Sidney Pythias is a bumbling janitor picked up by cop Mike Damon as a teenage gang member worth saving from delinquency. With Damon's help, Sidney works his way through the Police Academy to become a cop too.
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
Apparently when filmed in early 1953 the aspect ratio was intended as 1.37. Then there is evidence, in a dvdtalk.com review, that it was released as a "Panoramic Screen" film in 1.66:1 format. 1953 was the year that widescreen started, and 1.66 was the basic shape of Paramount's VistaVision.

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

I am a huge fan of Martin and Lewis and this is one of their best movies ever. The chemistry between them was phenomenal, and will always be remembered with nothing but the greatest respect from me. The other reason I liked it was the music in it, Dean had such a sexy voice and Jerry provided the comedy behind it. The color detail was superb, and the entire ensemble cast was really good. The horse in the movie did a really good job too, it amazes me the way they can train animals to do the things they do. I enjoyed the scenes Jerry had with all the animals he took care of, it was just fun. All in all, I recommend this movie to anyone who likes Martin and Lewis, it's a must see.
