(8-Exceptional Film)

Goofy. Entertaining. Fun.

Thinking he killed a man, Larry Todd (Martin) takes it on the lam with a pretty heiress, traveling to her ancestral home on an island said to be haunted. He brings with him his best friend, Myron (Lewis), a hapless and most ridiculous sidekick. I’m no great Jerry Lewis fan. I find him generally annoying, but I love Dean Martin, and this movie was a blast. A decent mystery plot, a haunted mansion, Martin crooning, beautiful leading lady, non-stop jokes, action. It’s all here.
