Trivia

The Celebrity Roasts were heavily scripted and represented the last gasp of the venerable The Dean Martin Comedy Hour (1965), which began on NBC in 1965. The first deviation from Martin's variety format began in the ninth season, when Hugh M. Hefner was "roasted". The roast format consumed the show in the tenth season, but as the season progressed Martin, never overworked, seemed stressed with personal problems related to marriage with Kathy Hawn (they divorced in 1976). Many "reaction" shots of Martin on the later roasts would actually be edited from earlier roasts (relatively easy due to him wearing a trademark tuxedo). The last roastee would be Michael Landon, an encore appearance. See more »

Now these were Celebrities!
23 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dean Martin was one of America's greatest legends in the entertainment industry. He is sorely missed even to this day. He honors or roasts his beloved friend and American icon, Frank Sinatra, in one of his many roasts. In my opinion, even the half-hour infomercial is far more entertaining than anything on television today. I miss people like Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, and so many others. There are more people who are gone than living with us like Don Rickles, Peter Falk, and Ruth Buzzi. Frank Sinatra's roast is pretty relaxed from what we know. We're glad to see celebrities cut loose and be themselves and poke fun at this man. Nobody will ever have the roasts that Dean ever put together in Las Vegas. Of course, people were smoking cigarettes (God forbid that you display any smoking on television anymore) and drinking liquor and being human anymore. Those days are gone forever and now you have a bit of history with these episodes. Even though they drank and smoke, they always appear to be having fun at themselves.
