What Would Dean Do?
DOIN’ WHAT COMES NATUR’LLY: As we commemorate Dean Martin’s birthday, we’ve made some educated guesses as to how he might ideally celebrate the occasion. Depicted in the montage above are some possibilities, with the prospective scenarios detailed below.
With today marking the 97th anniversary of Dean Martin‘s birth, and with many of his fans observing the occasion with heartfelt tributes, we’re given to wonder how Dean himself, in his prime, might have chosen to spend the day.
While answering that question obviously calls for a certain degree of speculation, it’s probably safe to say that his idea of the idyllic way to celebrate might include:
1) Starting the day on the driving range, then moving on to the links;
2) Shooting the breeze with some of his best pallies;
3) Singing some songs with an assortment of his series’ sultry sirens;
4) Enjoying some quality time and fun with his family.
But whatever Dean might be inclined to do on his birthday, we honor him on it because of the impact that he’s had on our own lives, and because of the rich legacy of gifts — his music, his films, his work in television — that he left to all of us.
