Dean Martin & Sammy Davis Jr. At The Friars Club

I love this picture of Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. with boxing champ Sugar Ray Leonard. This photo was taken in 1984. I'm not sure who the other guy in the picture is. Any ideas? The fellas were at the Friars Club in New York City. I hope everybody will have a fantastic weekend. Cheers!

I always loved those roasts.

Where do you find these awesome pictures? I'm jealous!

Great photo, I bet Dean had a tale or to, to share, as you know he was a boxer 'Kid Crochet'

Literally a line up of heavy-hitters

Protege said...

Love the way they are all dressed; nothing beats the look of a man in an evening suit.;))
Have a great weekend as well;)

Bruce Coltin said...

I don't know who the other guy is either. Don't you wish you could google a face? Actually, we probably will be able to do that before too long.

Keith said...

Hey Wolf. Me too.

Keith said...

Hey Nubia. Thanks. I'm so glad you enjoyed this picture. I don't often post photos of these guys in the 80's.

Keith said...

Hey Jami. Thanks. I find them all over the place, plus some are sent to me by friends.

Keith said...

Hey Gingey. Oh yeah. Dino did all sorts of things in his youth, such as card sharking, boxing, you name it. I'm sure there are so many stories.

Keith said...

Hey Janet. Thanks for commenting. Enjoy your Friday and weekend. Cheers!

Keith said...

Thanks Insider. Cheers!

Keith said...

Thanks Dave. I so agree.

Keith said...

Hey Protege. Thanks for commenting. These are some nice dressed men. Enjoy your weekend.

Keith said...

Hey Bruce. Thanks for commenting. That would be good to be able to do. I don't know if he's connected to the Friars Club or what.

Don't you just love besides them obviously looking aged in this photo, in contrast to your normal ones, if you base it on their wardrobe alone, you wouldn't dare to think it was 80's. I love this.....

Keith said...

Hey JFK. Thanks for commenting. I know what you mean. They are obviously in their older years, but still dressed classy as ever.

MeryJane said...

Thanks Erika. I adore Sammy too.

Thanks a lot for your comment in my blog¡It's cute¡

Couture Carrie said...

Fab photo ~ looks like it was much earlier than 1984, maybe b/c it's B&W? Love the tuxes!

Cheryl Lynn said...

Once again, just a fantastic era in entertainment.

Have a great one!

Keith said...

Hey RL. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Carrie. Thanks for commenting. I've got some other photos around this same event. They were all mostly done in black & white. It's got to be in the 80's anyway because they are looking much older. Sammy would be dead in like 6 years from this photo.

Keith said...

Thanks Cheryl Lynn. I'm so glad you enjoyed the photo. Cheers!

Allison said...

Keith said...

Hey Allison. Thanks. I'm so glad you liked this photo. I agree with you about them. Enjoy your weekend. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Janet. Thanks on both accounts.

Keith said...

Dustjacket Attic said...

Cool dudes.

You have a great weekend too, take care,

Gabbi said...

Great photo, I love the expression on their faces. Especially Sugar Ray, you can tell he's so happy to be there with them.

Jessica Cangiano said...

Fantastic picture! I wouldn't have pegged it as being from the 80s, had you not said so. The power of a classic tux and B&W photography, eh? :)

Wishing you a stellar weekend, too, Keith!
♥ Jessica

Keith said...

Hey Dustjacket. Thanks. Enjoy your weekend. Cheers!

Keith said...

Thanks Gabbi. Glad you liked it. I don't blame Sugar Ray. I would be so thrilled to be in the presence of such cool icons.

Keith said...

Hey Jessica. Thanks. Glad you liked it. The big thing that gives it away as the 80's is looking at both Dino and Sammy. They both are showing their age. Plus Sammy would die at the start of the 90's.

mom & son said...

hi keith!
how are you?
wow, that pic is almost as old as me.
awesome!

Keith said...

Hey Mom. Thanks. Glad you liked it. It's from the year before my sis was born. I'm doing well. Take care. Cheers!

Keith said...

I found out that the other man in the photo is William B. Williams. He was a dj in New York. He was also a friend of the gang.
