Dean Martin & Frank Sinatra: Nothing But A Good Time!

Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra

This photo is from a show that Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra did at the Resorts International Hotel in Atlantic City on August 24, 1980. It's fantastic to see that even in their older years these hip cats still knew how to to have a good time. Hope you all have a cool and swingin' weekend. Cheers!

What a job!! Gosh... can you really call that work?

I don't think those two (along with Sammy) ever lost their comedic timing and spark. I'm really not sure if there will ever be a duo (or threesome) like them ever again.

My dad have a collection of Frank Sinatra's photos, albums and other memorabilias. Thanks for sharing this cool pic. I'll show this to him when I visit him this weekend.

Fab shot! You have to love that it looks like they had the workings for a mini-bar on stage with them - that just screams Rat Pack to me :)

Wishing you a fantastic weekend, too!!!
♥ Jessica

I saw Frank and Dean and Sammy in Seattle at the start of their revival tour. This was the tour that Dean Martin did not finish. There were feminist groups around the arena protesting the fact that Sinatra and Co. used to call women broads and that they drank a lot. I am sure the boys got a good laugh out of that. Dean was his usual charming and suave self. It was easy to tell that he was not enjoying himself to the full and I was not surprised to hear later that all he really wanted to do during the tour was to " go home". Sammy Davis Jr. was the real all round talent and he sung, quipped and danced his way around the stage.
However: As soon as Frank Sinatra came on stage to the opening bars of 'where or when' everyone paid attention to the master and all else was forgotten. Although Seattle was really just a warm up and rehearsal for the rest of the tour the Sinatra magic was there for all to see. He put everyone in the shade.

Wonderful atmosphere to begin the week-end, thanks.

Protege said...

How do you get hold of these great pictures?;)
Wishing you a lovely weekend as well.;)

Bruce Coltin said...

Any idea when Dean started wearing glasses while up on on stage? It's a good picture.

Mondo said...

Love Franks haircut I'm going for one of those when I get to that ripe old age

Cool and Classic Keith! Great pic. Have a nice weekend.

Maggi said...

They were like fine wines, even better with age!

Keith said...

Hey Dad. I wish my job was like that.

I agree with you. I think these two and Sammy always had that cool magic that made them so special. I don't think we'll see it again.

Keith said...

Hey Leah. Thanks. I hope your dad likes this photo. That's cool about your dad's Sinatra collection. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Jessica. Thanks. Glad you enjoyed this photo. I love that they've got their own bar right up there with them. I need one of those.

Keith said...

Hey Lance. Thanks for commenting. Glad you enjoy their music.

Keith said...

Thanks Glay. Glad you like them.

Thanks La Flore. I thought it was a cool way to get the weekend started.

Keith said...

Hey James. Wow. Thanks for sharing that. That is so cool. One of my main regrets in life is that I never got to see these guys in concert. I would have loved that. I often wonder how they would deal living in such a PC World. It bad then, but even worse now. It's a shame how things turned out with Dino. Sammy could definitely do it all. Sinatra is the Chairman of the Board after all.

Keith said...

Hey Protege. Thanks. I'm so glad you enjoy these photos. I find them all over the place. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Bruce. Thanks. I'm really not sure about that. I've been wondering that myself.

Hey Dave. Yeah, I could see getting the Sinatra 'do.

Keith said...

Thanks Richard. Glad you liked it. Enjoy your weekend. Cheers!

Hey Maggi. Thanks. I like the way you described them.

Keith said...

Hey Phoebe. You are so right about that.

Wolf Boy said...

My granddad wears glasses like Dino.

Keith said...

Hey Wolf. That's cool.

Erika said...

Alone these two are stars; together they're unstoppable - love this picture, and the fact that it was taken at Atlantic City! :)

Keith said...

Hey Erika. Thanks. These two stars are so amazing. I would love to have been at this show all those years ago. Cheers!

Hey Carrie. Thanks. Enjoy your weekend.

Keith said...

Hey FilmFather. LOL I didn't know if anybody would realize that's where I got that title from. For some reason that came into my mind with this picture. I would love to have heard them cover that song.

Keith said...

Hey Gabbi. Thanks so much. I'm happy you liked it. I hope you're having a great day. Enjoy the weekend.

Keith said...

Thanks Cathy. Cheers!

Sam said...

True entertainers inb every sense of the word - I would have loved to have seen one of their shows! My Mum and Dad were lucky enough to go see a nightclub show with Sammy Davis Jnr in Sydney when he toured here in the '60s. That sounded pretty darn good too!

Keith said...

Hey Fashion. That is so true. I hope I have that much fun when I'm their age.

Keith said...

Hey Sam. Thanks. I know what you mean. I would love to have seen these guys perform at least once. That would have been a dream come true. That's so awesome about your parents. Sammy is another person I wish I could have seen. It would have been fantastic to have see Dino, Frankie & Sammy all together at once.

Tonygirl said...

FANTASTIC PIC. THESE TWO ARE LEGENDS AND NO ONE CAN EVER REPLACE THEM!

Keith said...

Hey Mel. You are so right about that!
