Watch The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast: Frank Sinatra - Alternative Versions.
From the beautiful Ziegfeld room in Las Vegas Nevada, Dean Martin
welcomes some of the greatest celebrities from all over the world (all
of them American). As usual the Roastmaster is the only one not to
rehearse, and Sinatra helps him out with the auto cue. George Burns
gets the first turn roasting 'The Leader' and settles down to take a
little nap after-wards. See the honorable Ronald Reagan, then former
governor of California and ultimate nice guys Jimmy Stewart & Gene
Kelly trying to be funny and mean. This turns out to be impossible for
both of them, so Jimmy reads one of his poems while Gene ends up
showing old movie clips (that get so much applause you might think Gene
and Frankie were dancing there on stage). They might as well have tried
telling jokes, for none behind the dais dare to be caught with their
mouth closed, or even smiling: they have to be grinning or falling over
laughing all the time. Orson Welles especially looks like hes weeping.
Always uncomfortable playing themselves, Dom Deluise and Jonathan
Winters pretend to be Sinatra's personal chef and ex-chauffeur. Milton
Berle takes the opportunity to insult the man formerly known as 'The
Lean Lark' as well as the three African American Roasties: Flip Wilson,
LaWanda Page and Redd Foxx. Although they get their chance to
retaliate, none of them seems to get more than a minute of air time. By
comparison Peter Falk is on for over fifteen minutes, stealing the show
after unexpectedly turning up in the audience as Lt. Columbo. After
him, the equally unannounced Ruth Buzzi as Gladys Ormfby and Charlie
Callas as a mob boss simply cannot compete. Strangely enough Buzzi (who
managed to fire of some of the raunchiest jabs) keeps her Gladys outfit
on for the rest of the evening, while Peter and Charlie change into a
tux. Another nice surprise is when Ernie Borgnine reprises the part of
Fatso from "From here to eternity".
TV stars Telly Savalas and Jack Klugman don't have much to add, but
Orson Welles talks eloquently about "the world's first finger snapping
pope" and speaks a bit of Italian. Red Buttons does not look very happy
to follow him, but still manages to get some of the biggest laughs,
with Klugman and Fatso jumping up from the table with mirth (of course
they had been sitting there for over an hour by this time). Indeed, the
show does seem to go on forever, with one tux taking it's turn on the
dais after the other. Something like this could never be done nowadays,
but back in the seventies a TV special with so many big name stars
reaching back all the way to the forties really was something to stay
home for. Still, the yap yap yapping just goes on and on and on and you
know we ain't there yet as long as there are still people sitting
there, blowing smoke till it's their turn.
Rich Little comes up from off stage, of maybe he was just sitting at
the very end of the table, and proceeds to impersonate everybody who
came before (except Swoonatra himself). A special surprise guest is Ol'
blue Eyes' favourite body guard Gilly (a name that often slipped into
his lyrics, like on his rendition of 'Mrs Robbinson'). Don Rickles is
the final roaster (but makes sure to tell us he's just kidding), before
Dean proclaims his Pallie Frank not just the man of the hour, but of
the century. In return 'The Voice' spills the beans on Deano by saying
his drunk act is just that. Frankie always had to have the last laugh.
He was the first member of the Ratpack and the last to go. Speaking of
the Pack: apparently Sammy Davis Jr. and Joey Bishop were out of favour
in 1977, for neither of them got an invitation.
