You might be interested to know I spent the week in the Royal Orleans with both Dino and Pat. It was 1967, I was 10. My dad was trying a case in NOLA in federal court, and took me and my sister. Rode the elevator with Pat one day, then saw Dean walk out the stairs later that day (he was scared of getting trapped in elevators). I was supposed to take Dino's pic with my sister's Brownie, but I panicked in the presence of my blood-shot hero. He was the fucking man.

Definitely one of the coolest guys ever. Great singer and actor, and he was funny as hell. In his youth he was a boxer, and when he would do some dancing it showed.
