We wrap up our “Sinatra 100” series by remembering a moment that was pure Sinatra. Back at the 1976 Muscular Dystrophy Association telethon, he reunited two of Hollywood’s kings of comedy: Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. The two hadn’t spoken for 20 years before Sinatra brought them together. We’ll talk about that reunion with Lewis himself, and Martin’s daughter Deana. Martin died in 1995.
