Does Anyone Care About Dean Martin?

Hey pallies, with the great release of the new Dinovinyl as come the beginnin's of more Dinodissin'. Our Dino is becomin' more popular then ever, and I guess we oughta expect that Dinodissers will be comin' out of the woodwork. Well are true Dinoholics know how absurd this Harold dude is with his provocative Dinoquestion. You will find my Dinoresponse at the end of this blog post. I strongly encourage all my Dinopallies to click on the link connected to the title post and leave a piece of your Dinomind as well! Such Dinodisrespect has to stop!!!!!

Does Anyone Care About Dean Martin?
Posted by Harold Goldberg on September 5, 2007
Dean Martin, the crooner, half of Martin and Lewis, Rat-Packer extraordinaire, had a resurgence some years ago when Nick Tosches wrote Dino, a deep, dark biography of the man who was once the highest paid entertainer in the country.

Yesterday, USA Today's Mike Snider reviewed three Dean Martin DVDs (click the links to see clips!):

The Young Lions - Dean "saved his career in this adaptation of Irwin Shaw's war novel."

Who Was That Lady - Tony Curtis and Dean "pose as FBI agents, which culminates in booze, blondes and humiliation."

Kiss Me, Stupid - This was originally Billy Wilder's "career nadir." But it's now a "well-regarded satire" that casts Martin as his public persona - "Dino."

I know there's a new CD which lauds Martin's singing, featuring everyone from Kevin Spacey (he can sing!) to Big Bad VooDoo Daddy. But do you still care about Dean Martin's movies?

Hey pallie, no disrespect meant, but what a question to ask. Does anyone still care, do I still care 'bout Dinoflicks? The answer is yes, 'cause there are millions of fans who still proclaim our Dino as their King of Cool and one way of gettin' to groove on our Dino is his wonderful work in films. If you click on my url you will go to a blog dedicated to Dino, his life, his times, his legacy, which still grows today. Never was, never will be anyone as cool as the King of Cool. Oh, to return to the days when Dino walked the earth!

People still care about Dino. They never stopped caring about him. The King of Cool isn't making some sort of comeback. He never faded away. Cool never dies. Sure he's more popular now than in years. Many new fans are discovering Dino, his style and attitude. I'm so sick of all these dudes dissin' Dino. They just don't understand what cool, hip, and randy look like. We know that Dino is the epitome of all of them. Hail Dino. Long Live Dinopalliedom. To live in the Dinoworld would be the greatest thing.

How nice to know that he knows and loves our Dino like we do!

You bet they do, esp with some of those gorgeous Martin and Lewis films reissued on DVD. And blogs like yours, too! Keep up the good work, and so glad you mentioned "Kiss Me, Stupid."

I love Dean as an actor. The fact that they continue to get released on these fairly high profile releases prove that other people do as well...why can't people just accept that Dean is getting more and more respect and love each year. It has been a long time coming
