Who can be romantically linked to Dean Martin...and how closely?
A Winter Romance is a Christmas album recorded by Dean Martin between July and August, 1959 and released on November 16, 1959 (see 1959 in music). The backing orchestra was conducted by Gus Levene. It was Martin's first holiday themed album for Capitol Records. The original artwork featured a picture of Dean embracing a fetching young woman. At the same time, he is throwing a passing flirt at a second, attractive woman.
He and Jerry Lewis recorded a radio spot promoting their film The Caddy (1953), and noticing the tape was still rolling, decided to improvise additional radio spots, with Jerry slipping profanities into his dialog. The unedited master recording was surreptitiously taken from the studio and made into a "bootleg" record that sold briskly among collectors.
Despite the legend that he and comedy partner Jerry Lewis always despised each other, the two were actually quite close friends and the tension between the two began in 1956, when "outside people" (as Lewis called them to Peter Bogdanovich) began to "poison" Martin against Lewis. Frank Sinatra eventually staged a public reunion over 20 years after they stopped speaking to each other. Over the next 10 years they became close again.

On James Stewart: There`s a statue of Jimmy Stewart in the Hollywood Wax Museum, and the statue talks better than he does.
