Dean Martin With Audrey Hepburn & Jerry Lewis

I hope you enjoy this photo. I know I do. I like seeing Audrey Hepburn smiling at Jerry Lewis as he looks at her. I wonder though what's going through Dean Martin's mind. What do you think? I also really like what Dino is wearing here.

Sammy Davis Jr. Takes A Photo

Say cheese for Sammy!


This photo comes courtesy of my good pallie Mia.

This is a video about Sammy's love of photography. I thought it was really fascinating to see how passionate he was about taking photos. I hope you'll check it out.

P.S. I've been considering doing a little revamping of my blog . I did change the colors used on my blog as well as my header. I'm fooling around until I'm satisfied with the results. What do you think right now of the changes?

Does anyone here, with a blog on Blogger, use a template other than the ones Blogger has for us? I've seen templates on various websites that you can use for Blogger. I wasn't sure how well they worked on Blogger. I didn't want to mess up my blog. Any suggestions on sites with good templates if I did want to change mine? Also I might want to change up my header? What site did you use to help you with your header? Thanks for any advice at all you can offer on revamping a blog. I appreciate it.

Fonzworth Bentley Called The Hip Hop Sammy Davis Jr.


I'm always intrigued to find those men of today who are cool and stylish. They hearken back to the Rat Pack era. Fonzworth Bentley has got to be one of those gentlemen. I'm not sure how many of you have ever heard of him. Mr. Bentley's real name is Derrick Watkins. He first burst on the scene as the personal assistant of Sean "Diddy" Combs. Bentley would make appearances on Diddy's reality series Making The Band 2. He also appeared in quite a few music videos for various artists. Fonzworth Bentley is the host of the MTV series From G's to Gents. He has also released both an album C.O.L.O.U.R.S. and a book Advance Your Swagger.

Mr. Bentley has been called by himself and others a hip hop version of Sammy Davis Jr. He definitely sees that hip cat Sammy as one of his role models. He speaks quite often of the fashion and style of the Harlem Renaissance. It's great to see a modern day man doing his part to revive the art of the gentleman.
I'm posting a lot of pictures of Fonzworth Bentley so you get a chance to see what he's all about. I'm also posting the music video of his song Everybody (which features Kanye West & Andre 3000) and a video of him on the set for a Giant magazine shoot.

The Adventures of Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis Comic

Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis had their very own comic book. It was called The Adventures of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. It was published from 1952 to 1957. There were 40 issues of it. Here are the covers for the first five of those issues. I plan to post more in the future. The comic switched names to The Adventures of Jerry Lewis after the split of this comedy duo. That comic would continue on for issues #41 to #124.

It's The Age Of Aquarius

I've had The Age of Aquarius in my head for some reason. I've been humming this song all week long now. I decided to look for clips of people singing it. I've found some that I thought I would post. I hope you enjoy them.

I've posted this one of Peter Lawford before, but I wanted to post it again.

Here is Diahann Carroll:

Here is Engelbert Humperdinck:

So do you like any of these versions? If so, which one? Curious to know. Thanks. I was hoping to find some other entertainers do this song. It's a shame that Sammy Davis Jr. didn't do this song. I could easily imagine him covering this song.

Dean Martin Is Dude In Rio Bravo

Dean Martin loves westerns. He made quite a few of them. I plan to cover some of them in detail in the future. I wanted to post some pictures and posters from Rio Bravo. This 1959 western starred John Wayne, Dean Martin & Ricky Nelson. A small-town sheriff enlists the help of his deputies and others to prevent a murderer from being broken out of jail by his powerful rancher brother. John Wayne plays Sheriff John T. Chance, Dean Martin is his drunken deputy called Dude & Ricky Nelson is a young gunslinger known as Colorado Ryan. I want to write a proper review for this film in the future.

Here is a clip of Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson singing My Rifle, My Pony & Me. I think it's a really beautiful song. I hope you like it.
