Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin, Sailor Beware
I can assure you of certain things in life and this is one of them – there is NOT a bigger fan Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin movies on the planet than me. It is what it is and that’s how it is. I’d go so far as to say I’m the biggest fan of each actor as well, but given that each has family they have left behind, I’ll hold off on that claim.
See how reasonable I can be after my third cup of coffee?
My completely truthful answer to the question I’m often asked (“What’s your favorite Lewis and Martin film?“) is this: Whichever one I’m watching at the time or the one I saw last. That’s why the answer is often a different one.
Today it’s Sailor Beware (1952).
The fun movie stars Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin, French actress Corinne Calvet, and the always wonderful Marion Marshall. Marshall co-starred in three of the dynamic duo’s “Paramount movies:” “That’s My Boy” (1951), “The Stooge” (1951) and, finally, “Sailor Beware” (1952).

You can find a great selection of Lewis & Martin dvd collections on Amazon (some of the best are linked below). Some of their individual movies (they made 16 together… naturally I nickname them the Sweet Sixteen because why wouldn’t I?) can be really tough to find. Fortunately the collections are very reasonably priced.
