One of my favorite Spy film series......Matt Helm

Hey pallies, it's day duo of Dino-amore-month and we're back with some more Dino-patter on our Dino as Matt Helm. So delighted to share with you the thoughts of 'nother Helmer, Mr. George Solana, who at his blog, "Cinema Vortex," features our Dino in "The Silencers."

When I left him some patter at his pad (clicks on tag of this post to goes there) I 'fessed up that "Murders' Row" is my fav of the Helm capers and thus Miss Ann-Margret is my fav of the Dino-chicks. "The Silencers" is my second fav of the quartet and Miss Stella is down my list of our Dino's leadin' Helm lovlies. But, whatever the Helm caper no one has done a more perfect job of playin' the amorin' spyster then our Dino.

Thanks to Mr. Solana for liftin' up the name of our Dino and sharin' his Dino-devotion to the Matt Helm adventures. So, keeps lovin' our Dino and keeps lookin' for more Dino-lovin' here at ilovedinomartin durin' our celebratin' of this month featurin' Dino-amorin'! Dino-enthralled, DMP

Matt Helm

One of my favorite Spy film series was the Matt Helm films starring Dean Martin. They made 4 of them and a 5th was planned until Dean pulled the plug on it. Here's a few (ok 5, seems i can only post 5 pics to a post) of the first and best Matt Helm film, The Silencers. A wonderful tongue in cheek script and a great cast and i think Stella Stevens was the best Helm girl.
