Storyline

Herman owes a lot of gambling debts. To pay them off, he promises the mob he'll fix a horse, so that it does not run. He intends to trick his animal-loving cousin, Virgil, an apprentice veterinarian, into helping him. Of course, he doesn't tell Virgil what he is really up to. Mistaken identities are assumed, while along the way, Virgil meets a female vet and Herman falls for the owner of the horse. Goons and mobsters are also lurking around; so beware! Written by erasmus

Trivia

Jerry Lewis got his start in show business doing what was known as a "record act"--comically lip-synching to a phonograph record. He does a portion of it during the "serenade" sequence. See more »

Goofs

Even though the story is supposedly taking place in the early 1930s, before the repeal of prohibition (1933), all the automobiles are of the late 1930s/early 1940s variety. All the women's hair styles and fashions are from 1953. See more »

Quotes

Virgil: They tell me when you ride you ride as if you were a part of the horse. Would that be a compliment, Sir?

Lots of Fun in Three Dimensions or Two
11 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of my two favorite Martin & Lewis films (the other being Artists and Models), this one was originally released in 3-D. I had the pleasure of seeing it that way a few years ago at the first 3-D fest held at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, but the added depth really didn't make that much difference in being able to enjoy it.

Based on material by Damon Runyon (Guys & Dolls), much of it is typical Martin & Lewis fare, re-teaming them with heavy Robert Strauss and with Sheldon Leonard thrown into the mix for good measure. This may not be their absolute best, but it would be worth seeing if only for the scene that spoofs Cyrano de Bergerac to hilarious effect as Dean croons "I Only Have Eyes For You" before things go off the rails for Jerry.
