Dino Solo
10 July 2005 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Ten Thousand Bedrooms has its place in movie history as Dean Martin's first solo effort without Jerry Lewis. It also nearly sunk his career. Good thing The Young Lions came immediately after this and Dino got deserved rave reviews for that one.

To be fair MGM did give him a good supporting cast and apparently spared no expense in filming this on location in Rome. Ever since Roman Holiday, Rome was pretty popular with movie audiences. Three Coins in the Fountain and Seven Hills of Rome did pretty good box office in the 1950s.

But this wasn't a Dean Martin role. I think MGM probably dusted off a property they had offered to Cary Grant and gave it to him. There was no real effort to exploit the unique personality that was Dean Martin.

Nicholas Brodzky and Sammy Cahn wrote four songs for Dino to sing, none of them especially memorable. As if they were hedging their bets, they gave him a comedy number to do with Jules Munshin who plays his valet. Kind of like the material he used to do with Jerry Lewis at Paramount.

According to the definitive biography of Dean Martin by Nick Tosches, Dino turned down the lead in The Pajama Game for this one. Well movie audiences did get to see John Raitt finally do one of his Broadway starring roles for the screen. But Dean would have been perfect opposite Doris Day.

Not his best career move.
