Dean Martin Having Fun With Shirley MacLaine & Frank Sinatra

frank_shirley_dino

I love this picture of Dean Martin with Shirley MacLaine and Frank Sinatra. These three look like they are having such a great time together. Dino's got a smoke in one hand, while his other arm is around Shirley's waist. Frank and Shirley both have drinks. All three have big grins on their faces. I wonder if Dino told them a joke. I bet it would have been so much fun hanging out with this crowd. Cheers!

Hey pallie DMP. I'm sure it was Dino telling the jokes. He was after all the one with the best sense of humor. Cheers!

Neat picture Keith - it might be at the time when they did Ocean's 11.

Thanks for posting it.

I love this photo. They certainly look as if they are having a great time. I wish I could have been Shirley. I would be in heaven.

Keith said...

Hey Glenn. That's so true. It might have been. I'm glad you liked it. It was cool seeing these three together. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Phoebe. I'm glad you like it. I can understand you wanting to be Shirley here. Remember that she had a thing for Dino. Cheers!

Shirley has said that Dino was the funniest man she ever met. Did she and Dino ever have a fling?

Keith said...

Hey Carol. Thanks for the comments. It was nice hearing from you. Yeah, Shirley's often talked about Dino' sense of humor. Shirley had a crush on Dino, but it never went anywhere.

That's one thing I always notice when I watch footage of members of the rat pack having a good time - it seems so genuine, not put on at all. Frank and the boys were actually having the time of their lives... and it was contagious!!

Keith said...

Hey Gilligan. Thanks for the comments. That's so true. You never get the feeling that it's just an act. You really feel like all these cool cats are actually having a good time. They are really living life to the fullest. Cheers!

Finally got into your comment page Keith. I saw a clip once of the Rolling Stones on the Dean Martin show and they did I Just Wanna Make Love To You. It was definitely not Rat Pack material, and after the performance Dino sort of ragged on them a bit.

Later Keith had some short words (but not to rude) about Dean's remarks. Do you know anything about this incident? Some trivia you can unearth for us?

And that is one great smile Dean Martin had.

See ya... Bill

Hey Bill. Thanks for the comments. It was great hearing from you. I hope things work out for you.

I did find this clip of Dean Martin introducing the Rolling Stones. Is this what you were talking about?

That's the only thing I can think of.

Cheers!

Hey Mel. Thanks. I love this photo. There were many girls that did have a crush on either Dino or Frank.

Tonygirl said...

Shirley had a huge crush on Dean.

Keith said...

Hey Mel. Yep, she definitely did.
