I think doctors should be able to prescribe these DVDs to patients diagnosed with depression - I just can't help but grin whenever I see him on the screen. Dean was a far funnier comedian than Jerry Lewis, and that is true. He could also sing rather well.
Destroy: Practically nothing pre-1973.
You could do a lot worse than just buying the rest of those box sets. There's another three in the series, IIRC. All great.

Disagree totally, but Dean was hilarious and at their best they were truly a TEAM -- which was usually obliterated in nearly all their films. Search the budget DVDs of their TV Colgate Comedy Hours, where they pretty much go off-script in every single sketch and have a blast doing it.
The Dean '70s variety shows are compelling for his completely unrehearsed brio (and the caveman sexism).

What's the best Dean Martin compilation? My brother asked for something from him and I'm not sure which period or what compilation to get.
