Editorial Reviews

Dean Martin never rehearsed, he smoked non-stop, and always had a drink in hand... and people loved it! Now available at retail for the first time ever, this special 3DVD 'uncut' set captures all the great jokes, the best music and the memorable moments that made The Dean Martin Variety Show a blockbuster on NBC for nearly a decade! 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 re-mastered in this special collection.

UPDATE (6/21/12):

THIS JUST IN: One month after The Dean Martin Variety Show Uncut was released, The Golddiggers Super Site has learned exclusively that a 4th Dean Martin Show DVD set is in the works... Also: Guthy-Renker has pulled its Dean Martin Show volumes from the market (this time, forever)...Plus: The most thorough REVIEW and analysis of the new DMS Uncut DVDs to be found anywhere.

If you're a fan of Dean and his series and care about its future course, you won't want to miss our extensive coverage, which can be found simply by entering into any search engine the words: Updates/TheGolddiggers Super Site


As those who have either purchased or simply read about past DVD releases of Dean Martin Show material are all too aware, many of the musical numbers from the original programs have gone missing from the home video editions, as casualties of the often prohibitively high cost of licensing reuse rights from music publishers, composers, and their estates. But fans of Dean's series who've long lamented this frustrating situation now have new cause to rejoice, with the imminent rollout of this forthcoming collection from Time-Life.

As its title suggests, The Dean Martin Variety Show Uncut at last delivers what Dino enthusiasts have long wished for: whole, unedited episodes -- in this case, 6 of them, drawn from the first 6 years of the series' run, digitally remastered on 3 DVDs.

If anyone wants complete versions of Dean Martin's Variety Show released to the public, it is I, along with thousands of fans worldwide! I was so lucky to have been there at NBC, as a network executive, for every taping of Dean's Variety Show during it's nine-year run. There was nothing like Dean's show, and there will never be anything like it again. The stars and celebrities that walked through those doors were overwhelming! Even the folks behind the scenes were like a loving family. Dean himself was just as you saw him on the screen, and the bond that I formed decades ago is still with me today!

If it were not for Time-Life investing in previous Dean Martin show releases, there would not be this third installment of Dean's Variety Show on DVD. Mainly because of legal reasons, the previous two sets had some of Dean's songs edited out. Now, for the first time, six of Dean's shows from his nine-year span on NBC are able to be released with all the songs intact (minus one song which could not be restored from the original master).

It is with great honor and satisfaction that I have been able to help Time-Life, almost forty-some years later, to present to a younger generation what a phenomenon Dean's show was like. It's even a bigger thrill to bring back those wonderful memories for the rest of us "older" folks to remember.

Once again, Lee Hale is the "hands on" creative consultant on this DVD release. Lee was the shows' original (Emmy nominated) "Special Materials" person and Musical Director. Lee Hale was also nominated for Emmy Awards in producing and editing. Because of Lee Hale, these releases have all the original flavor and continuity of the original broadcasts -- only more vibrant with re-mastering of the ORIGINAL color tapes of the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Show over and I was still smiling May 28, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What a joy to finally see some of Dean's old shows intact with no cuts! And despite what one of our reviewers said, the video and audio quality is excellent considering the master tapes are over 40 years old. It was great seeing the guest stars (and quite a variety it was), all of whom I remembered well, but I think as I am now not a kid any longer that I actually am appreciating some of them far more than I did at the time. I was such a fan that I can actually remember sitting in Mr. Davis' biology class and not being able to concentrate because I was thinking that Dean was on that night. And it's sort of the same now, because as each of these programs ending I would sit there for a couple of minutes and find myself still grinning with enjoyment.

Yes, with the old variety shows, sometimes you had to sit through performances of people you didn't always appreciate, but Dean's shows more than made up for that with the spontaneity and good-natured humor that was always there.

I hope Time-Life does more of these. I'll buy everyone they put out and I relish sitting there and living the joy all over again!

5.0 out of 5 stars worth waiting for June 8, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am absolutely delighted with my purchase. I grew up watching this wonderful show & purchased this strictly because it is UNCUT...I refuse to invest in DVD sets that promise "The Best Of..." only to realize the DVD producers' idea of "Best Of" is definitely not mine & these wonderful shows don't deserve to be destroyed by editing. I hope TimeLife releases more of these wonderful UNCUT collections.
