    Cancel any upcoming flights to the moon, because living in Frank Sinatra's Rat Pack home is a great reason to stay on Earth. Named "Villa Maggio," Sinatra's hideaway from Hollywood is on the market for $3.9 million. The Palm Desert, California home was a spot where Sinatra and fellow Rat Pack members Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop would hang out and get some R&R from their fans in a private location.
  • Youtube Video of a Supercool Ronald Reagan hanging out with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin

    Here is a youtube video of Ronald Reagan hanging out with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin: This video has inspired me to make some observations. One of the greatest mistakes conservatives make in analyzing the 1980 election, is to exaggerate the weakness of Jimmy Carter in the 1980 election. I am not a Carter-hater, and I think Carter was a better President and stronger leader than several American Presidents, including Obama, Clinton, James Buchanan, etc. To say that Reagan won his election victories because his opponents were weak, is like saying Muhammad Ali became the heavyweight boxing champion of...

    Why it qualifies: -- Because it is two members of the Rat Pack, both radiating awesomeness, looking like they might have headed to the golf course straight from another all-nighter on the Vegas Strip. -- Because both men look unfazed that they may be in violation of the 14-club limit (Really, who's going to tell the Chairman of the Board he needs to take out that extra wedge?). -- Because one of the woods in the background might not be a wood at all, but an Al Czervik-style beer tap. -- Because other than maybe Tony Gwynn, no one else...

    Las Vegas is home to some of the most exciting entertainment in the country; no other place in America rivals the rich history and variety of thrills located within the limits of Sin City. But just as much as people love to come and lose themselves in this modern adult wonderland, they owe the good time to a few key players in the entertainment industry who helped immortalize the city. From singers, producers, club-owners and showgirls, talented people from all walks of life helped to establish Las Vegas as the party capital of America. While you could make a list...
  • Dean Martin / Johnny Carson 1969 TV

    03/08/2013 6:08:44 PM PST · by virgil283 · 27 replies
    "Dean Martin on the Tonight Show, May 6 1969. One of the funniest episodes of late-night TV, a snapshot of the anything goes late 60's and Johnny's favorite episode. Dean Martin makes an unexpected appearance and steals the show from Bob Hope. The underrated George Gobel then shows up (in part 2) and unleashes one of the greatest lines of all time. Dean struggles to find an ashtray to the hilarity of all and Johnny is left valiantly trying to hang on to some kind of order and keep the censors happy."

    Singer Dean Martin's daughter has put Johnny Depp at the top of her wish list to portray her father in an upcoming biopic. Deana Martin's memoir, Memories Are Made of This, is set for a big screen movie adaption, directed by Joe Mantegna, who played the iconic star in 1998 HBO movie The Rat Pack. The 63 year old, who is also a musician, has already recruited actress Jennifer Love Hewitt to portray her in the film, after running into the actress during a concert in the Big Apple last year, and Deana admits the casting was a dream come...

    Two recent multi-disc releases -- TimeLife’s The Dean Martin Variety Show Uncut and Universal Music’s Dean Martin: Collected Cool -- capture the crooning, clowning, incessantly smoking king of cool in full bloom. On September 16, 1965, those familiar words, “The following program is brought to you in living color,” accompanied by the NBC television network’s stylized peacock mascot, preceded the debut of Martin’s weekly variety show. In the age of variety shows, including CBS’ Sunday night staple, The Ed Sullivan Show, Martin’s program breezed through nine seasons. Inexpensive to produce, the show earned tons of money for the network and...

    There are likely more than 10 things you don’t know about the Rat Pack, but the History Channel has whittled the list to a mere 10-pack and this week aired a special episode of the series “10 Things You Don’t Know About” centering on the fabled performers who first instilled swagger in Vegas. Several weeks ago, I was asked to contribute to this project to elaborate on the 10 pieces of triviata unearthed by History Channel producers. David G. Schwartz, director of UNLV's Center for Gaming Research, also was interviewed, and you can catch the full episode on the History...

    It's no secret famed Rat Packer Dean Martin is still about as cool as it gets, so it only makes sense he would choose a vehicle as cool and unique as a 1962 Ghia L6.4 as a mode of transportation. After getting his hands on the car, Martin decided his Ghia—one of 26 L6.4s built—still needed a little bit more unique personality and enlisted famed custom car builder George Barris to add a few subtle touches. Whether you love the styling of the Ghia or hate it, it's impossible to dispute it's one of a kind nature. Under the hood...

    A few years ago a group of us were having dinner at a steakhouse, and among the people at the table were the terrific sports columnist Mike Downey and his wife, Gail Martin. The manager of the place came over to say hello; introductions were made. At one point in the evening I was making my way to the men's room and ran into the manager again. I said to him, "That Gail Martin you met? I think you're probably familiar with her late father." "Who was her dad?" the man said. "His first name was Dean," I said. Within...

Jan Brewer in her re-election bid. Martin said in a release that he didn’t want the primary race for governor to be a “distraction,” in a time when “serious debate about the fiscal condition of our state is needed.” Martin’s term will end in December, and he said at that time he will take some “much-needed time off.” The full text of Martin’s letter is...
