5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Like being there, July 16, 2009
This review is from: Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis Collection, Volume Two (Pardners / Hollywood or Bust / Living It Up / You're Never Too Young / Artists and Models) (DVD)
I was there when they made this, I was 16 and looked 16, but they thought I was 18 looking 16. It was summer vacation and my music teacher got me the gig. I drove to Hollywood at 5 in the morning everyday for 2 weeks, I was in one shot, at the school when Dean says "here comes the reception committe now".. a girls band starts out and the music was "face the music", I even remember the words. As I said I was there for 2 weeks, and made 50 dollars a day. We sat on the sidelines and waited in case they needed us for anything else but that one shot, so I made good friends, good money, and good memories. Dean would show up at the last min. and go over a few things, and boom the music would start they would film his song and dance and off he would go. Jerry on the other hand would go over and over his lines and his dances and stay long after to play with the crew. One time a very nicely dressed older man came on the set, Jerry was dancing and all of a sudden he knocked this mans hat off, pulled him down on a bench and began to cut his tie off, I stood there with my mouth open and all of the crew were in stitches, I found out later that he was one of the producers, and Jerry buys him hats and ties galore, and so he felt, I guess, he could distroy any of them he wanted. That was a summer I will never forget, they gave everyone Christmas gifts (Canasta Cards with their faces on them) and some other things, and to this day I remember it just like it was yesterday. By the way it was a cute movie!!!!... Orlean (Cookie) Hoyt

Not here says:
What an incredibly cool footnote to an extraordinary song & dance routine in an extraordinary movie. Wild bit. Seeing your words above makes me glad amazon reviews can occasionally inspire such recollections. Thanks.
