Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis croon the blues, go for the gold and paint the town red in this vivacious VistaVision® classic filled with songs, dancing, sight gags and gorgeous gals.
Rick Todd (Martin) is struggling to make it as an artist in The Big Apple. But thanks to his wacky writer friend, Eugene (Lewis), the two pals are about to make a colorful splash in the world of comic books. Eugene dreams up superhero stories in his sleep. Rick writes them down and draws them out. Before they know it, they are a sensation!
Unfortunately, they not only attract the attention of a bevy of screen beauties (Shirley MacLaine, Dorothy Malone, Eva Gabor and Anita Ekberg), but also the attention of the US Secret Service and a gang of Russian spies! A must-have masterpiece for anyone who truly appreciates the fine art of comedy.
“Tashlin's splashy use of colour, and strong contributions from the female leads (including Anita Ekberg in a cameo), help to give the film its wacky, over-heated edge.” - Time Out
“Zany film mixes satire of science fiction comic books with wild comedy about almost anything.” - Classic Film and Television
