I remember his old variety show, always with a drink and lots of women and the "Gold Diggers".
When I was young I never noticed but I see old footage of him on commercials and he looks pretty light in the loafers and I cant rember him ever being married.
So was he a fag?

Although later in life Dean Martin was a recluse, it is rumored in Hollywood that Dean martin was gay. That's what I have heard from movie sources.

Had 4 kids, was briefly a prize fighter, did odd jobs for the local crime syndicate, and when he took batting practice with the old Hollywood Stars of the Pacific Coast League (AAA) he could hit the wall. Far from gay and IIRC he didn't really drink, it was all a carefully crafted image.

I met the gold diggers in person, and Dean Martin was not Gay. He had lot's of wimmins. The Gold diggers were anorexic no talent gals that HE made big, for a while. Dean was the man. His singing was beautiful.

After his son died he went reclusive - or so I've heard.

I don't think he was ever gay.

I liked Dino! And watched his variety show with my parents all the time.

I also liked his Matt Helm movies - as corny as they were....

The man fathered seven children from three wives, and with his last wife, adopted yet another. He was a known womanizer. There is no fucking way in hell that Dean was gay. If you really wanted to know about Dean, try googling his name instead of this shit.

Dont get me wrong, I liked all the Rat Packers and still like Deano's music.
I'm just asking because he looks femmy in the old footage and I dont recall him being married. He looks kinda gay in the old footage, he does.

Now I'm confused. Are you saying that Tony Curtis was actually Rock Hudson or Rock Hudson was actually Tony Curtis? He was really a woman right?

Dino Martin flew his F-4 into the Sierra Mtns, probable cause was maybe his oxygen hose came detatched,damn shame,I used to go by March AFB right around the same time on the way to FT Irwin. Dean Martin was never the same after that.

Best quote about Dean Martin...

"Frank Sinatra thought he was god. Dean Martin KNEW he was."

It's all in the attitude.

(In Napoli where love is King)
(When boy meets girl)
(Here's what they say)

When the moon hits your eye
Like a big-a pizza pie
That's amore
When the world seems to shine
Like you've had too much wine
That's amore

Bells'll ring
Ting-a-ling-a-ling
Ting-a-ling-a-ling
And you'll sing "Vita bella"
Hearts'll play
Tippi-tippi-tay
Tippi-tippi-tay
Like a gay tarantella

When the stars make you drool
Joost-a like pasta fazool
That's amore
When you dance down the street
With a cloud at your feet, you're in love
When you walk in a dream
But you know you're not dreamin', signore
'Scusami, but you see
Back in old Napoli, that's amore

(When the moon hits your eye)
(Like a big-a pizza pie, that's amore)

That's amore

(When the world seems to shine
(Like you've had too much wine, that's amore)

That's amore

(Bells will ring)
(Ting-a-ling-a-ling)
(ting-a-ling-a-ling)
(And you'll sing "Vita bella")
(Vita bell-vita bella)
(Hearts will play)
(Tippi-tippi-tay, tippi-tippi-tay)
(Like a gay tarantella)

Lucky fella

When the stars make you drool just like pasta fazool
That's amore (that's amore)
When you dance down the street
With a cloud at your feet, you're in love
When you walk in a dream
But you know you're not dreaming, signore
'Scusami, but you see
Back in old Napoli, that's amore

(Amore)

Dom DeLuise has always struck me the same way but it appears my GayDar is slightly wonky.
Same for Patrick Stewart.....but in my defense, he's English, after all.....

And his son, Dean Martin Jr, was an F-4 pilot who died in a training accident.

Could you imagine being as rich as DM, Jr and being a fighter pilot as well?

Hey Bob, Google isn't the know all-be all of Hollywood. There are things that happen that don't hit the papers. Having a child and being married don't stop alot of people from being gay in Hollywood. Trust me on this.

Gotta say something about Dino Jr., in light of Eddie Albert's death,Dino was President or a high member of a Hollywood Club that was pro military,and those who served or were serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Yes, back in the early 80's IIRC. And no, Dean Martin wasn't gay. He was from Stuebenville, Ohio for Gods sake!



Um... is there some "anti-gay force field" around Steubenville that might make your statement make sense?

If there IS a God (and I'm just using this as a figure of speech, there is)

TOM CRUISE IS NOT GAY! OR BI! If it "comes out" in several years that he IS (and I'm PRETTY confident he isn't, and it won't) THEN I might have to re-think the whole "God" thing (kidding ... mostly)

IOW, if he IS, we don't want him, YOU can have him BACK!

Um... having a child and being married doesn't stop a lot of people ANYWHERE from being gay. MOST people I know who are DEFINITELY gay (including 2 ex's) were BOTH (at one time) married, and had kids.

Though I frankly wouldn't BET $$ on Dino either way (I RARELY bet on ANYTHING that I don't KNOW the outcome/result)... I doubt if he ever dallied w/the boys. But ya never know... a LOT of folks poo-poohed us when we claimed Rock LONG before he actually came out... (BUT WE knew)same w/the Brady Bunch dad... the guy who played Samantha's Hubby on Bewitched....Liberache, (and on, and on...)

Well, it would HELP if it made SOME sense... or if you were (sorta) joking to use an emoticon or something to convey that... ya know?

Well... Cap'm didn't ask if Dean was a bottom... only if he was gay... as he has some affectations that are, apparently "suspect".... obviously, ALL gay men don't "catch" someone's gotta "pitch" `kay?

Sorry Kacer, How long was he "married" to Nicole Kidman and how many kids did they have?
A straight man can't be with a woman with her looks for long without gettting her knocked-up.
Proof? Demi Moore and child#? how many fathers?

If I had to guess at who was a secret gay. Out of the thousands of actors and entertainers of his day Dean would be one of the last. Maybe second to last to only Sinatra or Lee Marvin. I mean WTF were you hoping or something?
