FRANK & DINAH'S DAZZLING DUET - THE DINAH SHORE CHEVY SHOW - NBC-TV - CIRCA 12/09/62
Nothing could be finer than Frank swingin' with Miss Dinah... in living color.
There is little for KINESCOPE HD to offer as narrative or context for the superlative, mischievous, vibrant performance that two legends of American popular music, Sinatra and Shore, presented to viewers of THE DINAH SHORE CHEVY SHOW on Sunday evening, December 9, 1962.
Ms. Shore's 60 minute, musical/variety/comedy series, sponsored by the Chevrolet Division of General Motors, was lavishly mounted, technically innovative, highly rated and award winning. It was a wholesome,welcome,family viewing experience for over a decade on the NBC Television Network.
Austere in staging, yet sophisticated in execution, the brassy duet is, in my humble opinion, an archetypal variety show segment from the immediate, post-Eisenhower-era.A time when television's primetime, network, tv schedules were replete with studio-based music and comedy
Here, from the DONGEHRINGER YOU TUBE site, are Dinah Shore and Frank Sinatra, singing and swinging on a Sunday night for Chevrolet.Enjoy!!!!! :)
