Editorial Reviews

Throughout his long career, with a cocktail in one hand and a cigarette in the other, Dean Martin was the iconic epitome of the carefree, smooth operator. The Dean Martin Double Feature includes Who Was That Lady?, co-starring Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh and How to Save a Marriage (and Ruin Your Life), co-starring Stella Stevens. Dino uses his inimitable style to demonstrate what made the ‘60s swing with these wacky comedies of marital mix-ups.

In Who Was That Lady?, Martin stars opposite real-life husband and wife Tony Curtis (Some Like it Hot, Don’t Make Waves) and Janet Leigh (Touch of Evil, Psycho). Curtis enlists the help of his friend Martin when his wife (Leigh) demands a divorce after catching him kissing one of his students. The guys cook up a cover story that Curtis is working undercover for the FBI, and that the kiss was part of a sting to catch a spy. The gullible Leigh buys the wild fabrication and later, unwittingly touches off a melee that is filmed by TV news crews. Some real Russian spies assume Curtis really is an FBI agent, and kidnap the trio, which kick starts a series of madcap plot twists. Directed by George Sidney, the film also stars Barbara Nichols, Larry Storch and Joi Lansing.

Martin also headlines the bedroom farce How to Save a Marriage (and Ruin Your Life). Single, swinging lawyer David Sloane (Martin) tries to circumvent his friend Harry’s extramarital affair by romancing his secretary, Carol. However, David has seduced the wrong woman; Harry has actually been fooling around with Muriel. When David tells Harry that he's stolen his mistress, Harry isn't sure what's going on, but the message has the intended effect, and Harry patches things up with his wife Mary. But when Carol and Muriel compare notes, they decide that something is fishy, and the two draw up a series of demands — Muriel insists that Harry leave Mary and marry her, while Carol wants David to make it legal with her. Directed by Fielder Cook, the film also stars Jack Albertson and Shelley Morrison (TV’s Will & Grace).

4.0 out of 5 stars Dino pleasantly saunters through December 30, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"How To Save A Marraige (And Ruin Your Life)" has long been one of my favorite Dean Martin films. It's a light romantic farce / drawing room comedy and the pairing between Dean and Stella Stevens works extremely well. Dean's comic timing shines through and here he was at his most likeable suave romantic lead. "Who Was That Lady" is another favorite that, like the other movie, hasn't been seen much in several years. It's a gem that lies somewhere between romantic farce and slapstick. Dean -- as best friend -- plays well off Tony Curtis here, and the absurdity of the plot is what makes this so clever. While these are not Dean's finest film work (not in the realm of "Rio Bravo", for example), you'll enjoy this double feature. Thanks to SONY for putting it out!

4.0 out of 5 stars A buddy flick and a chick flick finally on DVD!! December 17, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's about time these two films were released on DVD! The quality on these is FAR better than the VHS versions. As always, Dean shines as the suave, smooth, debonair bachelor with a wonderful supporting cast, and gorgeous women to boot! In "Lady", his friendship with Tony Curtis is put to the test as they both pose as phony FBI agents. In "Marriage" his "relationship" with Stella Stevens is put to the test as Dean poses as a phony widower. Both of these films are very likable as Dean always manages to put a smile on your face. How does he get in and out of these messes, you'll just have to find out. Don't miss out on this double-feature classic!

3.0 out of 5 stars A good Martin comedy paired with a bad one August 10, 2008
Format:DVD
Dean Martin made quite a few comedies away from the Rat Pack in the 1960s. Most of them were pretty interesting and even the bad ones are worth seeing. This DVD double feature includes one that worked well for me and had me laughing out loud more than a few times and one that didn't work as well and only had me laughing in its last 15 minutes (out of a 115-minute movie).

The good one, HOW TO SAVE A MARRIAGE AND RUIN YOUR LIFE (1968), introduces the necessary characters and relationships and builds up the set of circumstances that leads, quite plausibly, to the misunderstanding that sets the plot in motion. We see how shopgirl Stella Stevens (as beautiful as I've ever seen her) learns something incriminating about her boss (Eli Wallach) that leads to a promotion that buys her silence about the apartment where he keeps a mistress, hence starting the rumor that she herself is the boss's mistress, which leads the boss's best friend, Wall Street investor Dean Martin, to try to save his friend's marriage by seducing the "mistress" away from Wallach and proving to him how unfaithful she really is. When Dean eventually realizes his mistake--and the look on his face in the course of this scene is just priceless--and the extent of the raveling he'll have to do to undo all the unraveling, it just keeps getting funnier. The key here is that for most of the film the audience knows more than the characters do and suspense is generated as we wait for the characters to catch up.

WHO WAS THAT LADY? (1960) never bothers to adequately introduce the characters but instead plunges us into a thoroughly implausible situation with unbelievable, unsympathetic characters whose sheer stupidity is constantly infuriating.

1.0 out of 5 stars Another formerly pressed release now on MOD March 20, 2013
By Howie
Format:DVD
The film is a fun late 70s sex romp with a stellar cast but you already know that. Here's what you may not know...

Sony is fast joining the ranks of Warner Brothers by taking pressed copies of films out-of-print, waiting a few months, and issuing a MOD version at a higher price point. The Sony "Choice Collection" release of "How to Save a Marriage..." is one such title. The transfer used for this MOD is the same as the one used for the OOP The Dean Martin Double Feature - Who Was That Lady / How To Save A Marriage double feature. The differences are the OOP title is pressed and includes a second feature: "Who Was That Lady". Currently *new* copies from marketplace vendors are less than half the price (shipping included) of this MOD. It's the better choice.

The one star is for the MOD release. The OOP version is a 5 star package.

WHO WAS THAT LADY is a 1960 zany comedy with Dean Martin, Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, Tony Curtis' wife at the time. When you toss in the FBI, the CIA and the Russian Intelligence operatives (I use the word intelligence loosely here), you have a comedic first strike.

Curtis is an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Columbia University who is caught by his wife kissing a foreign exchange student. Martin is his best friend who's a writer at CBS who cooks up a hare-brained scheme to convince the wife that her boring husband is a top FBI agent.

With the CBS prop department providing FBI credentials and a revolver, the game is afoot. When the prop master realizes that the FBI credentials were not being used for a show, he contacts the FBI.

James Whitmore plays the stoic FBI agent who investigates. Of course he gets involved with the antics of Curtis and Martin, especially at the Chinese restaurant with shots fired and television news cameras rolling.

The ending in the basement of the Empire State Building is classic. This black and white 115-minute vehicle delivers a great time if you are into old comedies. Picture and sound quality are excellent. 4 stars

HOW TO SAVE A MARRIAGE (And Ruin Your Life) is a classic battle of the sexes. Dean Martin finds himself embroiled in the battle when he attempts to help his old army buddy save his marriage.

Mistaken identify leads Martin to assume that Stella Stevens is the mistress of his army buddy, Eli Wallach. Martin sets out to woo Stevens in order to save Wallach's marriage.

Of course Wallach's mistress is Anne Jackson (his wife in real life) who lives next door to Stevens. A comedy of errors follows for both men.
