Peter Deluise was one of those actors who, when you first see them, you know who the father was. Like Emilio Estevez (son of Martin Sheen), Kiefer Sutherland (son of Donald), and Miguel Ferrer (son of Jose) -- there's no question; the moment you see 'em, you know.
Deluise the elder was a big part of movies during my adolescence. Those were the days when appearing on a nighttime talk show, especially Carson's, meant you were an entertaining guest, not just that you were pushing your new movie. I recall Dom telling Johnny one night that in his first movie, his name was misspelled in the credits -- it read "Dom De La Lousy"!
