Notes from an interview that I seem to remember having with Mr Dean Martin ( possibly only in my dreams ) at the Sands, Las Vegas, in 1969. 

Tell me, Dean, may I call you Dean ? ...
 Sure yuh can, kid, waddaya wanna know ?

... when you ran with the Pack why did you allow Sinatra to dominate the group when everyone could tell you had by far the strongest personality ?  
Oh, don't yuh lissen to gossip, kid.  Frank was the King in them days.  I just hung around for the girls.  Gee, those gals ... legs goin' on for ever.  And, boy, could they drink !

But you fell out with him.  I read you refused to perform in a Chicago club where he had Mob connections.  Didn't Sinatra cut you dead for a long time afterwards ?

Now yuh shouldn't lissen to those stories, they ain't true.  But supposin' they were ... so what if Frank didn't ring me for six years, so what if the old bastard cut me dead in public.  Frank was the King, an we all wanned it that way.

One last question, Dean.  Do you believe Sinatra envied your considerable stage presence and that's why he favoured Sammy Davis ... that he felt more comfortable with Sammy paying him court than with you who wouldn't ?

Now that's an interesting thought. Wud yuh like a drink, kid ?  I think this could be a long evenin'.

  Psst.....Seamus, d'ye tink this story's true ?  
Jaysus, Michael, how'd I  know.   
But, Seamus, it could be true, couldn't it ?  
Yes, an' I might be the King o' the Fairies !

Dean Martin sera membre du

Irresistible crooner, tapped by the depression, Dean Martin was not a good buddy charmer. Explanation.

He had never liked to work. His relatives were the first to recognize him. "He was a good guy," said Emilio Julian, who had known him as a teenager, but was no more lazy, a brave guy with that, just not wanting to work . His father, Guy Crocetti , who came from Abruzzo to do hairdressing in Ohio, would have liked him to be like his elder brother. A workhorse. But Dino, who is not yet known as Dean Martin , did not think it was necessary to triumph to be happy: " At home," he said, "we did not lack anything, we had a car and we ate well. "What more could you ask for in life? *

Born in 1917 in Steubenville, an old industrial center and a new eldorado for brothels and gambling dens, Dino Crocetti prefers to play games where the handling of cards teaches him more about human nature than the rules of morality taught in middle School. " From childhood, will reveal his cousin Mary, he also walked in the house, a hat on his head, singing serious songs. " "Canzone" Neapolitan or "crooneries" of Bing Crosby; no matter what, in the Mediterranean tradition, marry elegance and virility.

Dean Martin also had a dark face

Crooked by clubs and bars, Crocetti was engaged by Sammy Watkins' orchestra in 1940 : " Dino, " he said, " had this wonderful way of singing, relaxed and relaxed." He was born with this gift. "Rebaptized Dean Martin , married to "Betty" and soon father of family, the beginner manages this little recognition by spending his money and drinking more than reason. His friend, former boxer Sonny King , reveals the dark face of a man who " did not take anyone seriously except himself." He was always distant and sometimes said, "You're my best friend" , but in a way that did not believe. "At the same time, a gifted comedian of 19 years crosses the way of Martin.

Jerry Lewis is fascinated by the singer's pace and discovers in him an untapped gift: " Dean, he will remember, had a brilliant sense of humor that just fell every time. " Improvising a number after they perform a duet in Atlantic City in 1946. While Martin continues to record his own recordings, their tandem is wreaking havoc in all theaters across the country, hosting his shows on the radio and on NBC, before leavingThere, Dean slams part of his fortune at the casino and seduces - in competition with Jerry - almost all starlets in the studio. "He was a good lover, but his true passion was golf, said Herman Hover, owner of Ciro's Club. He was still joking. He was an intelligent but rude guy. "The end of his partnership with Lewis leaves disoriented. Divorced and remarried Jeannie attends, bitter, the emergence of Elvis Presley . If the actor Dean revives cinema in the dramatic register with Like a flood, the crooning bounces by making a Volare tube .

"Make me a pipe and get well"

The following year, in 1959, he made equal play with John Wayne in cowboy aviné of Rio Bravo. " It's a damn good actor, so nice, so good, will see its director Howard Hawks. But it's also a guy who goes through life letting themselves carry. He needs to be stimulated. " Also, with the exception of his brilliant au-toparodie of Embrasse-moi idiot, goes through the following decade, saving himself, preferring to other challenges the reassuring companionship of Frank Sinatra , who integrates him to his " Rat Pack ". Dean still shakes the housewife singing Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime , but will not cross the course of the fifty. Too many women, too much money, too much alcohol, too long. And all this for a falsely sociable man, not really sentimental, who gives way to his conquests one evening: " Make me a pipe and get on well, " without ceasing to be a gentleman. A solitary, lucid to cruelty, who drags himself from gala to golf course, during his last thirty years. " He spends hours in front of the TV, confirms his second wife, Dean has always loved the void. " To forget and no longer suffer: the death of his eldest son, prostate, boredom. Before, at 78 years, in 1995, to let go definitively. A fine achievement for a man who had never liked to force himself.

Dean Martin : la face cachée (et sombre) de l'acteur-crooner
Par Olivier Rajchman Le 15 septembre 2017

Irrésistible crooner, taraudé par la dépression, Dean Martin n'était pas qu'un bon copain charmeur. Explication.

Il n'avait jamais aimé travailler. Ses proches étaient les premiers à le reconnaître. "C'était un chic type, affirmera Emilio Julian, qui l'avait connu adolescent, mais y avait pas plus fainéant. Brave garçon avec ça. Simplement, il voulait pas travailler." Son père, Guy Crocetti, venu des Abruzzes pour faire le coiffeur dans l'Ohio, aurait souhaité qu'il soit comme son frère aîné. Un bosseur. Mais Dino, qui ne s'appelle pas encore Dean Martin, ne pensait pas qu'il faille trimer pour être heureux : "Chez nous, dira-t-il, on ne manquait de rien. On avait une voiture et l'on mangeait bien." Que demander de plus à la vie ? *

Né en 1917 à Steubenville, vieux centre industriel et nouvel eldorado pour les bordels et les tripots, Dino Crocetti préfère à l'école les maisons de jeux où le maniement des cartes lui en apprend plus sur la nature humaine que les règles de moralité enseignées au collège. "Dès l'enfance, révélera sa cousine Mary, il se promenait aussi dans la maison, un chapeau sur la tête, en chantant des chansons graves." "Canzone" napolitaines ou "crooneries" de Bing Crosby ; qu'importe pourvu que se marient, dans la tradition méditerranéenne, élégance et virilité.

Dean Martin avait aussi une face sombre

Écumant clubs et bars, Crocetti est engagé, en 1940, par l'orchestre de Sammy Watkins : "Dino, dira celui-ci, avait cette merveilleuse façon de chanter, décontractée, relax. Il était né avec ce don." Rebaptisé Dean Martin, marié à « Betty » et bientôt père de famille, le débutant gère cette petite reconnaissance en dépensant son argent et en buvant plus que de raison. Son ami, l'ex-boxeur Sonny King, révèle la face sombre d'un homme "qui ne prenait personne au sérieux, sauf lui-même. Il était toujours distant. Parfois, il me disait : " Tu es mon meilleur pote", mais d'une manière qui faisait qu'on n'y croyait pas." Au même moment, un comique surdoué de 19 ans croise le chemin de Martin.

Jerry Lewis est fasciné par l'allure du chanteur et décèle en lui un don inexploité : "Dean, se souviendra-t-il, avait un sens de l'humour brillant qui tombait juste à chaque fois." Improvisant un numéro d'après-spectacle, ils explosent en duo à Atlantic City, en 1946. Tandis que Martin continue d'enregistrer ses propres disques, leur tandem fait des ravages dans toutes les salles du pays, anime ses shows à la radio et sur NBC, avant de partir à la conquête du cinéma et de Hollywood. Là, Dean claque une partie de sa fortune au casino et séduit - en concurrence avec Jerry - la quasi-totalité des starlettes du studio. "C'était un bon amant, mais sa vraie passion c'était le golf, précisera Herman Hover, propriétaire du club Ciro's. Il était toujours en train de plaisanter. C'était un gars intelligent mais fruste." La fin de son partenariat avec Lewis le laisse déboussolé. Divorcé puis remarié à Jeannie, il assiste, amer, à l'émergence d'Elvis Presley. Si Dean l'acteur ressuscite au cinéma dans le registre dramatique avec Comme un torrent, le crooner rebondit en faisant un tube de Volare.

"Fais-moi une pipe et porte-toi bien"

L'année suivante, en 1959, il fait jeu égal avec John Wayne en cow-boy aviné de Rio Bravo. "C'est un sacré bon acteur, si gentil, si doué, constatera son metteur en scène Howard Hawks. Mais c'est aussi un type qui traverse la vie e n se laissant porter. Il a besoin d'être stimulé." Aussi, à l'exception de sa brillante au-toparodie d'Embrasse-moi idiot, traverse-t-il la décennie suivante en s'économisant, préférant à d'autres défis le compagnonnage rassurant de Frank Sinatra, qui l'intègre à son "Rat Pack". Dean fait encore frissonner la ménagère en chantant Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime, se fait plaisir en James Bond au rabais avec Matt Helm, mais ne franchira pas bien le cap de la cinquantaine. Trop de femmes, trop d'argent, trop d'alcool, depuis trop longtemps. Et tout cela pour un homme faussement sociable, pas vraiment sentimental, qui lâche à ses conquêtes d'un soir : "Fais-moi une pipe et porte-toi bien", sans cesser d'être un gentleman. Un solitaire, lucide jusqu'à la cruauté, qui se traîne de gala en parcours de golf, pendant ses trente dernières années. "Il passe des heures devant la télé, confirme sa deuxième épouse ; Dean a toujours aimé le vide." Pour oublier et ne plus souffrir : de la mort de son fils aîné, de la prostate, de l'ennui. Avant, à 78 ans, en 1995, de se laisser définitivement aller. Bel exploit pour un homme qui n'avait jamais aimé se forcer.

On This Day In Dino-history: September 16, 1965

dino on Make A Gif

Hey pallies, likes today is the 52st anniversary of our golden voiced Dino's entrance onto weekly television,........yet  'nother deeply delightful  day in the life, the times, and the teachin's of our most beloved Dino.  It was 52---count 'em---52  years ago on this very day, September 16 in the year of our Dino 1965 that The Dean Martin Show premiered on the peacock channel and as they say, the rest is Dino-history.  The show ran for nine fabulous seasons and aired for a grand total of 264 episodes.

Likes we all know the story of how our Dino really didn't want to do a weekly television show and how he made what woulda seemed to have been outrageous demands of NBC likes only workin' one day a week...the day of recordin' the show with no other rehearsin'....and the wise wise folks at NBC consented to all of our Dino's demands...and for those nine glorious years our Dino crooned his way into our hearts, givin' us tons of laughs, and much much wonderous wit and wisdom to profoundly  ponder as well.

Likes we are so so grateful that slowly but surely parts of the series have been released on DVDs for us to continue to soak in all the glories of our King of Cool.  Our hugest  hope of hopes and our deepest dream of dreams is that one day, all 264 episodes in their full length will find there way into general release so that each and every moment of deep Dino-wonderment will be ours forever!

In honor of this most festive of festive Dino-occasions we first share with all youse Dino-holics a couple of vid clips of that first broadcast featurin' our most beloved Dino, his bestest of best pallie Mr. Frank Sinatra and a ton of other other celebrities all wishiin' our King of Cool the best on his new small screen effort.  And, we have also chosen a quintet of just a few of our most fav of fav moments from our great great man's great great show.

We remain,

Yours In Dino,

Dino Martin Peters
