Matt Helm, the man with wacky gun, penchant for cocktails, and pretty ladies always by his side

Hey pallies, likes she's a French blogger chick who tags herself "la femme responsable de ce gâchis (the woman responsible for this mess)." The "mess" she is "responsible for" is the coolest of the cool blog, "The Killer Likes Candy...An obsession with nineteen sixties cool."

In her "obsession with" 1960's "cool," she has created an ultra ubber cool post puttin' the accent on our most beloved Dino in Helmer caper numero duo, my most fav of fav Matt Helm flicks, "Murder's Row." Her amazin' photo essay includes the movie poster featurin' our Dino and Miss Ann-Margret, 26-count-em-26 fabulous vid caps, and a flick trailer of MR to boot.

When I think of the time that this French blogger chick put into gettin' those vid caps captured and posted, I get such a Dino-high knowin' that she must truly be likes totally totally devoted to our amazin' man. Likes when I first put my eyes on this Dino-feast, likes I was totally totally blown away with this amazin' Dino-display of swingin' pixs from the secret swingin' agent Matt Helm.

This French chick blogger refers to her blog as "The Killer Likes Candy" and gotta 'fess up that I loves candy as well...'specially of the Dino-variety and likes this outstandin' Dino-post is the sweetest of the sweet Dino-treats..loaded like a box of assorted chocolates with lots and lots of Dino-treats.

ilovedinomartin sez our deepest of deepest Dino-thanks to Miss "woman responsible for this mess" and 'presses our likes total total Dino-delight in this massive Dino-pix reflection on "Murder's Row." To this view this in all it's original Dino-glory, likes just clicks on the tag of this Dino-scribin'. Dino-awed and Dino-delighted, DMP

Murderer's Row (1966)

Director: Henry Levin

Writers: Herbert Baker (screenplay), Donald Hamilton (novel)

Stars: Dean Martin, Ann-Margret and Karl Malden

Number two in the Matt Helm collection. A slightly toasty Dean Martin (are you surprised?) plays secret agent Matt Helm, the man with wacky gun, penchant for cocktails, and pretty ladies always by his side (or with a gun to his back). I love, love, love the crazy fashion in the Matt Helm films and I especially love miss Ann-Margret as the frantic gogo dancing "Helm Girl" in this film. She oozes adorable just as I'm sure Deano was oozing gin for sweat. The bad guy has a metal skull plate and Karl Malden is as wormy as ever the super bad bad guy. I want Matt Helms bar.

Keeps lovin' our Dino!
