Hands Down The Best Moment Of All The MDA Labor Day Telethons

 It was the 1976 MDA Labor Day Telethon when Frank Sinatra shocked everyone by bringing out Dean Martin who hadn’t seen his former pardner Jerry Lewis in almost 20 years.

No one was more shocked than Jerry, and the story of how Frank pulled it off would make a good book.

Out of all the great moments from the telethon, including an appearance by John Lennon, this one towers above them all.
