Unscripted and a whole lot of fun! Watch this clip from the Dean Martin TV show, featuring Caterina Valente.
Caterina Valente is a French-born Italian multilingual singer, guitarist, dancer, and actress. She is known as a polyglot, meaning she speaks six languages, and sings in eleven. Caterina Valente’s wide range of talents made her a regular guest on variety television shows on both sides of the Atlantic in the 1960s, back when there were just a handful of channels in most markets. In the US, she made numerous television appearances for one of her most visible and vocal fans at the time, Perry Como.
Here’s another clip from the Dean Martin Show where Caterina spars with Dean in a light-hearted performance of the Brazilian standard – One Note Samba.
