About Dean Martin (1917 – 1995)

Dean Martin was born on June 7, 1917, in Steubenville, Ohio. Dean's birth name was Dino Paul Crocetti.

On December 25, 1995, Dean Martin passed away in Beverly Hills, California, from emphysema.

Sometimes Dean Martin was credited as Martin & Lewis.

Dino and King Leer were Dean Martin's nicknames.

Though best known for the 51 films he made, Dean Martin was a prizefighter, steel mill laborer, gas station attendant and card shark before seeing his first glimmer of fame.

In 1946, Dean Martin got his first ticket to stardom, when he teamed up with another hard worker who was also trying to hit it big in Hollywood – Jerry Lewis.

Dean Martin won critical acclaim for his role in THE YOUNG LIONS, in 1958, working with Marlon Brando and Montgomery Clift.

One of the few actors to receive two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Dean Martin has one for Motion Pictures at 6519 Hollywood Blvd, and one for Television at 6651 Hollywood Blvd.

OCEAN'S ELEVEN, in 1960, was one Martin's best remembered films. He played Sam Harmon alongside other members of the legendary Rat Pack: Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford.

Dean Martin hosted THE DEAN MARTIN SHOW; from 1965 to 1973, winning a 1965 Golden Globe Award.

In 1973, Martin renamed the show to THE DEAN MARTIN COMEDY HOUR. It ran from 1974 to 1984. Dean then re-named it a third time, to THE DEAN MARTIN CELEBRITY ROASTS.

On THE DEAN MARTIN CELEBRITY ROASTS, Dean would get to make good-spirited fun of a long line of Hollywood greats, including Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, James Stewart, George Burns, Milton Berle, Don Rickles Phyllis Diller, Joe Namath – and a great many more.
