The King of Cool: The Best of the Dean Martin Variety Show
DVD ($59.95)

In the 1960s and early '70s, Dean-o was TV's coolest cat, sliding down a bachelor-pad pole every week into his soundstage "living room" to kick of an hour-long prime-time party. This roundup of memorable moments, cherry-picked from 18 episodes and stretched across 6 DVDS, includes the comedy of Red Buttons, Mickey Rooney, Sid Caesar, Bill Cosby and Bob Newhart, and musical performances from Ella Fitzgerald, Liberace, Herb Albert and The Supremes, among other retro-rewind nuggets.
