Dean Martin’s Birthday

Dean Martin Born (1917)

Dean Martin was born in Ohio in 1917 and went on to become one of the most beloved singers and actors of the 1950’s. He was well known for teaming up with other iconic stars like Jerry Lewis, Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jnr and was an integral part of the Rat Pack. His public persona was one of a man who enjoyed all the finer things in life (he often pretended to be drunk on stage) but that didn’t stop him performing in Las Vegas right up until he died at the age of 78. To this day, he is one of history’s highest paid TV stars, earning the equivalent of $2,000,000 an episode for The Dean Martin Show.
