Kimmy’s Gallery of Dean Martin Images, Volume 1
After Ten Thousand Bedrooms, Dean’s first solo outing following his split with Jerry, bombed at the box office, he agreed to take a pay cut to appear opposite Marlon Brando and Montgomery Cliff in 1958’s The Young Lions (from which the still above was taken), proving his acting mettle in the dramatic role, and thus salvaging his career on the big screen.

(below) Two more portraits of our subject, the first being the favorite of one of our most faithful Dinopallies, Susan; the second, a semi-profile from a somewhat later period:
