Dean Martin: The seducer

Hey pallies, likes today we continue to put the accent on international Dino-love. Yesterday we heard of the Dino-affection of a chick in Croatia; today we visit with
Miss Josée L who hails from Québec, Canada. Writin' in French at her flick tagged blog, "Cine-immortel," Miss Josée has done an extensive series of blog posts on famous actors and actresses...of course, likes includin' our most beloved Dino.

Loves her very provocative title, "Dean Martin: The seducer," sure to grab the attention of her faithful readers. Her Dino-essay includes many of the usual high points in Dino-history..and likes you just might test yourself to look for the few errors she has made in tellin' the Dino-narrative.

My fav part of her Dino-reflections is how she not only lists our Dino's extensive movie credits, but includes a bit of a description of many of the flicks...likes for example..."At War With the Army / Soldier recalcitrant" and " Sailor Beware / The polka sailors " Really digs these evocative descriptions!

Again, likes pallies how cool is it, to find Dino-adulation by pallies of such a variety of ages, from diverse parts of the known world! ilovedinomartin sez our thanks to Québecian Miss Josée L for sharin' her take on the life and times of our great man..sure does trust that your Dino-efforts will bear much fruit in pumpin' up the Dino-revolution in your neck of the world! To view this in it's original format, likes just clicks on the tag of this Dino-gram. Dino-grooved, DMP
