Dean Martin (born Dino Paul Crocetti; June 7, 1917 - December 25, 1995) was an American singer, film actor, television star and comedian. He was a major star in four areas of show business: concert stage/night clubs, recordings, motion pictures, and television. Martin's hit singles included "Memories Are Made of This," "That's Amore," "Everybody Loves Somebody," "You're Nobody 'til Somebody Loves You," "Sway," "Volare" and "Ain't That a Kick in the Head?" His signature tune, "Everybody Loves Somebody," knocked The Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night" out of the number-one spot in the United States in 1964.
From 1946 to 1984, Martin appeared in 52 feature length films, four cameos in features, four shorts and received a nomination for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for "Who Was That Lady?" In 1965, Martin launched his weekly NBC comedy-variety series, The Dean Martin Show, which lasted until the final 1973/74 season which consisted of celebrity roasts. NBC turned The Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts into a series of TV specials which aired for 11 more years through 1984.
Nicknamed the "King of Cool," he was one of the members of the "Rat Pack" in the early 1960s, along with friends, Frank Sinatra, Joey Bishop, Peter Lawford, and Sammy Davis Jr. For three decades (60s-80s), Martin was among the most popular acts in Las Vegas. Martin sang and was one of the smoothest comics in the business, benefiting from the decade of raucous comedy with Jerry Lewis. His footprints were immortalized at Grauman's Chinese Theater in 1964. Martin has three stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame: one for movies; one for recordings; and one for television. In 2009, Martin was honored with a posthumous Grammy award for Lifetime Achievement and was also inducted into the Hit Parade Hall of Fame.
