c0 Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis very large scan suitable for desktop wallpaper, from PepeTube.comA little levity from one of my favorite comedy duos.

Brother Tom and I used to stay up late and watch old Martin and Lewis movies on the Late Late Late Show, keeping our laughter down to muffled giggles so Dad wouldn’t yell upstairs for us to go to knock it off and go to sleep.

Dean and Jerry Fake Argument
In this clip, Dean and Jerry have a fake argument; very funny, but IMHO narrowly skirts some of the subtle cruelty that gets you asking "is this a little real?" Some homo-erotica insinuation that was (and is still) common among male duo acts.



  1. Hey pallie, likes Mr. Cairns, the thin' 'bout this post is it shows just how much fun our most beloved Dino and his most beloved partner Jerry had just bein' together. Know that your reflections are bein' shared this day with all the pallies gathered 'round ilovedinomartin as part of our celebration of the 88th anniversary of Jerry's birth this very Dino-week.
