Of Course His Birthday Cake was Shaped Like a Bottle of Scotch
Dean Martin was given a surprise party for his 44th birthday at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas. Unfortunately it didn’t end up being a surprise though because he showed up early! The highlights of the party were actor Peter Lawford playing waiter, Eddie Fisher singing a special song, “I Love Dino But Not Like My Liz,” and an enormous birthday cake shaped like a bottle of scotch. The guest list included Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr, Joey Bishop, Vic Damone, Marilyn Monroe, and Elizabeth Taylor.
