The story goes that Dean Martin was reluctant to do a variety show because he did not want to turn down lucrative movie and nightclub offers. So he set deliberately outrageous terms: he demanded a high salary and that he would only show up for the actual taping of the show. To his surprise network executives at NBC agreed, and the rest is TV history!
Dean Martin ruled the television airwaves in the late '60s and early '70s with a show featuring a who's who of high-octane guests from music, film and TV. Dean never rehearsed, smoked non-stop, and always had a drink in hand and people loved it! With his easygoing charm and incomparable talent he was a natural on TV.
Step Back In Time:
The Dean Martin Variety Show first aired in 1965 and remains a one-of-a-kind in the history of TV. A block-buster 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: Jack Benny, George Burns, Jonathan Winters, Bob Hope, Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne, Orson Welles, Don Rickles, Dom DeLuise, Don Adams, Rodney Dangerfield, Sammy Davis Jr., Andy Griffith, Paul Lynde, Lou Jacobi, Nipsey Russell, Dinah Shore, Michael Landon, Peggy Lee, Jack Jones, Juliet Prowse, Joel Grey, Sid and Marty Krofft Puppets 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.
-Available in three configurations: single DVD, 2-DVD set and 6-DVD Collector's Edition.
-Each DVD release will contain over ONE HOUR OF BONUS FEATURES, including exclusive interviews with guests from The Dean Martin Show, including Bob Hope, Dom DeLuise, and Dean's daughter Gail, a regular guest on the show.

Thank you, Mary and Pete Sardaro
Come on thirty dollars for some DVDs of out of print shows should at least have a decent case when Time Life is only paying 12 cents per show for rights to publish.
If you do buy this, make sure you have extra DVD cases around to keep these from getting scratched. It is frustrating that each time I open the case, the DVDs fall out.
Did not play at all xxxxxx
Would like number disc replace. Please respond ???
