This Dinah Shore special is actually more like "Laugh-In" with guests Lucille Ball and Diana Ross. Dan Rowan, Dick Martin, and Gary Owens are also on hand. Sketches include "The Story of the Singing Detective" featuring Dinah as the title role and Lucy as a songstress who murders with her voice; "The Fairy Godmother's Revenge," a spoof of fairy tales with Diana Ross as Snow White contending with dwarfs on strike at the gold mine and an angry Fairy Godmother (Lucy); and a sketch about how "The Whitebread Family" makes good in show business. Songs include: "Both Sides Now" (Dinah), "Aquarius / Let the Sunshine In" (Diana), "The Windmills of Your Mind" (Dinah), and "Cryin' Time" (Dinah).
