THE GOLDDIGGERS OF
THE DEAN MARTIN COMEDY HOUR
& THE RAT PACK TOUR

Beyond Our Wildest Dreams propels the reader back to the glory days of The Rat Pack, dazzling Las Vegas of the 1970s & '80s, and the end of the television variety show era.

It's the autobiography of two Philadelphia teen beauty queens who went on to share the stage (and their lives) with Dean Martin for almost twenty years in his opening act The Golddiggers and on his television series and specials.

Along the way The Alberici Sisters, Maria (Alberici) Lauren & Linda (Alberici) Eichberg, worked and played with Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Jerry Vale, Donald O'Connor, Tom Jones,Louis Prima, Milton Berle, Jonathan Winters, Dom Deluise, Sammy Davis, Jr, Wayne Newton, Gene Kelly, and other legends of the screen and Las Vegas stage.

Anyone interested in Dean, Frank, the glory days of Vegas, and the final years of the legendary Rat Pack will love this book!

The Golddiggers with Frank Sinatra

(Martin Scorcese's next film will be a Frank Sinatra biopic so this book is a natural to capitalize on what's sure to be an explosion of people interested in this subject a year from now.)

But it's not all glitz and glamour - it's also the story of a large Italian family led by a domineering father who's radical ideas on health and nutrition were decades ahead of their time and a sometimes glamorous mom of nine children with a quirky show biz background.

The dark side of show business rears its ugly head as the ladies tour with the sleazy Cotton Club murder victim Roy Radin and just miss what may be the deadliest mob hit of all time with 165 innocent people left dead.

And for the first time you'll hear how Dean & Frank split for good - from Dean's side of the story.

Folks across a wide spectrum of the entertainment industry are participating in this book. This amazing tale unfolds in the words of the people who were there - the musicians, writers, performers, and producers who brought us the Dean Martin TV shows, Dean's stage show, and Frank & Dean's last successful tour together in 1977.

Plus... loads of untold show business stories about stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Fred Astaire, Peggy Lee, Anthony Newley, Ronnie Spector, George Goble, Henry Winkler, and so many others. (We're only halfway into it now!)
