Marketing Mayhem!: Selling Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis to Post-War America (in color!) (Paperback)
NEW SPECIAL EDITION NOW with more than 300 full color images
Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis were a comedic earthquake unlike anything the world had previously seen. In this 75th anniversary year of the teaming of Dean and Jerry (and conversely, the 65th anniversary of their split) it is important and rewarding to look back and analyze the impact this comedy duo had on the entertainment world - and the lives of their fans.
This book does so with affection and gratitude, celebrating the duo's films, television shows and recordings and the many ways in which the marketing teams of Paramount, NBC, Capitol and other Mad Men sold them to America. Join author and collector Rick Greene as we take a tour through over one thousand images of posters, newspaper ads, lobby cards, record jackets, promotional and retail merchandise, publicity photos and other marketing vehicles. Their personalities continue to fascinate, their legend to enthrall, their comedic footprint to influence modern comedy.
