Throughout his long career, with a cocktail in one hand and a cigarette in the other, Dean Martin was the iconic epitome of the carefree, smooth operator. The Dean Martin Double Feature includes Who Was That Lady?, co-starring Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh and How to Save a Marriage (and Ruin Your Life), co-starring Stella Stevens.
In Who Was That Lady?
Martin stars opposite real-life husband and wife Tony Curtis (Some Like it Hot, Dont Make Waves) and Janet Leigh (Touch of Evil, Psycho). Curtis enlists the help of his friend Martin when his wife (Leigh) demands a divorce after catching him kissing one of his students. The guys cook up a cover story that Curtis is working undercover for the FBI, and that the kiss was part of a sting to catch a spy. The gullible Leigh buys the wild fabrication and later, unwittingly touches off a melee that is filmed by TV news crews. Some real Russian spies assume Curtis really is an FBI agent, and kidnap the trio, which kick starts a series of madcap plot twists. Directed by George Sidney, the film also stars Barbara Nichols, Larry Storch and Joi Lansing.
How to Save a Marriage (and Ruin Your Life)
Single, swinging lawyer David Sloane (Martin) tries to circumvent his friend Harry’s extramarital affair by romancing his secretary, Carol. However, David has seduced the wrong woman; Harry has actually been fooling around with Muriel. When David tells Harry that he's stolen his mistress, Harry isn't sure what's going on, but the message has the intended effect, and Harry patches things up with his wife Mary. But when Carol and Muriel compare notes, they decide that something is fishy, and the two draw up a series of demands Muriel insists that Harry leave Mary and marry her, while Carol wants David to make it legal with her. Directed by Fielder Cook, the film also stars Jack Albertson and Shelley Morrison (TVs Will & Grace).
