Martin was born on June 7, 1917.

His boxing nickname was a play on his legal name, Dino Crocetti.

Boxing was one of several jobs he held for a short time before hitting it big in show business.  He was also briefly employed as a deliveryman for bootleg liquor, a blackjack dealer and a steel mill worker.
