Next: Part 3
Tags: 4 for Texas, Dean Martin
Love your Dean Martin series. Almost had a chance to work Martin once. Rat Pack was coming to town. A couple days before the show though, Martin got sick and was replaced by Liza Minnelli, a great entertainer I also enjoyed working. Setting up for the show, I asked the Production Manager if Dean had gotten over his sickness.
‘Yeah,’ he told me. ‘He was sick alright. Sick of being woke up at 3, 4 in the morning by Frank and Sammy running up and down the hall, screaming and laughing, and shooting off firecrackers outside everybody’s door.’
Never did get to work Dean.
A shame (sorta) – Dean would have been fun to meet and work with. But LIsa was probably awesome. The Rat Pack, of course, was rumored to party a lot. I couldn’t tell from here whether it was all exaggerated or not?? Probably not.
! always wished Lisa had done do more work than she did. She was sensational in Cabaret (Oscar) and I’m sure she was a great Club/Stage artist.
You’ve had some great experiences Don.
