Prior to the release of this movie, a fan had written to 'Screen Stories' magazine, inquiring as to what movie Dean Martin would next be appearing in. The response was that one of the movies would be 'Korea' - but there was no mention of 'Career'. While the movie does have a brief character introduction set during the Korean War, Dean Martin never appeared in a movie called 'Korea'. See more »
Oh, what a lovely name. I love that name. You know, the first man I ever completely destroyed was named Sam. He's a hairdresser now.

I saw this film when I was in High School, 1959, the year it came out, and remember being really impressed with the quality of the acting, and although it was something of a melodrama, it was well cast and the actors brought real meaning to their roles. A young man struggling to become an actor, and Dean Martin as a kind of slick character who befriends him. I've always been a fan of Carolyn Jones, and of course Shirley McClain in those days was excellent too. I haven't seen it in over fifty years, but I grew up with films, great films, during what I consider to be the high water mark of film making in the 40's and 50's, and I remember this film fondly. Recommended.
