Dino & Sophia

Hey pallies, likes our great pallie Otto Bruno is back with some more Dino-magic for his "Otto Bruno" blogpad readers. His current Dino-trib is some patter and Dino-clips from our great man's great flick "Kiss Me Stupid."

As I have often said before, our beloved Dino is always ahead of his time and certainly this classic Dino-flick is evidence of said Dino-thoughts. "Kiss Me Stupid" woulda be considered very tame by today's standards, but it 1964 it was totally darin' and rad in nature. We thanks our pallie Otto for continuin' to lift up the name of our Dino and share more and more Dino-treasure with is blog followers. Keeps lovin' our Dino pallies!

Dino & Sophia

June 24th, 2010 | Classic Films, Italian America

For our Dino fans, here’s a couple of clips from the misunderstood (shall we say?) 1964 film Kiss Me Stupid. What I always found most amazing about this film is Dean’s willingness to parody his own character and portray himself in such an unsympathetic light. I think it probably said something about his sense of security with who he was as well as his trust in director Billy Wilder.

By the way, I always found it extremely amusing that this song from these two amateur songwriters was, in fact, written by George and Ira Gershwin. Now THAT, my friends, is what they call irony!

If you’re a Dean Martin fan, the movie needs no explanation so just enjoy the clips!
