On This Day In Dino-history: April 25, 1973

Hey pallies, likes it was 41 years ago this very day, April 25, 1973 that our most beloved Dino marched himself down the aisle a third time and promised to love, honour, and cherish his youthful bride, Miss Catherine Mae Hawn.    As you look at the stellar weddin' poses 'bove , you can certainly certainly see how very very  much our Dino and Miss Cathy were in amore. Unfortunately our Dino's marriage to wife numero 3 lasted less then 3 years.

Permit us to share a couple of details 'bout the wedding.  The flowers alone cost a cool 85 thou, and our ever generous Dino gave his best man, Mr. Frank Sinatra, the gift of a solid gold cigarette lighter inscribed with his appreciato, "Fuck you very much."

Below is a pix of our Dino on his weddin' night with three of his daughters, Deana, Claudia, and Gina.  Don't our Dino looks so so dashin' with his girlpallies by his side?!?!?!?!

And, likes below the pix are some more  details of the weddin'.  Dino-rememberin', DMP

Considering that at that point, our Dino was the highest-paid entertainer in show biz, he could certainly afford to be generous. And he was! He also gave huge amounts to certain charities in Steubenville.

These photos of our Dino's 3rd wedding show him in this prime -- at nearly 56 years of age. Few men ever aged as gracefully as did our Dino!

If I recall correctly, our Dino adopted Sasha -- and left her a significant inheritance, too.
