The Dean

Hey pallies, likes seein' how yesterday was the 66th anniversary of our most beloved Dino's marriage to Miss Jeanne Biegger, on a lark, we thought it woulda be kinda cool to use google image search to seee what sorta poses of our Dino and Jeanne might turn up.  We were delighted to find a number of images of our main man and his main woman includin' the  image below that we found on the web presence of none other then the Chicago Tribune.

Likes we totally totally grooves on the tag of the candid that the Tribune gives to this powerful pose that we ain' remembered seein' before, "The Dean...and we truly truly loves that Dino-buddha-grin on our King of Cool's face...likes indeed the pair seem to be havin' a great night on the town.  The description added to the image states "Singer Dean Martin and his wife, former model Jeanne Biegger, in 1957."

We thanks the Chicago Tribune for honorin' our Dino in this way and to view this in it's original source, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-report.  Dino-crazed, DMP

On This Day In Dino-history: September 1, 1949


Hey pallies, likes on this day, September 1 in the year of our Dino 1949,  the weddin' bells did chime for our most beloved Dino and his beauty queen bride Miss Jeanne Biegger. Dino and Miss Jeanne, wife numero duo, tied the knot at  the pad of Mr. Herman Hover.

As we, with the deepest of devotion,  remember this day of absolute bliss for our Dino, ilovedinomartin shares with you a post that Deanager Catie shared at her tumblr blog, "They always look better at night..," on this day of Dino-significance, last in 2012.  Our Catie combines an outstandin' weddin' pix of the beau-ti-ful couple with some potently powerful  prose scribed by Mr. Jerry Lewis from his magnificant Dino-bio, "Dean and Me: A Love Story."

Just likes we  totally totally  grooves to be likes readin' these kind of glorious Dino-details....and these reflections from Mr. Lewis notin' the extremely close relationship that our most beloved Dino had with his bestest of best pallie Jerry.

ilovedinomartin sez our thanks to Miss Catie for creatin' this Dino-memory on her tumblr account, sure to bring many of today's nouveau hipsters to the keen knowledge and awesome adulation of our great great man. Dino-rememberin', DMP btw pallies, if you clicks on the tag of this Dino-gram you will be taken to the Dean Martin Timeline...an essential pad for all those who are deeply devoted to our Dino!




You just got out of a marriage,” I said. “What the fuck are you rushing into another one for?”

He just stared at me, shocked that I had hit the issues on the button. I hurried to explain myself. “Forgive me, Paul.” I said. “Jeanne’s a great girl, and I think she would follow you to the ends of the earth. I know she would wait until you were ready. And there are four kids to think about.”

Dean thought for a moment. “Listen Jer,” he said. “You know me better than anyone, so what I say is between us. I do worry about my kids. But this feels so right. So strong.”

I nodded, finally understanding that he was really in love, and probably for the first time. “It’s your life, pal,” I told him. “And you have to do what’s best for you. You’ve always taken care of your kids; now it’s your turn to take care of yourself. Everything’ll fall into place.”

He threw his arms around me in a bear hug and whispered into my ear: “Thanks, Jer.”

As it turned out, Jeanne was the best thing that ever happened to Dean.

 We found much pleasure in learnin' that this dude's daddy-o loved the "Dean Martin - Jerry Lewis comedies" and that dude himself as we proclaim in our opennin' tag to this post  was really into "Dean Martin over the Beatles."  And we digs how this guy shares gettin' into our Dino as swingin' spyster Matt Helm as "a kid"....likes what coulda be cooler then that!

Here's hopin' that all youse Dino-holic pallies enjoys this bit of Dino-diversion this very Dino-day.  We sez our thanks to unknown blogger dude and thanks him for doin' his part to share some Dino-devotion with the larger world.  To checks this out in it's original format, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-report.  Dino-delightedly, DMP

Matt Helm's Rat Pack Wheels

My fascination with the early Sixties, before everything around here went to hell in a VW bus, is well documented.  Give me the Space Race, the New Frontier, topless-only Playboy centerfolds, and Dean Martin over the Beatles (let's leave the Stones out of this argument, because it won't help me make my point).

My father loves Dean Martin - Jerry Lewis comedies.  Go figure, he's not French.  If one was being shown saturday afternoon on Channel 9, he and I watched it.  So I was already familiar with the tipsy smoothie bit by the time I discovered Matt Helm.  Dean's secret agent was supposedly America's answer to James Bond, but it seemed more like the answer to Maxwell Smart, and a precursor to a certain International Man of Mystery. With all the busty women, lux interiors, secret compartments, in-car video phones, and gunplay what's not to like for a kid like me.  Dean Martin did four Matt Helm flicks, each a lesser version of its predecessor.  If you are willing to spare only a little time, watch the first film, "The Silencers".



Heck, just watching that trailer gives you a clear idea how much Mike Meyers ripped Helm off with his retro-anachronistic Austin Powers.  And in none of Helm's four films will you hear the words "groovy" or "far out".

In case you were wondering what ol' Dino might've driven when rolling onto the Paramount backlot to get made up for Helm, he probably drove this space age beaut, a 1962 Ghia L6.4, lightly customized by Hollywood car smith George Barris for Mr. Martin.













This was his, or so we're told.  Italian coachwork by Ghia, power train by Chrysler.  Real leather.  Real wood.  All style.  Early sixties style.

Living Like Sinatra: The Ultimate Rat Pack Weekend in Palm Springs

By Jim Dobson Contributor

I was a pretty lucky kid. I remember growing up in the casino business where my father worked, and being surrounded by a lot of legendary people. From family gatherings with Frank Sinatra, to hanging out backstage with Sammy Davis Jr. at every one of his concerts, it was an exciting life for a freckled faced, innocent kid. I would come to meet the members of the Rat Pack purely by the company we kept. As a wide eyed teenager I got to know them fairly well; Dean Martin never really drank, Sammy Davis was more spiritual than you could imagine and Frank was always entertaining beautiful women. They were a part of my life growing up in the 60’s and 70’s in Lake Tahoe, Nevada.
