Description
Usually depicted only as a hard-playing, hard-boozing Rat Packer with a dark side, Dean Martin had a much more complex character than the popular portrait suggests. A singer, actor, and comedian, he was more than anything an entertainer of the variety that no longer exists. Martini Man: The Life of Dean Martin goes beyond the simple caricature of the boozy lounge singer with a penchant for racy humor to reveal the substantive man behind that mirthful mask.

Martini Man goes beyond the simple caricature of the boozy lounge singer with a penchant for racy humor to reveal the substantive man behind that mask. Although Martin's movie roles receive in-depth attention in this incisive biography, as does his career-defining partnership with Jerry Lewis, details of Dino's personal life also abound, such as how Shierly MacLaine dropped by his house "to tell Dean she was in love with him-even though his wife was in the other room." William Schoell's chronicle is a sympathetic portrait that recreates the life and times of one of America's favorite entertainers.
