| Martin and Lewis
Homer Flagg (Jerry Lewis) is not terribly excited to take over an isolated New Mexico train station. He hops onto a train hoping to hitch a ride to New York City. It goes wrong and he gets radioactive. Cynical reporter Wally Cook (Janet Leigh) wants to write a story giving the dying country bumpkin a final tour of NYC. His best friend Dr. Steve Harris (Dean Martin) tells him that he's perfectly healthy and the radiation is all a mistake. When Wally shows up, they both fall head over heels. Homer is eager to go to New York and Steve is perfectly happy to lie to the beautiful reporter.

The fun Martin and Lewis pairing is in full swing here. At first, I figured this is missing the love triangle opportunity. When the triangle actually happens, I figured it's a mistake. The timing of the triangle is off. Homer needs to be more in love at first. So when he's under the bed, his sacrifice is more heart-breaking and he needs to have the ready partner all along. Overall, this highlights the fun chemistry of the legendary pair and Leigh is an appealing trophy.
