Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis Were Great Together

I'm not sure how many of you saw Jerry Lewis receive the the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the Oscars recently. I wish the tribute video to him had been much longer. They only touched briefly on his long and successful career. Seeing them mention his partnership with Dean Martin has really inspired me to see some of those awesome Martin-Lewis comedies again. It's been quite some time since I've seen any of them. These movies were actually the first movies I ever watched that starred Dean Martin. I hope you like these pictures I'm posting here. I really dig this lighter. Man, I'd love to have one of those. Cheers!

Hey pallie Keith, nice trib to our Dino and the kid....that lighter is cool...but the ones I so Dinodesire is the one that our Dino gave to the frankie 'cause frankie was his man best for marriage #3 to Cathy with the candified K....you know the one that has the naughty Dinoinscription....

Keith said...

Hey pallie DMP. Thanks. Glad you liked it. I want to at some point do a really good post on the history of Martina and Lewis. Oh yeah. I know which lighter you are talking about. Yeah, that would be a cool one to have. Cheers!

Hey Keith!
Damn, I didn't watch the Oscars, so I didn't hear about that humanitarian award either.. Haha, our school received a humanitarian award too ^^
I love comedies and the two guys look really goofy (in a good way) and funny in the pictures, so I will like to check a film of them out! Any recommendations?
The lighter is cool too! Where can you get it? I don't smoke, but I think lighters are cool. And you never know when you want to light something ^^

Keith said...

Hey Cate. I flipped through the Oscars. I made sure I saw Jerry up there. I'm hoping that someone will put it up on YouTube. Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis were great today. They ruled the radio, tv, movies & nightclubs for a decade. They had so many good movies. One of my favorites is Artists & Models.

Here's the link to a site that recommends 10 of them in order.

I'm not sure when that lighter was made. I guess back when they were together. Someone recommended that I check on ebay for one. I do think it's a really cool lighter. I smoke cigars, but not cigarettes. Thanks for your comments. Cheers!

joe said...

I love that header. Although all that cigarette smoke would make me kind of nauseous...

Couture Carrie said...

Lovely tribute, darling! Hope you are having a great day too!

Allison said...

I love these photos - they both look very fun :) I'm sure somebody will put the humanitarian award footage up on YouTube!

And yeah, you definitely should check out New York sometime when you get the chance...there's something for everyone there :) And your poker night sounds like a great guys night!

Have a great rest of your night!

Hey Joe. Thanks for the comments. Glad you liked it. I'm more of a cigar man myself. I grew up around a lot of smokers so smoke really doesn't bother me. Cheers!

Keith said...

Thanks Carrie. Glad you liked it. I do want to do a proper tribute post to them in the future. I had a great day. Take care. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Allison. Thanks for the comments. Glad you liked these photos. I definitely want to post more of the Martin-Lewis duo. They were such a great team. I'll have to check back to see about that Oscar footage. Maybe somebody will get it up there.

I definitely hope to visit the Big Apple at some point in my life. I've always thought it was be an exciting place to visit. I am glad you had a fun time with your parents. I had a lot of fun at poker night with my buds. It's always fun when we get together.

Take care. Good night. Cheers!

Keith said...

Thanks Scott. I'm glad you liked these. I thought they were good ones of Dino and Jerry. Cheers!

Keith said...
