I particularly liked him as the host of The Gong Show. :)

My favorite car he made was the Batmobile. :)

I took a girl on our first date to see his life movie. Was not the movie I wanted to see but she went with her girlfriends to see so many movies it was all that was left. I still love the CIA's response. To the effect of, "we usually do not comment on this kind of stuff but this is so far out of the realm of reality that we are going to deny it."

Don Rickles died.


Most of his contemporaries are gone, so in that way at least it is not surprising. He wasn't technically a rat pack member, but he ran with them enough to be closely associated.

Jerry Lewis is the only one left from
that time period of Rat Packers. He
never was one, but he knew and was
friends with them, played the same
clubs. The young Jerry Lewis was
brilliant, but he also had an ego as
big as Montana. Read one of the
biographies on him, he was a pip.

Fate : Don Rickles was just another insult comedian in a strip club. But his mother was friends with Frank Sinatra's mother, His Mom talked Frank into checking out his show as a favor to her. As Frank walked to his table Don said. "Hey Frank make yourself at home. Hit somebody"
Instant silence until Frank laughed. Then everybody laughed and Rickles was on his way

Trivia Last Movie with Frank Sinatra Sammy Davis Jr. Dean Martin Shirley Maclaine. It was a stinker as are most last films. Remember watching Pool Hall Junkie, and a very minor speaking was was a pool room owner Rod Steiger.
