Actor Jason Steele plays a caring, godlike doctor on television. Off the set, he's the insecure fiancee of Melissa, a pretty art teacher. Jason doesn't know what to expect of marriage, especially after seeing how the fires have burned out in all of poker buddies' marriages. Complicating matters is that his friends' wives have confused Jason with his television persona and they keep popping up at his house ready to see what his bedside manner is like. Written by

Who's Been Sleeping In My Bed was made at a time when two wise young television doctors ruled the television ratings. Richard Chamberlain as Dr. Kildare and Vincent Edwards as Ben Casey were at their television heights when Dean Martin's satire of their characters hit the big screen.
Had this been done at Universal, this would have been a perfect Rock Hudson vehicle, in fact Hudson probably was the actor best suited for the lead. He had played the earnest and sincere Dr. Bob Merrick in Magnificent Obsession and he probably would have loved to have spoofed that image. But Dino isn't too bad in the part.
Dino's show Dr. Adam is ruling the ratings and he both dispenses medicine and advice, the latter without prescription. He looks so good doing it that the wives of his poker playing buddies, Yoko Tani, Jill St. John, and Macha Meril are falling for that image. And they all try to get at Dino.
All this is really putting a crimp into his marriage plans with Elizabeth Montgomery who was about to debut herself on television in Bewitched. But she's got a girl friend in Carol Burnett who's going to fix everything.
Carol Burnett made her film debut in Who's Been Sleeping In My Bed and imagine Lucy Ricardo as a supporting part and you've got what Carol's doing here. It's like Lucy trying to bring Fred and Ethel together after they've hit a rough patch. She really does steal the film, her best scenes are when she has to strip for her supper in a Tiajuana dive and later when she's showing up in all kinds of places trying to explain to Dino all the schemes she's been pulling.
Dino's poker playing buddies include Martin Balsam, Elliott Reid, Richard Conte, Jack Soo, and Louis Nye. However Johnny Silver as his houseman really gets some very droll lines from the script.
The comedy is a bit dated, it debuted in December of 1963 and was made during the optimistic New Frontier Days. No doubt some of the humor was not well received by a mourning country at that time. Still it does showcase a cast of fine players, especially Carol Burnett.
