Herman owes a lot of gambling debts. To pay them off, he promises the mob he'll fix a horse, so that it does not run. He intends to trick his animal-loving cousin, Virgil, an apprentice veterinarian, into helping him. Of course, he doesn't tell Virgil what he is really up to. Mistaken identities are assumed, while along the way, Virgil meets a female vet and Herman falls for the owner of the horse. Goons and mobsters are also lurking around; so beware! Written by erasmus

Did You Know?


Jerry Lewis got his start in show business doing what was known as a "record act"--comically lip-synching to a phonograph record. He does a portion of it during the "serenade" sequence. See more


Even though the story is supposedly taking place in the early 1930s, before the repeal of prohibition (1933), all the automobiles are of the late 1930s/early 1940s variety. All the women s hair styles and fashions are from 1953. See more

Where are the laughs? 1 December 2010 | by MartinHafer – See all my reviews

This is an odd Martin & Lewis film because while it s pleasant enough viewing, it really didn t seem like a comedy. After all, isn t a comedy supposed to have some laughs? Well, this one didn t and sure could have used an infusion of humor. Now this is not to say it s a terrible film, but inserting a gimmicky funny race at the end just was too little too late for the humor department.

The film begins with Dean playing his usual sort of role--a heal. He is in debt to gamblers who are ready to beat him senseless (or worse) but decide to give him one more chance. If he agrees to fix an upcoming horse race, they ll not beat him half to death! So, having little choice, he decides to enlist the help of his spastic cousin (Jerry). However, Jerry really is just a nice animal lover and wants nothing to do with Dean s dirty tricks. Why Jerry eventually agrees to help him seemed a bit confusing, but help him he did. Along the way, both meet pretty ladies and fall in love. Eventually, Jerry poses (badly) as an English rider--but near the end of the film, the mob and Dean s new girlfriend learn of this and the two guys will be lucky to get out of this alive.

The film is pleasant but not funny. Compared to most of their films, it s a bit flat...but at least it s in nice color! Not terrible...just one of their better films.

I registered two days ago, the balance is already $7,500, so I’m thinking of asking for a withdrawal, or is it too early? In fact, I did nothing, somehow I have earned it automatically ...

I am in shock and my friends too! At first I thought that there was some kind of scam, it was not clear what and how it worked. But then the manager contacted me and explained everything in detail, it turned out to be very simple! I always worked hard and didn’t think that you could make money like that ..) In short, I bought a car. Good luck to everyone, I highly recommend this platform !!
