Favorite Album Covers: Dean Martin In The Silencers

Here's another one of my favorite Dean Martin album covers. This is the the soundtrack for The Silencers, the first of the Matt Helm spy capers. This cover really fits the bill of what this particular flick is all about. It sets the right mood for the entire franchise. I love these wonderful spy spoofs of the 60's. Dean Martin is essentially playing Matt Helm as Dino himself. That's one of the things I get a kick out of in the movies. He saves the world and seduces hot chicks at the same time. Dino's also not above breaking into song during the movie. I really do love this album cover. Dino is one lucky dude. I'd love to be in the middle of a bed with lots of beautiful babes. I plan to cover all these Matt Helm spy flicks at some point in the future. I'll obviously start with this one since it's the first of the four. I hope you enjoy this cover too. Let me know what you think. Cheers!

I love that movie. It's my favorite of the series. The title song is so amazing. Plus I'd love to be on that bed with Dino. I know, I'm such a naughty girl. ;-)

NSF: Thanks. Like the say, the ladies loved Dino and Dino loved the ladies. This is my 2nd favorite of the franchise.

Steve: Yeah, it is. I've always liked this one. Oh yeah, I would love to have been in Dino's shoes.

Hey pallie DMP. That's how I am. It's not my favorite of the franchise. That's Murderer's Row. It's definitely such a cool album cover. I'm sure Dino did have lots of fun. I wonder if he got randy with any of these chicks.

Hey Jeremy and Paul. Thanks pallies. Glad you both dig the cover. I do think it fits Dino and those flicks perfectly.
