Hand-crafted from resin, and hand painted, this life-like Dean Martin figurine commands the room from the Celebrity Roast dais and stands 7.5 inches tall; similar collectible figurines sell for as much as $60. But, for the real Dean Martin, look no further than THE DEAN MARTIN CELEBRITY ROASTS: COMPLETE COLLECTION, which follows StarVista Entertainment/Time Life's best-selling releases of "The Dean Martin Variety Show" and marks the first time that most of these classics from the Golden Age of TV will be released on DVD in a single collection.

Featuring all 54 roasts from both "The Dean Martin Show" and "The Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts," the program's notable roastees included many of the 20th century's most accomplished performers and athletes, politicians and personalities including: Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, Johnny Carson, Sammy Davis Jr., Jack Benny, Lucille Ball, Jackie Gleason, George Burns, Don Rickles, Kirk Douglas, Danny Thomas, Gabe Kaplan, Hank Aaron, Wilt Chamberlin, Joe Namath, Muhammad Ali, Ronald Reagan and Dean Martin himself. Among the hilarious highlights you'll see is Rich Little recounting how he "taught" Jimmy Stewart how to do an imitation of Jimmy Stewart, Ruth Buzzi telling the story of her great battle with Muhammad Ali, and Tim Conway on whether or not Don Rickles was ever hit or jailed due to his material.

Any new Benny adventures in the works? Keeps lovin' our most beloved Dino!

Gayle Carline said...

Why, yes, I've started the 4th Peri mystery. After burning much of Benny's house and Dino-memorabilia in The Hot Mess, I now have to restore his home. The mystery will involve his contractor, but I'm sure there will be a lot of Dino-discussions about how to replace the items that were lost!
