Dean Martin in the Movie: Artists and Models, 1955 (Gif)

Artists and Models is a 1955 Paramount musical comedy in VistaVision and marked Martin and Lewis's fourteenth feature together as a team. The film co-stars Shirley MacLaine and Dorothy Malone, also featuring Eva Gabor and Anita Ekberg in brief roles

Rick Todd (Dean Martin) is a struggling painter and smooth-talking ladies' man. His goofy young roommate Eugene Fullstack (Jerry Lewis) is an aspiring children's author who has a passion for comic books, especially those of the mysterious and sexy "Bat Lady."

Each night, Eugene has horrific screaming nightmares inspired by those ultra-violent comics, which he describes aloud in his sleep. They are about the bizarre bird-like superhero "Vincent the Vulture" who is, according to Eugene's nocturnal babblings, the "defender of truth and liberty and a member of the Audubon Society" and is "half-boy, half-man, half-bird with feathers growing out of every pore" and a "tail full of jet propulsion." Also known as "Vultureman" or more simply "The Vulture", the golden helmeted hero soars through space from his "homogenized space station" orbiting the Milky Way to battle his shapely but sadistic purple-eyed archenemy "Zuba the Magnificent," who hates Vincent because "she's allergic to his feathers" and who enjoys blasting big "oooozing" holes into his highly resilient flying form ("It'll take more than that to stop me!") with her "atomic pivot gun."

A neighbor in their apartment building, Abigail Parker (Dorothy Malone), is a professional artist who works for a New York comic book company called Murdock Publishing and is the creator of the "Bat Lady." Her energetic horoscope-obsessed roommate is Bessie Sparrowbush (Shirley MacLaine), who is secretary to her publisher Mr. Murdock (Eddie Mayehoff) and Abigail's model for the flying bat-masked superheroine. Bessie develops a crush on Eugene, who is unaware that she is his beloved "Bat Lady" in the flesh.

Abigail becomes frustrated at work at the increasingly lurid and bloodthirsty stories the money-hungry Murdock demands. She quits to become an anti-comics activist, dragging Eugene into her crusade as an example of how trashy comic books can warp impressionable minds at the same time that Rick gets a job with the company after pitching the adventures of "Vincent the Vulture" from Eugene's dreams. Rick attains success at his new job, but after falling for Abigail he keeps his work a secret from both her and Eugene.

Unbeknownst to all, Eugene's dreams also contain the real top-secret rocket formula "X34 minus 5R1 plus 6-X36" that Rick publishes in his stories. With spies all around them, they manage to entertain at the annual "Artists and Models Ball" and capture the enemy, preserving national security.

Martin and Lewis' fourteenth feature, Artists and Models was filmed from February 28 to May 3, 1955 at Paramount Studios. The film was released on November 7, 1955 by Paramount Pictures, and was one of the team's highest-budgeted pictures at $1.5 million ($12,589,869.40 in 2011 dollars). The film was shot in VistaVision and Eastmancolor, with prints by Technicolor, and stereophonic sound by Perspecta. Costumes were by Paramount wardrobe designer Edith Head.

Artists and Models marked the first time Lewis worked with former Looney Tunes director Frank Tashlin, whom he admired greatly. Martin and Lewis would reunite with him on their last film, Hollywood Or Bust, and Lewis would then work with Tashlin on six of his solo films.

Producer Hal B. Wallis chose Tashlin for Artists and Models on the basis of his background as a cartoonist, and the film contains many gags influenced by the director's animation work. When MacLaine kisses Lewis in front of a water cooler, the water steams up; in another scene, a massage therapist bends Lewis's leg all the way towards his head. Artists and Models is considered a milestone in movie satire for its mockery of mid-1950s pop culture. One scene satirizes the Kefauver hearings on violent comic books, and other targets in the film include the Cold War, the space race and the publishing business.

Tashlin brought a lot of sexual innuendo to Artists and Models, making it more adult in content than most previous Martin and Lewis movies and indulging his own fetishistic fascination with female characters in revealing costumes. Some of his most suggestive ideas were disallowed by the Production Code; in Tashlin's original script, Lewis's character was named "Fullstick," but the censors ordered the removal of this phallic joke. The censors also asked Paramount to cut a scene where Dorothy Malone is seen wearing only a strategically placed towel, but the studio did not remove it. The finished film contains many jokes that push the boundaries of what was acceptable in the mid-'50s, including many about women's breasts and a number of double entendres.

Longtime Martin and Lewis writer Herbert Baker worked on the script, which had the original title Rock-A-Bye Baby; the title later being used for a 1958 Jerry Lewis film.

Songs featured were by music legends Harry Warren and Jack Brooks, and included "When You Pretend", "You Look So Familiar", "Innamorata (Sweetheart)", "The Lucky Song", and "Artists and Models." A sixth number, sung by Shirley MacLaine during the party, entitled "The Bat Lady", was cut from the final edit.

MacLaine did not make another film with Lewis, but did go on to appear in six more films with Martin, Some Came Running, Ocean's Eleven, Career, All in a Night's Work, What a Way to Go! and Cannonball Run II.

According to a 1955 column by Sheilah Graham, the part of Abby was originally offered to Lizabeth Scott, who had played opposite the team in Scared Stiff. When she turned the part down, Martin asked for Dorothy Malone, his other love interest from Scared Stiff.

The cast is filled with cameos by many Martin and Lewis regulars. Eddie Mayehoff made his cinematic debut in That's My Boy and co-starred in The Stooge. Kathleen Freeman also appeared in 3 Ring Circus, along with a number of Lewis' solo films. Jack Elam was in the team's second-to-last picture, Pardners. Anita Ekberg would appear in Martin and Lewis' final film, Hollywood Or Bust.

The "Vincent the Vulture" comic books made as a prop for this picture briefly appear in the unaired pilot for the Get Smart television series.

The film was included on a five-film DVD set, the Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis Collection: Volume Two, released on June 5, 2007.

When outta the blue blue skies... I say's to myself..."I could go for some tea."

I've been feelin' a little under the weather this week, pals.

So...as I'm gettin' ready to probably burn my throat on the scaldin' water...I just happened to notice there was a little note on the teabags tag.
This is what it said.

And I quote..."The beauty of the soul is constant, continuous & endless."


Let me tell youse nice nice Dino-holics...this COMPLETELY sent me in a whole new Dino-direction for this week's Dino-Amore serenade!

"Senza Fine"...is ...without ANY doubt...the ONLY tune that I could pick!

Translated from Italiano..."Never Ending".

This is his message he wanted me to send to youse!

Youse think so, pallies?

This BEA U TI FUL tune explains how love should be.

 Don't hold back, my friends!

Love is meant to be shared!


And as I said here before, pals...it don't matter if it's your Husband, Wife, Mom or Dad...dog, cat, golfball or meatball!
Just share some love!!!

OK, pals...youse take it from here!

Enjoy the moment & spread some Dino-love 'round!

Ciao, mi amici!

Senza fine
Let it always be senza fine
There's no end to our love
Our hopes, our dreams, our sighs
No end at all, no sad goodbyes
No fears, no tears, no love that dies
It's senza fine
Senza fine
Let it always be senza fine
The sunlit days, the moonlit nights
The sea, the sand, the starry heights
Are yours and mine forever more
All we are and all we know
Is love and love alone, so
We'll go floating far above
In never-ending timeless love
(Let it always be senza fine)
The sunlit days, the moonlit nights
The sea, the sand, the starry heights
Are yours and mine forever more
Let it always be senza fine
Never-ending it's senza fine
La-da-dea-da-da-de... Fade

Hey pallies, likes a Dino-croon goes "Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing," radiantly reflects that love has many many deeply delightful dimensions and flows from many many splendid sources.  Likes the fact that ilovedinomartin continues to offer Dino-adulation from all 'round the Dino-globe is true testimony to the unendin' uniquely universal awesome amore that is neverendin'ly freely flowin' from all places in the known world for our most most beautifully beloved Dino!

So it is awesomely appropriate durin' Dino-amore month to keeps bringin' youse Dino-holics Dino-affirmation from places far and wide.  Today we visit with the Spanish site, "La Voz Telurica," "The Teluric Voice," from a place tagged Roquetes, a municipality in the province of Tarragona, in Catalonia, Spain.

Likes the post below was scribed by a pallie tagged "Roco Allstar" and is a most lovin', touchin' 'n tender tribute to the fantastically fabulous Dino-al-bum from 1968, "Gentle On My Mind."  The scriber is obviously a deep deep devotee of our most beloved Dino and begins by proclaimin' the Dino-truth that, "the great Dino went his own way."  Like we gotta 'fess up that we were most marvelously moved when near the end of the Dino-prose, Allstar proudly professed Dino-amore statin', "It is always a great pleasure to our ears and our souls Dean Martin appears by the telluric pages." Ain't it the coolest pallies to hear 'nother Dino-digger speak so perfectly, powerfully of their

[Classic Tel√ļrico ] Dean Martin - Gentle On My Mind ( 1968 )
Hippies ran winds of change mentalities, but the great Dino went his own way , to interpret songs in his voice became more timeless yet, and pierced the barrier of time always in full form.

Included in an album self-titled , Gentle On My Mind , is one of those deli unforgettable and impeccable arrangements also had his adaptations of the hand of Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra or Glen Campbell, but which our favorite scoundrel added him that particular charm that had implied in anything he did.

From the album production he was commissioned Jimmy Bowen, and the aforementioned master of the caliber of Ernie Freeman arrangements , achieving results that led to this material to be a favorite in the USA and UK lists . As always, anyone here heard of these jewels .

It is always a great pleasure to our ears and our souls Dean Martin appears by the telluric pages, so when we win again , we will colarle with another of his wonderful classics. May you enjoy it ... they will, for sure.

[Cl√°sico Tel√ļrico] Dean Martin - Gentle On My Mind (1968)
Corr√≠an vientos hippies, de cambio de mentalidades, pero el gran Dino iba a lo suyo, a interpretar canciones que en su voz se hac√≠an m√°s atemporales a√ļn, y traspasaban la barrera del paso del tiempo siempre en plenitud de forma.

Incluida en un álbum de título homónimo, Gentle On My Mind, es una de esas delicatessen de arreglos inolvidables e impecables que también tuvo sus adaptaciones de la mano de Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra o Glen Campbell, pero a la que nuestro canalla favorito le sumaba ese encanto tan particular que llevaba implícito en cualquier cosa que hacía.

De la producción del disco se encargó Jimmy Bowen, y de los arreglos antes citados un maestro del calibre de Ernie Freeman, consiguiendo unos resultados que llevaron a este material a ser de los favoritos en las listas de USA y UK. Como siempre, por aquí nadie se enteró de estas joyas.

Siempre es un gustazo para nuestros o√≠dos y para nuestras almas que Dean Martin aparezca por las p√°ginas tel√ļricas, as√≠ que cuando le tengamos de nuevo ganas, volveremos a colarle con otro de sus maravillosos cl√°sicos. Que ustedes lo disfruten...que lo har√°n, seguro.
