From an oral interview, Jan. 2002:
Did you know that Dean Martins dad was my barber? He was. When I was a kid, in Steubenville. He gave me a personality haircut, a windblown bob. Last name was Crichetti (sp?), I cant remember his first name; I know it wasnt Dean. Deans real name wasnt Dean either, it was Dino. But when I worked in Columbus [Ohio], Dean Martin was at a nightclub there. I went to see him. He was a good singer. He didnt know me and I didnt know him. When he was with Jerry Lewis, that first got him into popularity. They were together for quite a long time, then broke up and went their separate ways. Eliz.: Did you like Jerry Lewis? Not particularly. I thought he wasI dont like him today!
