Scotty's Sharin': Dean Martin and Shirley MacLaine 1958

Hey pallies, likes we're back one 'gain with a energetic edition of Scotty's Sharin'.  This time 'round our deeply diggin' Dino dude Scotty has shared a well known pose of our most beloved Dino and Miss Shirley MacLaine circa 1958.

What makes our Scotty's sharin' so so swankly special is that he includes potent prose scribed by Miss Shirley 'bout a time she spent movin' moments with our Dino in his den while a dinner party was in progress at the Martin home.  These tremendously touchin' and terrifically  tender thoughts are ones that we have never read before and trust that this may be true for most of youse devoted Dino-holics as well.

Likes what a gigantic gem of Dino-devotion!   The incredibly intriguin' insights that Miss MacLaine offers into our Dino's powerful psyche bring such happiness to our Dino-hearts, to be able to delve deeper and deeper into our main man motivations.

Once 'gain we solemnly salute our pallie of pallies Scotty for yet 'nother coolest of cool contribution to the cause of knowin', lovin', and honorin' our main  man at his beau-ti-ful blog "BlueisKewl."  To checks this out in it's original source, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-report.  Dino-delightedly, DMP

Dean Martin and Shirley MacLaine 1958
'Once I lost my pearls at one of their dinner parties. I wandered around looking for them and ended up in Dean’s den. He was watching television while his guests were having dinner. He said I could sit down. I did and he told me he felt shy about not being educated and ashamed of his limited vocabulary and his lack of political and social knowledge. “I can’t understand what the hell they’re talking about down there,” he said. “So I don’t want them to know I feel dumb.” He then launched into some new material for his club act, which was so funny I laughed until I felt like I had a hernia! Dean was terrified of the intimacy required to carry on a conversation, so he inevitably segued into comedy routines.' - Shirley MacLaine

Dean Paul Martin (born Dino Paul Crocetti; June 7, 1917 – December 25, 1995) was an American singer, actor, comedian, and film producer.

One of the most popular and enduring American entertainers of the mid-20th century, Martin was nicknamed the "King of Cool" for his seemingly effortless charisma and self-assurance. He and Jerry Lewis were partners in the immensely popular comedy team "Martin and Lewis". He was a member of the "Rat Pack" and a star in concert stage/nightclubs, recordings, motion pictures, and television. He was the host of the television variety program The Dean Martin Show (1965–1974) and The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast (1974–1985).

Martin's relaxed, warbling crooning voice earned him dozens of hit singles including his signature songs "Memories Are Made of This", "That's Amore", "Everybody Loves Somebody", "You're Nobody till Somebody Loves You", "Sway", "Volare", and "Ain't That a Kick in the Head?".

Shirley MacLean Beaty (born April 24, 1934), known professionally as Shirley MacLaine, is an American film, television and theater actress, singer, dancer, activist and author. She has won an Academy Award, five Golden Globe Awards, including the Cecil B. DeMille Award, an Emmy Award and two BAFTA Awards.

In 2012, she received the 40th AFI Life Achievement Award from the American Film Institute, and in 2013 received the Kennedy Center Honors for lifetime contributions to American culture through the performing arts. She is known for her New Age beliefs and interest in spirituality and reincarnation. She has written a series of autobiographical works, many dealing with her spiritual beliefs as well as her Hollywood career.
