When the bull throws Malcolm after a short ride, you can briefly see a rope around its neck, presumably used by the stunt double. But the rest of the bull scenes show no rope. See more »
Boy, I'm lucky. Do you know when I first found out I was lucky?
When I entered the "Send in a Poochy Pup Dog Food jingle for the Poochy Pup Dog Food" jingle contest. You wanna hear how it goes?
No, but I will.

"Hollywood or Bust" was the last of Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin musical comedies and a very good one. Although it is not as bracingly innovative and riotous as Tashlin's "Artists and Models", I kept laughing throughout.
Some hilarious and enjoyable scenes come to mind: The opening moments in the movie theater where Lewis is ruining a woman's hair with popcorn; the rousing musical number "A Day in the Country" (Martin and Lewis in a car) which is Tashlin's homage to the "Beyond the Blue Horizon" number in Lubitsch's 1930 musical "Monte Carlo"; and there is Lewis' imitation of Rudolph Valentino's "Blood and the Sand".
Sure it can be silly and puerile at times, but it's a lot of fun.
