The Andrews Sisters on The Dean Martin Show
R.I.P. Patty Andrews, lead singer and last surviving member of The Andrews Sisters, who passed away earlier this week at the age of 94. The gals guest-starred several times on The Dean Martin Show, joining him on the September 29, 1966 episode (pictured above) to sing a medley of Latin-flavored tunes (including two of their own hits), bookended by Dean’s 1955 smash, “Memories Are Made Of This” (l. to r.: Dean, Patty, LaVerne, Maxene).
On a personal level, The Andrews Sisters didn’t always get along — in fact, Patty and Maxene hadn’t been on speaking terms for years before finally reuniting in 1987 to accept their stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame — but in performance, their harmonies were groundbreaking and will forever live on as a legendary legacy of their talent.
