Jimmie Tramel: Bruce Lee? Steve McQueen? Snakes? Sink your teeth into for-real Chuck Norris Facts

By Jimmie Tramel Tulsa World  Apr 23, 2018





• A Norris kick once caused Dean Martin to go airborne.

Once upon a time, Norris and Bruce Lee were workout partners. Lee was the stunt coordinator for “The Wrecking Crew,” a 1968 movie starring Martin as agent Matt Helm. Lee told Norris there was a “perfect role” for him in a fight scene.

The scene called for Norris to fight Martin. Norris intended to throw a high, spinning kick over the star’s head. Martin failed to duck.

“I kicked Dean in the shoulder, sending him flying across the room,” Norris said, adding that he ran over to see if Martin was hurt.

Smiling, Martin said he was fine. The next time the sequence was shot, Martin did what he was supposed to do.

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
Just like a guy who's feet are too big for his bed
Nothing seems to fit, those raindrops are fallin' on my head they keep fallin'
So I just did me some talkin' to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he got things done
Sleepin' on the job, oh raindrops are fallin' on my head they keep fallin'
But there's one thing I know, the blues they send to meet me
Won't defeat me, it won't be long 'til happiness steps up to greet me
Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me, 'cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free nothing's worryin' me
(It won't be long 'til happiness steps up to greet me)
Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me, oh I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free nothin's worryin' me

What's on TV: Tuesday, April 24


Murderer's Row (1966)

Fox Classics (pay-TV), 8.35pm

In the mid-1960s, with the James Bond film franchise in full flight, producers around the globe battled to find the best way to cash in on the secret-agent boom. In England, Ralph Thomas tried with Dirk Bogarde in Hot Enough for June (1964). In America, James Coburn famously played Derek Flint in Our Man Flint (1966) and In Like Flint (1967). Dean Martin also picked up a gun and seduced the ladies in four Matt Helm films (1966-68). In the first, The Silencers (Fox Classics, today, midday), Matt thwarts the sinister Big-O organisation and flirts with Gail and Tina, played by major screen sirens Stella Stevens and Daliah Lavi. The film – a not-at-all meaningful spy spoof – was a hit and Murderer's Row followed months later. Evil Big-O is back and Matt again flirts with the leading ladies, this time played by Ann Margaret and Carmilla Sparv. Murderer's is beyond trivial, but sometimes fun, and Dean Martin is effortlessly charming. SM
