Singer, comic and actor Dean Martin was born 100 years ago today, on 07-June-1917, in Steubenville, Ohio. I first remember him as an aging guy with a television variety show I didn't like to watch. Later I saw his movies, first with partner Jerry Lewis, then on his own. Then I started to pay attention to his music and realized he could sing. Then I realized that he may have been the coolest guy in the world.
