Dean-Paul Martin and Olivia Hussey

Shakespearean tragedies of a Hollywood teen star

By PETER SHERIDAN IN LOS ANGELES

She blew through her first marriage to Dean Martin's wild son Dino

Hussey's first husband Dino Martin amassed a disturbing collection of machine guns and Hussey was shocked when police raided their Beverly Hills home and arrested him for unlicensed firearms.

"Within 20 minutes Frank Sinatra was on the phone, saying, 'Don't worry, it'll all be OK. We're talking care of it.' He must have pulled a few strings because the next day Dino was released and the charges were dropped."

Despite the fact that the US record charts are dominated by Rock and Roll, crooner Dean Martin has the number one tune with his biggest hit, “Everybody Loves Somebody”. It made it to #11 in the UK. The song had been around since 1949 and had been previously recorded by several well known artists without success. When Martin’s version pushed The Beatles’ “A Hard Day’s Night” out of the top spot on the Billboard chart, he sent telegrams to Elvis and to Frank Sinatra saying “I did it! I knocked ’em out of first place!”

Thursday, August 16, 2018

Dino sent a telegram to Elvis Presley that read, “If you can’t handle the Beatles, I’ll do it for you, pally.”

Hey pallies, likes today we are deeply delighted to rerun  yet 'nother remarkable reflection on that most delightful day in Dino-history when Billboard announced to the whole world that our most most beloved Dino had knocked the Beatles off the top of the charts with his coolest of cool croons, "Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime."

King of Cool Dean Martin Declares “Everybody Loves Somebody”

By Kaye Bassett Millar - July 28, 2016




In 1964, Dean Martin was finishing up recording his Dream with Dean album and had completed 11 songs. Albums always had 12 songs in the US, so Dean asked his conductor and piano player Ken Lane if he had something else for him. Ken said he had an old song he had written – “Everybody Loves Somebody.” Dean liked it and recorded it with just Ken, a bass player, a guitar and drums. The reaction to the cut on the album was so great that Dean went back into the studio and re-recorded it for a single release with a full orchestra and background singers. It was such a hit that it knocked “A Hard Day’s Night” out of its #1 spot on the charts. It became Dean’s theme song for his TV show the next year in 1965. The other version is still available on compilation albums.

When this knocked A Hard Day’s Night off the top of the US charts, Dino sent a telegram to Elvis Presley that read, “If you can’t handle the Beatles, I’ll do it for you, pally.”

“Everybody Loves Somebody”

Everybody loves somebody sometime
Everybody falls in love somehow
Something in your kiss just told me
That sometime is nowEverybody finds somebody someplace
There’s no telling where love may appear
Something in my heart keeps saying
My someplace is here
If I had it in my power
I’d arrange for every girl to have your charms
Then every minute, every hour
Everybody would find what I found in your arms

Everybody loves somebody sometime
And though my dreams were overdue
Your love made it all worth waiting
For someone like you

If I had it in my power
I’d arrange for every girl to have your charms
Then every minute, every hour
Everybody would find what I found in your arms

Everybody loves somebody sometime
And though my dreams were overdue
Your love made it all worth waiting
For someone like you

Iconic crooner Dean Martin notched his sole No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hit with "Everybody Loves Somebody." The song proved that middle-of-the-road music could still reign after Beatlemania had begun changing the course of pop earlier that year. "Everybody," in fact, dethroned the Fab Four's fifth No. 1, "A Hard Day's Night."

Book review of Olivia Hussey's The Girl on The Balcony; co-author Alexander Martin, the grandson of Dean Martin




by Always On Watch

(Note 1: all citations from the hardcover edition, released on July 31, 2018)

(Note 2: our Dino is referred to throughout as Dean Sr. or Dean because that's the way that the authors referred to our Dino; in this review, the word Dino refers to Dean Paul Martin, the name he took after his first divorce)

Olivia Hussey was catapulted to fame at the age of 17 when she starred in the award winning film film Romeo and Juliet (1968, directed by Franco Zefirelli).  To this day, many consider this film the definitive version of that particular Shakespearean tragedy.

In the course of becoming a Hollywood film star, Olivia Hussey met and married Dino, Jr., who, thanks to his father's fame and connections, moved in star-studded circles.  The marriage lasted from 1971-1978 and produced one child: the coauthor of this book, Alexander Martin.

What a happy day was the wedding day of the couple Dino, Jr., and Olivia Hussey!






The entire Martin clan on Dino's wedding day (1971)








L to R: Jeanne Martin, Dino Jr., Olivia Hussey, Dean Martin








Dean Martin, wearing his smile that lights up the world


Beginning with the chapter entitled “So I Became a Movie Star,” pages 96-100, and ending with the chapter entitled “Guns,” pages 154-162, fans of Dean Sr. will find much new information about  him in this book.  For example, Olivia Hussey shares this information about Dean Sr.'s separation from Jeanne, his wife of some 24 years:

“...I found myself heading to 601 Mountain Drive and a meeting with Dino's mother, Jeanne Martin.  Dino's father no longer lived there.  Some time before, Dean had apparently packed a small suitcase and, with his usual laconic charm, quipped something to the effect of 'Well, that's about enough for me' and left."
In the course of perusing this book, readers will see just how much Olivia Hussey loved and respected both her mother-in-law and father-in-law.  They not only welcomed her into the family upon her wedding to Dino Jr.; they remained friends even after Dino Jr. and Olivia divorced.  And the senior Martins' grandson Alexander Martin spent much of his youth with Grandmother Jeanne as Olivia Hussey pursued her acting career.

The two commentaries below are just two of the gems in this book, which every Dean Martin fan should read:

“[Dean Sr.] had the gift that only the extraordinarily talented had: He saw the world a little differently than the rest of us.  Over the years, I'd catch him looking or listening to something and see a double-take, a quick reexamination.  I'd see him connect that thing with something else.  I wouldn't have the foggiest idea what he saw or heard or what it made him think of – but then, I'd think, that's one reason I'm not Dean Martin” (132).

and

“I'll always remember the cadence of his voice.  It made me think of saloon doors swinging.  That was Dean Martin” (132).

Olivia Hussey recalls controversial 'Romeo and Juliet' role at 16, reveals personal tragedies

By Stephanie Nolasco | Fox News

In the book, Hussey alleged she became pregnant, but ended up having an abortion, a decision that broke her heart, but one she didn’t regret. She found comfort in the arms of her friend Dean Paul Martin, the son of Dean Martin. They married in 1971 and had one son Alex, now 45.

“When we met, I was 16,” recalled Hussey. “He came to London to see ‘Romeo and Juliet.’ He introduced himself to me… We became best friends. I started to fall in love with him after that whole tragedy... I realized that I loved him all along. “

Hussey said she found happiness with the Martin family. Dean Sr., in particular, never failed to make her laugh. While Hussey and Dean Paul split in 1979, they remained close friends until his tragic death in a plane crash in 1987 at age 35.

Ed's Epistle: NEW Dino Boook...Side By Side: Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis On TV and Radio


















Hey Pallies! Long time no post! Mr. DMP is correct as I'm in full time dad mode, and all time husband mode over the past 6 years or so. But I do check this swank Dino-site most all the time baby!

I just wanted to drop a line to notify the best Dino-blog in the webs regarding what I just found out today. A new book!
Side By Side: Dean Marting & Jerry Lewis on TV and Radio
Weighing in at 514 pages and listed price at $29.95!!

“A treasure trove for any fan of Dean and Jerry, packed with valuable information, behind-the-scenes stories, and a dizzying array of rare photos. I couldn’t put this book down!”
Leonard Maltin

Michael J. Hayde is the author of My Name’s Friday: The Unauthorized But True Story of Dragnet and the Films of Jack Webb, Chaplin’s Vintage Year: The History of the Mutual-Chaplin Specials and Flights of Fantasy: The Unauthorized but True Story of Radio & TV’s Adventures of Superman.

 Overview:
"Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis were the most successful comedy team of the 20th century, but if you've only seen them in movies, you haven't really seen them.

For years their only legacy was 16 starring films that shoehorned them into predictable situations far removed from the mutual affection and uninhibited slapstick that captivated audiences. That changed when their starring appearances on The Colgate Comedy Hour were released to home video. Fans of old-time radio have also discovered their fine work in that medium. Television and radio gave the team freedom to improvise, as well as showcase favorite night club routines.
More than a chronicle of classic comedy, Side By Side tells the Martin & Lewis story: two friends whose individual ambitions gradually drove a wedge between them that carried into their work. It recounts in detail their legendary feuds and final split, and equally legendary reunions."

Hussey and her first husband Dino Martin.
Hussey and her first husband, Dean Martin’s son Dino.

That memory is half hers, half her eldest son Alex Martin’s, who co-wrote the chapters that Hussey couldn’t bring herself to type. The hardest concerned the death in 1987 of her first husband, Dino Martin, who flew from LA to Britain to beg her for a date. She said no. But a year later, Hussey moved to California, and eventually said yes.


 Hussey found herself at the centre of a celebrity shift. Dino was the eldest son of the Rat Pack’s Dean Martin. Dinner at the in-laws meant meeting everyone from Sammy Davis Jr and Truman Capote to Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Meanwhile, Dino surprised his bride by bringing the Bee Gees home for dinner. She answered the door in her pyjamas.

Danny G's Sunday Serenade with Dino: Buttercup A Golden Hair"




Well, say there, pals! 

What it is! 

What it was! 

What it might have been!
 Haha!! 

Man...I thinks all this heat has finally gots to me!

 I've found myself babblin'...on & on...incoherently...all week! 

Maybe my brain is gettin' a wee bit toasted, pals! Haha!!
 Actually...pickeled would be more appropriate! 
Ha! 

OK...'nough foolishness.

 Let's talk a little bit 'bout what WAS & let's get to the Dino-tunes! 

Now, pallies...I simply HAD to use this week's COOL COOL Dino-jam for today's Serenade!

 It's been on my mind for a few weeks, now. 

Today, August 5th, marks the very unpleasant anniversary of the passin' of a very special lady...a very special girl-pallie of our Dino's.

 Marilyn Monroe. 

 It's been 56 years since she took her final bow. 

Shame, pals. 
Was a fun & talented young soul. 

But...I believe in celebratin' what WAS...rather than cryin' over what WASN'T. 

"Buttercup A Golden Hair" is set to her & our pals flick, that never came to be..."Something's Got to Give". 

It featured Dino alongside a very lovely & naked Marilyn! 
Haha!!
 Fresh!

 Looks like it would have been a FUN FUN Dino-flick for sure! 

Such a shame it just wasn't meant to be, my friends.
 They both looked so good in this vid & youse could see the chemistry & friendship they shared. 

Bittersweet to watch, pallies. 

BUT...let's be thankful for what's we got, pals! 
A Great Great tune & vid that's PERFECTO for a Great Great Summer night!

 R.I.P MM.
 Hope your STILL bein' fresh!

  Enjoy!
