One of the greatest comedy teams reached new entertainment heights in this beloved film that mixes Martin and Lewis trademark hilarity with a heart-tugging story of friendship. Dean Martin stars as Bill Miller, a struggling, 1930s vaudeville singers whose small act could use a bigtime boost. Help arrives in the form of fall-down funny comic Ted Rogers (Jerry Lewis). Teamed together, Miller and Rogers climb to the top of the showbiz heap, but as their success grows, so does Miller s ego. When Miller suddenly fires Rogers, he figures he s bound for stardom what he gets is a tough lesson in what it means to be a class act and the realization that his ex-partner wasn t just a stooge he was a star.
