Born today in 1917. Dean was the boozer of The Rat Pack, well that's how his image went. Dino was an amazing singer, had a great sense of humor and movie star looks. His "Martin and Lewis" films are priceless and if you have never seen one you're missing something hilarious.
Its funny he was always the handsome bachelor with a circle of smoke around his head, way cool. His voice is infamous and although alot of what he sang comes off sort of corny now, back in the day he was the cats pajamas.
I'm a fan, always have been. I'm fascinated by his era really. Seemed so much more romantic, although my impression is based solely on films so what the heck do I know.
There are tons of tributes and tons of websites about him, but in honor of this, what would have been 94th birthday how about we just groove on this classic video.
Cake and a Martini for the crooner:
