Jerry Lewis playfully biting Frank Sinatra’s ear

They may be wearing formal suits, but comedian Jerry Lewis and music icon Frank Sinatra certainly look like they're having fun!

While we’re not sure just what the occasion was that put Jerry and Frank together in one room in this photo, nor when was it taken, we do know that Frank is a long-time friend of Dean Martin – one of his co-members in the famous Rat Pack and the other half of the famed Martin and Lewis duo of the late ‘40s.

As their mutual friend, Frank played a huge part in the reconciliation of Jerry and Dean following the split of their tandem in 1961. In 1976, Frank orchestrated the reunion of the two during Jerry’s annual Muscular Dystrophy Association telethon in which Dean made a surprise appearance.

Watch a video of this happy event below. Frank introduces Martin around the 31-second mark:
