Likes as part of a larger post, our Dino is accented 'bout his comedic partnership with Mr. Jerry Lewis and we have included the pertinent patter from the blog 'bout this topic. We gotta 'fess up that we are simply simply swankly smitten by these wise words scribed by one of the twins, "Another non-straight man often mistaken for one is Dean Martin in the Martin and Lewis pairings." Followin' that terrific topic sentence we read a powerful paragraph of remarkable reasons why our Dino ain't a straight man to Jerry and we thinks it is coolly chocked full of Dino-truth!
As much as we are likes in awesome accord with the Dino-notions expressed, we are even more incredibly impressed and intrigued by the Dino and Lewis image that they have used to grace this post. It's a staged shot of our most wonderful Dino and his most wonderful partner, Mr. Jerry Lewis winkin' for the camera. Likes, we have never ever seen this particular pix before, and we gotta 'fess up that it is fast becomin' one of our most fabulous favs of the delightful duo, perhaps only rivalin' the potent pix of our Dino kissin' Jerry durin' a night club gig that we share very often here...indeed in our very last Dino-gram to all youse Dino-philes.
We are deeply deeply indebted to twin sisters Bianca 'n Virginia for givin' us thought provokin' insights on our Dino as straight man---or not...to powerfully ponder, as well as powerfully potent pix of our Dino to solemnly savor! To checks this out, and read their post in it's entirety, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-message.
Yours in Dino,

Another non-straight man often mistaken for one is Dean Martin in the Martin and Lewis pairings. The Martin and Lewis movies started to fail when Dean was treated as a straight man despite the fact that he is not one. Sure, Dean is the smart one compared to the two (like Hardy) but he delivers punch-lines and jokes the same way Jerry does, he just does it differently. Dean may be the more grounded one and he is not nearly as goofy as Jerry but he has his own humor intact. Martin and Lewis work well when Dean and Jerry play off each other equally rather than just Martin playing off Lewis. The change is when it was clear that the studio did not understand the humor crafted by the Martin and Lewis team. Dean had the looks and the singing voice, so he had to be the straight man despite the fact that he never was intended to be one.
