That was disturbingly awesome.

I'm so damned old that I saw this when it was originally broadcast. His Burt Lancaster & Kirk Douglas impressions were always my favorite.

Why doesn't Kristen Chenoweth(or Timberlake or anyone else) have a variety show?

That's what would happen when you signed a contract with a big studio in the mid 60s--they make you go on shows and make an ass of yourself.  I mean, the guy's trying.  But the writing and choreography are so bad.

He looks so much like both of them.
I remember this live too. I also remember always thinking during the "In Living Color" intro..how nice it would be to have a color TV! We didn't go color until '73.
We always used to say during a really colorful show, "Gosh, this would look so good in color".

Anyone notice that Warner Brothers took up Gorshin's idea of guest Batmen and Robins?He was also great in Star Trek. White on the left side...

I hear you. It was at least the mid-70s before my grandma bought a color TV. She didn't feel a need to replace our B & W console TV until it was beyond repair.

It is shocking these kind of shows existed.

What's more shocking is that they still don't.

I was born in 81, and my parents being poor as dirt when we were younger, I only had black-and-white until I was 5. We didn't divest all of them until I was at least 13. My Niece (6) who has never lived without HDTV didn't believe me until I found one in a dumpster dive at an old electronics repair shop and showed her.

It would be more shocking if he was at all sober.

Check out the Carol Burnette show.  It's chock full of awesome.

My dad had a drama class with this guy as one of the other students.
He decided to study business after that.

He quit drinking. Now he just freezes it and eats it like a popsicle.

I wonder how many Farker know who Frank Gorshin or Dean Martin from Harold Lloyd or Theda Bara.

We weren't rich, but we weren't exactly poor either. However, back in the mid-60s a color TV cost around $350-400, whereas the average monthly income back then was $450-500. Many folks couldn't afford to spend a month's income for a luxury item.

Big Harold Lloyd fan, have the big box set that Sony put out years ago.  My Grandpa thought he was Better than Chaplin and Keaton.  In fact, one year, Lloyd actually out grossed
 Chaplin  in the theaters.

LrdPhoenix: Is it just me or is Dean Martin incredibly drunk?


It was an act.  Dean Martian did not drink heavily while he was working: It was usually apple juice/Ginger Ale in his glass.

Yup. Being the boozy womanizer was his 'schtick'. With as much improv as the Rat Pack did in their shows, he couldn't be that drunk and still come up with the remarks, much less memorize/remember the set jokes Joey Bishop wrote out earlier in the day.

And they weren't all that reliable, either.

I have all the Dean Martin shows on DVD and he's drunk in every single one of them.  But that's what made him so damn funny.
