Best of the 1970's Variety Talk Shows
25 January 2015 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

Dinah! was an afternoon variety talk show similar to Merv Griffin and Mike Douglas, in the same era, and in my opinion the best of those--my mother used to watch it and I saw many episodes in the summers when school was out. Dinah Shore was a famous singer in the 1950s-1960s, and often sang on the show.

Guests included every star of screen, records, and TV you can think of, from Bob Hope, Zsa Zsa Gabor and Burt Reynolds to Michael Jackson, Debbie Reynolds and Vincent Price.

I sure wish Dinah! was available on DVD! Orson Welles, Sammy Davis Jr., Henry Fonda, Shirley MacLaine, Olivia Newton-John, Raquel Welch, Helen Reddy, Frankie Valli -- Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1976! -- George C. Scott, Sean Connery, Victor Borge, Jeff Bridges -- hundreds more stars, see the IMDb cast list for yourself!
