Dean Martin At Work

Here's a picture of Dean Martin working with his assistant Mack Gray at a rehearsal in 1958. I wonder what exactly Dino is putting into that envelope. It would be interesting to know. I'm not sure about any of you, but I would love to have been his assistant. It would have been such an awesome job.

Hmmm, what could be in the envelope....signed 8x10 glossies of himself? Incriminating photos of Jerry Lewis? (depending on when the picture was taken) Divorce papers? My bet is on sheet music for an album he was working on.

Is that three ash trays I count? Definitely a sign of the times ...

Keith said...

Hey Rev. Thanks for the ideas. I liked them all. I'm figuring it was probably sheet music too. Hope your week is going well. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Janet. You are very welcome. Glad you liked it. Cheers!

Keith said...

Thanks Terence. I sure would have loved that job.

Keith said...

Hey Phoebe. I don't blame ya. Just think of what doors working for Dino would have opened.

Keith said...

Hey Jim. Yeah, there are three ash trays on the table. Definitely a lot of smoking going on. Reminds me of growing up.

Keith said...

Hey pallie DMP. Thanks. Glad you liked it. I would love to be his assistant. That would be my kind of job. I found it in one of my Google searches. I've had it in my collection for awhile, but hadn't posted it yet.

I really like that you're getting to see a more causal side of Dean here. I don't recall seeing too many snaps of him a white t-shirt, yet like everything he put on, it looks terrific on him. Cool shot, Keith!


Wishing you a marvelous Wednesday,
♥ Jessica

I'd like to think that they are copies of a script, but for some reason my mind tells me - legal papers lol. And I think that job would have suited you perfectly ;)

Erika said...

I think that being an assistant to any celebrity would definitely be interesting! :)

Keith said...

Hey Jessica. Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed this pic. I like seeing the more casual side of Dino. It's cool to see that other part of him. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Dapper Kid. Thanks. That's a good possibility. Yeah, I do think I would be good at that job. I would definitely love it.

Keith said...

Hey Erika. I know what you mean. I would just hope it was one that I liked and that I got along with.

Gabbi said...

Amazing photograph as always Keith... I"m voting for sheet music. I ♥ Dino.

Amy said...

hmm papers for the mafia?

Keith said...

Hey Gabbi. Thanks. That's what I'm figuring it is.

Keith said...

Hey Amy. Who knows.

Chessa! said...

hmmm..I am so intrigued as to what it could be. I think it would be pretty fabulous to have been his or any of the "Rat Pack's" assistan...

Keith said...

Hey Chessa. Yeah, it would be neat to know what this was. I definitely would love to have been his or one of the Rat Packer's assistants. If I wasn't Dino's, I'd love to really be Sammy's.
