Starring Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, Shirley MacLaine, Dorothy Malone, Eva Gabor, Anita Ekberg
(7-Very Good Film)
Colorful. Zany. Fun.
Colorful, manic collaboration between Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, this musical comedy marks the pair’s 14th film together. Martin plays a struggling comic artist who uses the dreams of his hapless roommate for material. Madness and romance ensue. I personally preferred Martin’s smooth crooning to Lewis’ over the top wackiness but Artists and Models is consistently fun and entertaining. Lots of beautiful women including Dorothy Malone and Shirley Maclaine is a plus.
