The Wrecking Crew Lobby Card
I am a huge, huge, huge, HUGE fan of Dean Martin’s Matt Helm movies. They’re almost TOO fun, if we’re being honest. They make you forget the troubles around you, the sickness, the madness… all of it. They’re downright therapeutic if you ask this Dean Martin fan.
The Wrecking Crew (1968) stars Dean Martin, Sharon Tate, and Elke Sommer. This was the only film in the Matt Helm series where James Gregory didn’t play MacDonald…. and, I’ll add, he was missed.
Although there was another Matt Helm movie in the works, this was the last one in the series. Dean Martin was so distraught over the murder of his co-star and friend Sharon Tate in August 1969 that he abandoned the series altogether.
