Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis play, respectively, a gambler and an Anita Ekberg–loving movie geek who both accidentally win the same car in a raffle and end up taking an unlikely cross-country road trip side by side. Cartoonist-turned-filmmaker Frank Tashlin’s comedy was Martin and Lewis’s final movie together—it’s as delightfully sardonic as any of their films, even if, according to Lewis, the two stars didn’t speak to each other once in between takes. There is also a dog that drives a car.
