Dean Martin had a talent for comedy, music, and bringing people together. In this segment, he hosts The Mills Brothers for a little bit of fun and musical entertainment.
Martin starts by joking about how difficult it is to read the teleprompter. Then he introduces his next musical guest, The Mills Brothers, a trio of talented singing siblings.
Martin asks how long the Mills Brothers have been singing together. They admit they aren’t sure, but they’d guess about 40 years. Martin jokes that it would take another 40 to get it down.
They all chuckle at his jab. He asks them how to make instrument sounds with their voices. They demonstrate a trumpet and a trombone. When Martin gives it a whirl, he’s not quite as successful.
Once they are all done joking around, Martin invites the Mills Brothers to sing “Paper Doll.” Their voices complement each other wonderfully for a harmonious melody that everyone can enjoy.
Dean Martin’s easygoing nature and the Mills Brothers’ incredible talent are such a treat to watch. All of these gentlemen look so dapper in their freshly pressed suits and bowties.
The compatibility of these dynamic singers creates a video that you’ll want to watch again and again. Enjoy this throwback featuring Dean Martin and the Mills Brothers to the era of crooner music!
