In the year of our Dino 1983, our main man, after decades of bein' absent from makin' the scene in England, consented to do a series of concerts at the Apollo Victoria Theater. In addition to doin' the concerts our Dino was hugely homaged by receivin' the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Variety Club of Great Britain at a beau-ti-ful bash that also celebrated his 66th birthday.
The Dino-celebration and live concert were filmed by Showtime and the vid clip below shared by Mr. Johan Nilsson, contains marvelous moments from the Variety Club's touchin' and tender tribute as well as a few minutes of our Dino's marvelous monologue from the concert. After years of waitin' with bated breath, the DVD featuring 60 minutes of live footage from our Dino's show at London's Apollo Victoria theatre show in 1983 is now available as disc four on the Dino-collection tagged "Dean Martin Collected Cool."
In addition to the highlights of the Dino-party and Dino-concert, the first moments of the vid includes portions of an 1977 interview with Mr. Sammy Davis Jr. conducted by Mr. Bruce Forsyth inqurin' of Sammy why our Dino had not returned to British soil.

He not only did a concert at the Apollo Victoria Theater, but he also celebrated his 66th birthday and received a lifetime achievement award from the Variety Club of Great Britain.
