Obviously there was a tremendous bond between Dean and Jerry. They loved each other like brothers (are supposed to).
Yet, after they broke up, they were estranged for 20 years.
It took a surprise meeting set up by Frank Sinatra to break the ice and they finally renewed their friendship.

Some of these photos are rather amazing – a different era for sure. 
But not that long ago.

Dean Martin Westerns

Let’s look at Dean Martin’s Westerns

Dean Martin made about 10 Westerns between 1956 and 1973. They fall into a few categories: Comedy, Classic, Spaghetti, Pulp, and Head Scratcher?

Let’s start with Martin and Lewis (Jerry)Dean and Jerry made several movies in their 10 year comedy collaboration. One of them was a Western Musical Comedy called Pardners (1956).
It’s not what I would call a Western Classic. But fun.

Trailers

Rumors were abounding in 1956 that Dean and Jerry were going to break up. Hence they were put up to this ending:

Dean and Jerry’s gun handling is impressive. I heard (somewhere) that the guy to taught Actors to handle guns said Dean and Jerry were among the best students he ever taught. They had the knack.
That might just be Publicity talk. But it might also be true.

Posters

The Supporting Cast of Pardners is pretty amazing: Agnes Moorehead, Lori Nelson, Jeff Morrow, Lon Chaney, Jr., Jack Elam, Lee Van Cleef, Bob Steele.
Though Elam, Van Cleef, and Steele got no Billing, they all became very successful Western film Stars.
