Dean Martin: Best of the Dean Martin Variety Show
The Dean Martin Variety Show first aired in 1965 and remains a one-of-a-kind in the history of TV. A blockbuster on NBC for almost ten years, it captivated the public thanks to an entertainer who could do it all. Dean and his incredible celebrity guests fascinated us with songs and outrageous comedy skits. Guests include: Bob Hope, Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne, Orson Welles, Don Rickles, Dom DeLuise, Don Adams, George Burns, Michael Landon, Peggy Lee, Jack Benny, Nipsey Russell, Rodney Dangerfield, Dinah Shore, Jonathan Winters, Sammy Davis Jr., Paul Lynde, Andy Griffith, Bob Newhart, Tony Bennett, Phyllis Diller, Sid Caesar, Florence Henderson, Duke Ellington, The Andrews Sisters, Tim Conway, Frank Gorshin, Lainie Kazan, Debbie Reynolds, Marty Feldman, Pat Cooper, Gene Kelly, Kay Medford, Eddie Albert, Elke Sommer, David Janssen, Charles Nelson Reilly, Ralph Edwards, Ethel Merman, Roger Miller, George Gobel, Robert Mitchum, Shecky Green, Woody Allen, Kate Smith, Phil Silvers, Janet Leigh, Lena Horne, Zero Mostel, Buddy Ebsen, Jack Jones, Juliet Prowse, Joel Grey, Sid and Marty Krofft Puppets, Lou Jacobi and many more! Who can forget how Dean made his weekly entrance sliding down a fireman's pole onto the stage, and how he read his dialogue directly from cue cards. If he flubbed a line or forgot a lyric, Martin would not do a retake, and the mistake - and his recovery from it - went straight to tape and onto the air! Now all of those golden memories have been digitally restored and remastered in this exclusive collection featuring rare magical performances by the greatest stars of all time.
