Editorial Reviews

In this domestic romp, Dean Martin and Lana Turner team up as a married couple whose marriage is threatened by Dino's gambling ways. To keep the money in the family, Lana talks Dino's business partner (Eddie Albert) to pose as his bookie. But the strategy backfires as it rouses the ire of mob boss, Tony Gagouts (Walter Matthau) who decides its time to eliminate the competition. Screenwriter and producer Jack Rose adapted the novel, Four Horse-Players Are Missing by Alexander Rose. Directed by Daniel Mann (Come Back, Little Sheba).

"Who's Got the Action?" is one of the films that often gets missed when thinking of Dean Martin. Made right after "Sergeant's 3", and before the very dramatic "Toys in the Attic", this light-hearted comedy has enough Hollywood names in it (Lana Turner is his co-star) to keep you guessing where you've seen their faces before. It's by far NOT Dean's best work, but it's a fun filled breezy comedy like the kind we all grew up with, making for a fun Saturday night. Dean only sings over the credits (unfortunatly), but his scenes with the great Walter Matthau and Eddie Albert are great. The best is with comedian/actor Paul Ford. This was made in 1962... right before Kennedy was killed, and the Rat Pack was in it's glory years. Dean has that twinkle in his eyes that we all love, and never takes himself too seriously. The story is all about betting - horses - bookies and wives... nothing 'heavy' or Academy award winning... but anything with Dino in the lead is just plain fun! I'd give it a "B-" - Neil Daniels (chairman) Dean Martin Fan Center: admin@deanmartinfancenter.com

I have to start of by saying, I love everyting Dean Martin does or says ;) . He's my absolute favorite, and I own everything he ever put on film...some in triplicate...

*Warning, I'm going to lay out the plot, note a specific scene, & make a tiny hint to a small part of the ending. Just so you know in advance ;) *

With all of that, I have to say I ADORE this movies. (The fact it got a "B-" in one review is NUTS!). Lana Turner also happens to be one of my very favorite actresses (this was the third film I saw her in; the first was with John Wayne in The Sea Chase and the second was Bachelor in Paradise with Bob Hope--she sure can pick some good leading men!). She is just wonderful, wonderful, wonderful in this film as Dino's concerned and scheming wife.

Dean, an attorney, has a gambling addiction. He's on a terrible losing streak, and betting on the horses is costing him big time, distracting him from gorgeous Lana, and just generally zapped his once-carefree attitude. Worried he's having an affair, Lana consults his best friend, Eddie Albert, only to learn, to her instense-relief, that he's not great at picking a winner in the third ;) .

So, what's a good concerned wife to do? Have Eddie tell Dino that he should switch and use HIS bookie for better luck, and pose as that bookie, of course! Lana decides to force Eddie to con his buddy Dean into using his wonderful "bookie", when that bookie is actually Lana. Her plan is that, when Dino keeps up losing and gets pushed to the very edge, she'll surprise him and give him back all the money he's lost, and that, of course, will convince him to give up gambling.

But...what if Dean picks a winner?...

That's just what happens.

Dean Martin was always great in this type of light comedy and this film is no exception. The supporting cast is also chock full of great and very FUNNY! Even Walter Matthau overplaying a mob boss (supposed to be an ITATLIAN!? NO attempt at an accent either!) Lana Turner, not generally known for being good at a comic role is also quite good. Look for one of my favorite character actresses who is very sexy in her role here as she was never known for sexy parts: Nita Talbot. A gorgeous transfer 16X9 of the Panavision 2:35 frame is also a wonderful plus, and it makes the film HAPPEN! Now I'd like OLIVE to release the follow up, called WHO'S BEEN SLEEPING IN MY BED? from the same Director, Daniel Mann, again NOT KNOWN for comic pieces.
