Hey pallies, likes tomorrow is simply one of the hugest days in all of Dino-history. It was on November 17, 1951 that Dino's wife numbero duo, Jeanne gave birth to her first born son and named him Dino Martin Jr. Dino Jr. was our most beloved Dino's most beloved boypallie...the apple of his eye...and likes, of course, we all know that tragic death that Dino Jr. faced, and how our great man's great life demised from that point on.
Well such a significant event in the life and times of our Dino certainly deserves more then just a passin' mention, so on this day before we remember the birthin' of our Dino's most devoted prodigy, ilovedinomartin shares a post with you puttin' the accent on Dino Martin Jr. stunnin' role in his biggest big screen effort, "Players," a totally totally underated flick of it's day. Dino Jr. co-starred with Ali MacGraw in this 1979, starring as a professional tennis player, for which he was rightfullly nominated for a Golden Globe Award as Best New Star of the Year—Male.
Above is a stunnin' pose of Dino Jr. and Miss MacGraw taken from "Players," as well as below, a 10 minute trib vid from this flick. Dino Jr.'s scenes with Ali show that Dino Jr. was truly heir apparent to the King of Cool's throne. As one watches Dino's Jr. amorin' of Miss MacGraw, one sees that Dino Jr. was absolutely his father's son and had all his daddy-o's amazin' charmin' cooin' cool.
And, likes as an added bonus, ilovedinomartin is also includin' a rare live interview of Dino Jr. conducted 'round the time of the releasin' of "Players." The only version that I could find was one conducted in English, but translated into Italiano. But, likes if you listen carefully you can hear Dino Jr. amazin'ly reflective and insightful answers.
ilovedinomartin salutes Dino Martin Jr.....the ultra beautiful and ubber talented boypallie of our ultra beautiful and ubber talented Dino! Dino-honorin', DMP
