# Quote
1 [in 1964, upon introducing The Rolling Stones on ABC TVs’ “Hollywood Palace”] I’ve been rolled when I was stoned.
2 [on Jerry Lewis] At some point, he said to himself, “I’m extraordinary, like Charles Chaplin”. From then on, nobody could tell him anything. He knew it all.
3 [on Frank Sinatra] When he dies, they’re giving his zipper to the Smithsonian.
4 [on singer Eddie Fisher] The reason I drink is because, when I’m sober, I think I’m Eddie Fisher.
5 [on Shirley MacLaine] Shirley, I love her, but her oars aren’t touching the water these days.
6 Someone else, would have laid around, feeling sorry for himself, for a year. But Duke, he just doesn’t know, how to be sick … he’s recuperating the hard way. He’s two loud speaking guys in one. Me, when people see me, they sometimes say, ‘Oh, there goes Perry Como.’ But there’s only one ‘John Wayne’, and nobody makes any mistakes about that. – On The Sons of Katie Elder (1965)
7 Motivation is a lotta crap.
8 I can’t stand an actor or actress who tells me acting is hard work. It’s easy work. Anyone who says it isn’t never had to stand on his feet all day dealing blackjack.
9 I’d hate to be a teetotaler. Imagine getting up in the morning and knowing that’s as good as you’re going to feel all day.
10 On his tee-total friend Pat Boone: “I once shook hands with Pat Boone, and my whole right side sobered up!”
11 On Milton Berle: Milton Berle is an inspiration to every young person that wants to get into show business. Hard work, perseverance, and discipline: all the things you need…when you have no talent.
12 On Johnny Carson: Johnny Carson is a comedian who is seen every night in millions of bedrooms all over America…and that’s why his last wife left him.
13 On Don Rickles: Don’s idea of a fun evening is to show home movies of the attack on Pearl Harbor…with a laugh track.
14 On Bob Hope: As a young boy, Bob didn’t have much to say. He couldn’t afford writers then.
15 On Orson Welles: What can you say about Orson Welles that Don Rickles hasn’t already said about him?!
16 On James Stewart: There’s a statue of Jimmy Stewart in the Hollywood Wax Museum, and the statue talks better than he does.
17 On Frank Sinatra: In high school, Frank never participated in extra-curricular activities, like nature study, paintings or ceramics. Frank’s hobby was a most interesting one: he was an amateur gynecologist.
18 On Phyllis Diller: Phyllis is the women of about whom Picasso once said, “Somebody throw a drop cloth over that.”
19 On Joey Bishop: Most people think of Joey Bishop as just a replacement for Johnny Carson. That’s NOT true. We in show business know better: we don’t think of him at ALL.
20 I drink because my body craves, needs alcohol. I don’t drink, my body’s a drunk.
21 Upon filing for divorce from his second wife: “I know it’s the gentlemanly thing to let the wife file. But, then, everybody knows I’m no gentleman.”
22 To those who felt he joked his way through songs during concert and nightclub appearences: “You wanna hear it straight, buy the album.”
23 I’ve got seven kids. The three words you hear most around my house are ‘hello,’ ‘goodbye,’ and ‘I’m pregnant.
24 If people want to think I get drunk and stay out all night, let ’em. That’s how I got here, you know.
# Fact
1 In 1962, he recorded the American version of the French song “C’est si bon” which was written in 1947 by Henri Betti (music) and André Hornez (lyrics). The musical arrangements were done by Neal Hefti and the English lyrics were written by Jerry Seelen.
2 He usually wore lifts in films and on his television show.
3 In his 1995 autobiography “In the Arena” Charlton Heston wrote that Frank Sinatra would not allow Martin to perform at the inaugural ball for Ronald Reagan‘s first inauguration as President of the United States, because Martin was too drunk.
4 Was also a newspaper carrier in his younger days.
5 In a telegram sent to his friend Elivis Presley he wrote: Dear Elvis, if you can’t handle The Beatles, I’ll do it for us. June 1964.
6 His third wife Cathy was the daughter of Major League Baseball Player Jim Baxes, and sister of James Coleman.
7 Growing up in Steubenville, Ohio, Martin was childhood friends with famed gambler and sports handicapper, Jimmy “The Greek” Snyder. (The two appeared together onscreen in “The Cannonball Run”) Like Snyder, Martin began his early career hanging around Steubenville’s notorious gambling dens.
8 Although Martin’s official height was 5’11”, many people who knew him said he wore lifts and his real height was 5’9″.
9 Inducted into the Lou Holtz/Upper Ohio Valley Hall of Fame in 2001.
10 Was a close friend of Julie London.
11 Once employed as a steelworker.
12 Godfather of Tori Spelling.
13 He was awarded 3 Stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Motion Pictures at 6519 Hollywood Boulevard, for Recording at 1617 Vine Street, and for Television at 6651 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
14 Martin’s variety show contract was utterly remarkable in how little he was required to participate. Martin felt he performed better cold and took notice of Fred MacMurray‘s long-standing 65-day “on the set” contract for producer Don Fedderson for My Three Sons. He succeeded in reaching a new plateau on that one by only be contractually required to appear on the set during the taping. All guest stars, no matter how “big” were required to rehearse with stand-ins (see Greg Garrison). As a result, Martin would often happily flub his lines, to the delight of his audience. More often than not, he’d leave the stage and be seen driving off the studio lot in his sports car before taping concluded.
15 Although Jerry Lewis was often made out to be the short guy in their act, he was actually the same height as Martin and used to cut the heel off of his shoe to achieve the effect.
16 He was a close friend of Montgomery Clift. Martin was always grateful for the help Clift had given him while filming The Young Lions (1958) – Martin’s first major dramatic role – and he would accompany him to parties after the rest of Hollywood had disowned him due to his increasing addictions to drugs and alcohol.
17 Has 8 children: Stephen Craig Martin (b. June 29th 1942), Claudia Martin (b. March 16th 1944 – died 2001 (breast cancer), Barbara Martin (b. April 11th 1945 and Deana Martin (b. August 19th 1948) with first wife Elizabeth McDonald. Dean Paul Martin (b. November 17th 1951 – died March 21st 1987 (plane crash), Ricci Martin (b. September 20th 1953) and Gina Caroline Martin (b. December 20th 1956) with second wife Jeanne Martin and adopted daughter Sasha Martin with third wife Catherine Hawn.
18 After being drafted into the United States Army and serving a stateside year (1944-1945) in Akron, Ohio, during World War II, Martin was classified 4-F and was discharged.
19 In 1962, Martin left Capitol Records and signed with Reprise, the label started and owned by Frank Sinatra. In 1964, he recorded his blockbuster hit, “Everybody Loves Somebody”, which beat the Beatles to become the No. 1 hit in America for one week. It became the theme song for his television variety series, The Dean Martin Show (1965), which ran on NBC for eight years. Martin followed this with The Dean Martin Comedy World (1974), which ran from 1973 to 1974. An indelible part of Martin’s television shtick was his comedic portrayal of life as a lush, which many viewers never realized was just an act.
20 One of his favorite hobbies during his reclusive final years was watching westerns on television – the older the better.
21 At 16, Dean Martin was a welterweight boxer who compiled a record of 25-11.
22 He was a close friend of John Wayne and Gary Cooper.
23 Martin did not party all night with the rest of the “Rat Pack” crew – actually calling themselves “The Clan”. He usually went to bed early so he could play golf the next morning. He was obsessed with golf, and once stated in an interview that he would have preferred to be a professional golfer than an entertainer.
24 Although he made out to be a heavy drinker on stage, he mostly used apple juice, but off stage was a Jack Daniels man.
25 Dean was so distraught over the murder of his The Wrecking Crew (1968) co-star and friend Sharon Tate that he abandoned the next already-announced “Matt Helm” motion picture series installment (to be titled “The Ravagers”), and never played the character again.
26 He declined to participate in the March on Washington in August 1963.
27 Had a night-club in North Bay Village, Florida in the late 1970s and early 1980s called Dino’s. It was next to Jilly Rizzo‘s club, Jilly’s.
28 Although Martin was a Republican, he supported Frank Sinatra‘s campaign to elect John F. Kennedy as President in 1960.
29 He and Jerry Lewis, in1954, recorded a radio spot promoting “Tuck Tape” then a competing brand of “Scotch Tape and noticing the recording tape for the commercial was still rolling, decided to improvise additional radio spots, with Jerry and Dean slipping profanities into his dialog. The unedited master recording was surreptitiously taken from the studio and made into a “bootleg” record that sold briskly among collectors.
30 Following his diagnosis of lung cancer at Cedars Sinai Medical Center on 16 September 1993, Martin finally quit smoking and even managed to perform briefly, and rather jauntily, at his 77th birthday celebration in June 1994. He declined to have major surgery on his liver and kidneys which doctors told him was necessary to prolong his life, and succumbed to respiratory failure on Christmas Day 1995.
31 He and the other members of the Rat Pack were banned from Marilyn Monroe‘s funeral by Joe DiMaggio
32 Despite the legend that he and comedy partner Jerry Lewis always despised each other, the two were actually quite close friends and the tension between the two began in 1956, when “outside people” (as Lewis called them to Peter Bogdanovich) began to “poison” Martin against Lewis. Frank Sinatra eventually staged a public reunion over 20 years after, during a 1976 MDA telethon that Jerry was hosting. However they did reunite twice, briefly, during that 20 year hiatus. In 1958, they appeared together as surprise guests on “The Joey Bishop Show” and in 1960, they appeared together on stage at “The Sands” in Las Vegas where they did a duet of “Come Back To Me”. Over the next 10 years, following their 70s reunion, they became close again.
33 Although he had almost 40 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 charts between 1951 and 1968, only three went to number one: “That’s Amore” (Capitol: 1953), “Memories Are Made of This” (Capitol: 1956), and his theme song, “Everybody Loves Somebody” (Reprise: 1964).
34 When 20th Century-Fox fired Marilyn Monroe as his co-star in Something’s Got to Give (1962) and then attempted to replace her with Lee Remick, he reminded the studio that he had contractual approval of his co-star, and refused to continue the project without Monroe. His act of loyalty eventually got Marilyn re-hired, but she died of a drug overdose before shooting on this never-finished film could resume. Nine hours of largely unseen footage from the film remained in the vaults at 20th Century Fox until 1999. The film was then edited to include some of the unseen footage,wherever feasible and digitally restored, as a 37 minute film. After 39 years, The film finally premiered on Cable TV’s “American Movie Classics”, on June 1, 2001. It is available on DVD.
35 His style of singing was initially influenced by Harry Mills of The Mills Brothers.
36 He and former wife Jeanne Martin maintained a friendship after their divorce, and consulted each other on family matters. When his health declined, Jeanne encouraged him not to worry about facing death, and to look at it as the chance he longed for, to be reunited with their son Dean Paul Martin, and with his parents.
37 His friends often described him as easygoing and good natured, loving to laugh and make others laugh. They also said that he was sometimes quiet and liked to spend time alone, and that they seldom knew what he was thinking.
38 He and Frank Sinatra were best friends, a fact he held very dear to his heart. The two didn’t speak much, in the years after Dean quit the “Rat Pack Reunion” tour, but they did reconcile a few months before his death, over dinner – and a breadroll fight.
39 Starred (with Jerry Lewis) on NBC Radio’s “The Martin and Lewis Show” (1949-1953).
40 “Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime” – words written on his tombstone, after his signature hit.

42 Son-in-law was the late Carl Wilson of The Beach Boys (married to Dean’s daughter Gina).
43 Underwent rhinoplasty when he was 27. The procedure was rumored to have been paid for by Lou Costello among others.
44 Dean is one of few actors who have received not just one, but three stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame: one for Motion Pictures at 6519 Hollywood Blvd., one for Television at 6651 Hollywood Blvd, and a third for his recording career.
45 Dean’s TV career began in 1950 with The Martin & Lewis Show on The Colgate Comedy Hour, which ran through 1955. He hosted various other shows before reluctantly taking the 1965 gig which turned into a 19-year success under various names.
46 From 1973 to 1984, he was the host of the “Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts.” In one of the most classic television series of all time, Dean and his panel of actors and comics would shower the guest of honor with insults. This series contained the most famous names in the history of entertainment, such as Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, George Burns, James Stewart, Orson Welles, Jack Benny, Phyllis Diller, Milton Berle, Gene Kelly, Don Rickles, Rich Little, John Wayne, and Foster Brooks.
47 Father in law of Carole Costello. She was married to Craig Martin, his oldest son & was the daughter of Lou Costello.
48 Much of the “booze” that he drank on stage during his famous “Rat Pack” performances was really apple juice. (Son Dean Paul Martin spilled this secret, after the variety show ended production, stating that his father couldn’t have performed if he’d really drunk that much liquor.)
49 Nephew of actor/comedian Leonard Barr.
50 Died exactly 29 years to the day (25 December 1995) after his mother, Angela Crocetti (25 December 1966).

He reportedly fought under the nickname Kid Crochet, although no records of fights have been found under that name.
