Episode Summary

Episode #7

Regular co-host Joey Heatherton was absent from this episode for reasons that are unclear. Filling in for her was guest star Gail Martin, Dean Martin's then-23-year-old daughter, who had served as one of three co-hosts of her father's 1967 summer replacement series (the other two were Vic Damone and Carol Lawrence), and who would return as co-host (with singer Lou Rawls) of the 1969 edition of The Golddiggers summer series. Also guest starring on this episode was Wisa D'Orso, who served as assistant choreographer, and occasional on-camera singer and dancer, on Dean Martin's regular season variety show.

Musical Highlights
Gail Martin: "Every Street's A Boulevard in Old New York" (a song sung by her father and Jerry Lewis in both the motion picture "Living It Up" and several times when the duo hosted The Colgate Comedy Hour)

Wisa D'Orso: "A Shine On Your Shoes"
Frank Sinatra, Jr. & Gail Martin: "Will You Still Be Mine?"
