Happy Birthday — Dino Paul Crocetti (Dean Martin)

MV5BMTI0OTgzMTI3Nl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTYwMDc1NDM2._V1._SX450_SY294_The coolest cat to ever come out of Steubenville, OH (possibly the coolest man who ever walked the earth) was born on this date in 1917. The son of a Neopoalitan barber who immigrated to the US, Dino worked at a cigar store that doubled as an illicit casino, learning to palm cards and deal blackjack. After seeing a Bing Crosby movie, Dino decided that he too wanted to be a crooner.
