe, dominate radio and star in a string of movies.
But, the magic would not last forever and after a stormy professional head-butting the duo split and went their separate ways.

Mill Creek Entertainment has compiled a six-disc collection of the best-of-the-best of Dean’s and Jerry’s movie hits along with a special celebration of their award-winning and hilarious ‘The Colgate Comedy Hour’ appearances guest-starring an all-star cast of performers among them Frank Sinatra, Jack Benny, Rosemary Clooney and many more.

They may be gone now but the Martin and Lewis comedy team will never be forgotten and never duplicated.
