Dino Poses and Prose From TV BUZER

Hey pallies, likes logic tells us that there is a finite number of photos of our most beloved Dino, while common sense tells us that we will never ever cast our gazes at everyone of 'em.  And, 'cause of that, we will always always be searchin' for pixs of our Dino yet uncovered by ilovedinomartin.

Likes recently we had a wee bit of time to do some google image searchin' and we felt so led by our Dino to simply place the words DEAN MARTIN AT HOME in the ol' google image search engine. One of the first places we were led to is the entertainment pad, "TV BUZER," which we had never ever been to before.  What we found there was a stellar summary of our Dino's life and times which is printed below for your Dino-edification, as well as a potent parcel of Dino-images includin' at least half of 'em bein' Dino-poses that we ain't ever remember castin' our glance on before!

We can see why our quire of DEAN MARTIN AT HOME led us here 'cause four of the pixs are shots of our Dino at home with fam Martin.  There are also four candid shots of our Dino on the set of the 1962 Rat Pack epic "Sergeants 3."   All in all, these stunnin'ly stellar assortment of Dino-poses provide a fine feast for Dino-holics viewin' Dino-pleasure!  And, of course, this delightful Dino-find will simply spur us on to more and more Dino-treasure!

We salute the pallies at "TV BUZER" for these wise words and potent poses on in huge homage of our one and only Dino.  To checks this out in it's original source, likes simply clicks on the tag of this Dino-report.

We remain,

Yours in Dino,

Dino Martin Peters

TV BUZER   Dean Martin At Home

Dean Martin (1) | TVBuzer
If there had to be one image for cool, the one man to fit it would be Dean Martin. Born Dino Paul Crocetti in Steubenville, Ohio, he spoke only Italian until age five. Martin came up the hard way, with such jobs as a boxer (named Kid Crochet), a steel mill worker, a gas station worker and a card shark.

 In 1946 he got his first ticket to stardom, as he teamed up with another hard worker who was also trying to hit it big in Hollywood: y-Lewis">Jerry Lewis. The duo were to become one of Hollywood's truly great teams. They lasted 11 years together, and starred in 16 movies. They were unstoppable, but personality conflicts broke up the team.

Even without Lewis, Martin was a true superstar. Movies such as The Young Lions (1958) and Rio Bravo (1959) brought him international fame. One of his best remembered films is in Ocean's Eleven (1960), in which he played Sam Harmon alongside the other members of the legendary Rat Pack: Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford. After this point, Dean went on to more critically acclaimed ventures, such as in Sergeants 3 (1962), Toys in the Attic (1963), and Who's Been Sleeping in My Bed? (1963).

In 1965 Martin explored a new method for entertaining his fans: Television. That year he hosted one of the most successful TV series in history: The Dean Martin Comedy Hour (1965), which lasted until 1973. In 1965 it won a Golden Globe Award. In 1973 he renamed it "The Dean Martin Comedy Hour", and from 1974 to 1984 it was renamed again, this time "The Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts". It became one of the most successful TV series in history, skewering such greats as Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, James Stewart, George Burns' Milton Berle, Don Rickles Phyllis Diller, and Joe Namath.

After the 1980s Martin took it easy--that is, until his son, Dean Paul Martin died in a plane crash in 1987. Devastated by the loss, from which he never recovered, he walked out on a reunion tour with Sinatra and Davis. Martin spent his final years in solitude. He died on Christmas Day, 1995.
