My Favorite Dean Martin Co-Stars: Daliah Lavi

One of my favorite of Dean Martin's sexy female co-stars is Daliah Lavi. The Israeli actress and singer starred alongside Dino in The Silencers from 1966. I'm bewitched by her stunning and exotic beauty. Plus I could listen to her luscious accent for hours. These are some pictures from The Silencers. I plan to post other pictures of her in the future. I hope you like these. Let me know what you think. Cheers!

Hey pallie DMP. Thanks. Glad you liked them. I thought they were pretty awesome myself. Yeah, I agree with you on Daliah. What a babe for Dino to make some time with. ;-)

Wonderful pictures. She's one of my favorite of the women that co-starred with Dino too. I always thought she was very beautiful. She was quite good in some other films as well, such as Casino Royale. Did you ever hear any of her music?

I'm glad you liked them. These were some great shots from the movie. She is one hot babe. I liked her in the other movies I've seen her in. Yes, I've heard her sing. I don't understand what she's saying, but the songs are still cool.

Great pictures. Can remember seeing The Silencers at a very young age and didn't know anything about Lavi at that time. One of those actresses that the camera simply loved.

Hey Steve. Glad you liked them. I first saw The Silencers years ago. I've seen it many times since them. I'm always enthralled by Daliah. The camera definitely loved this exotic beauty.

Hi Keith in my youth at age 8 at the beginning of the 70's I grew up with Daliah Lavi on German television! She was and still is a BIG star in Germany with her songs! I love her very much and her songs are timeless classics. At that time I didn't know that she had film career before her singing career. She did some great movies! At the end of the 70's she married a Florida based doctor and left Germany to live in the States. Sometimes she came back to Europe to sing again in German, French or Italian shows and she has aged very well! I wonder if she is still with her husband the doctor?

Hey Mirko. Thanks for the comments. I knew that she had become a musical star in Germany. I've seen a few video clips online of her. She's got a great voice. I like what I've heard. When I first discovered her in movies, I had no idea she was a singer. It was only when I started searching out to find out what became of her that I found that out. I don't know if she's still up with the doctor or not. I actually didn't know where she lived these days. Thanks. I've seen recent pictures of her and she has aged well. Definitely one of the great beauties of the 60's/70's. She had that gorgeous dark and exotic look to her, plus I always liked her accent.
