The Dean Martin Show ran for nine seasons, airing on NBC from 1965 to 1974. Hosted by legendary entertainer Dean Martin, the unique variety and comedy show was a television pioneer. There were no rehearsals, no re-takes, and Martin simply just wasn't a host behind a desk and a microphone – he took part in virtually all the segments. Whether talking and singing with guests or performing a comedy sketch, Martin put every guest at ease and was able to coax even the most serious actors (such as Orson Welles and Jimmy Stewart) to indulge in their comedic and musical sides. Guests had a great time, word got out, and after the initial success of the show EVERYONE wanted in on the act.
Show regulars such as Rodney Dangerfield, Dom Deluise and Nipsey Russell are featured in recurring comedy sketches on show episodes while guests chosen by Martin included legendary actors and actresses from across the stage and screen, pop and jazz singers, dancers and comedians. Highlights from the one disc and 2-DVD set include guests Get Smart actor Don Adams, Grammy Award-winning singer Tony Bennett, actor, comedian and writer George Burns, actress Florence Henderson in a comedic guest performance prior to the debut of The Brady Bunch, Bob Hope in his only appearance on the show, Sid and Marty Krofft's famed "Krofft Puppets," actor Michael Landon performing several over-the-top song and dance numbers at the height of Bonanza's popularity, comedian and near-show regular Bob Newhart, famed dancer and actress Juliet Prowse, comedian Don Rickles, legendary singer and actress Dinah Shore, distinguished actors Jimmy Stewart and John Wayne, renowned director/actor/writer/producer Orson Welles, comedian and actor Jonathan Winters and more.
The four added DVD's featured in the six-DVD Collector's Edition set include twelve additional shows with guest segments from actor, comedian and playwright Woody Allen, country singer Eddie Arnold, comic actor and writer Sid Caesar, cohort Sammy Davis Jr., comedienne and actress Phyllis Diller, English comedian and actor Marty Feldman, comedian, actor and television show host George Gobel, actor Andy Griffith, Broadway and film star Gene Kelly, comedian and actor Paul Lynde, actress and comedienne Kay Medford, Broadway and film comedienne Ethel Merman, country singer/songwriter Roger Miller, actor Robert Mitchum, actor Charles Nelson Reilly, actor Peter Sellers and many more. Musical guests include the Andrews Sisters, Duke Ellington, and many, many more.
A famed star of the silver screen, television icon, Grammy® Award-winning singing sensation and member of the renowned "Rat Pack," Dean Martin's show business legacy is legendary. His musical career features such classics as "Ain't That A Kick In The Head," "That's Amore," "Mambo Italiano," "Everybody Loves Somebody," "Sway," "Volare," and more, releasing dozens of album recordings over his lifetime. Starring in dozens of well-known movies including Ocean's Eleven, Rio Bravo, The Caddy, and Who Was That Lady?, for which Martin received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor, coupled with a highly popular television career, Dean Martin certainly earned his nickname as the "King of Cool."
