The original screenplay by Erna Lazarus concerned the adventures of a down-on-her-luck ex-chorus girl and a con man as they made their way to California. It was conceived as a vehicle for Shirley Booth and Humphrey Bogart. By the time Frank Tashlin got through re-tooling it for Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, it bore little resemblance to the original script. Nevertheless, Lazarus retained the sole writing credit.

Apparently, Tashlin was a little confused about Paramount's production schedule: Malcolm mentions having seen the Burt Lancaster adaptation of The Rainmaker, which would not come out until after Hollywood or Bust was already released. See more »
But remember, I'd have never known about the phony ticket or the stealing if you didn't tell me, which means you're very noble. You're as noble as Abraham Lincoln or Raymond Massey.

It's hard to believe that this was Martin and Lewis' last film. It was reported that they could barely stand each other to make this film--this is hardly evident when you watch it. There are some great laughs in the film, such as the beginning when Jerry spills popcorn in the lady's hair.
Some great comedic stuff is provided by the dog, Mr. Bascom. There is an especially cute segment where he meets and "falls in love" with Anita Eckberg's dog. Oops....don't want to give too much of it away.
All in all this is a very funny movie, and well worth buying or renting.
