Dean Martin turned the film down, before the partnership desolved, becuase he didn't want to play a cop, but Lewis turns this black and white story into a personal epic about standing on your own and making a difference (a fitting message for someone who had just launched into a solo career after coming off what was then the biggest act in American history).
Yet another Lewis classic that should be on DVD.
Probably not Lewis' best comedy, but it certainly has its moments. And...surprise! A Lewis film that doesn't end with a broad gag but an earnest dramatic speech? Interesting!
Definitely a keeper for Lewis buffs!
This movie was written by Jerry Lewis for him and Dean Martin. Dean Martin was to play the role of a police officer in this movie but refused because he didn't want to wear a police uniform he offered Jerry to play a detective instead. The famous duo split before the film was made. So... with this said, this was Jerry Lewis's very first movie without has friend Dean Martin. Actor Darrin Mcgavin, played the roll Dean Martin was suppose to play and this was Jerry Lewis's "first" of many smash hits that rocketed him to become a successful artist in his own right and a mega star known as the King of Comedy.
Speaking of which, you will get a 'charge' out of this movie.
