It's hard to see why Hal Wallis and Paramount held this film for two
years before releasing it. Maybe they wanted a few more straight out
comedy hits for Martin and Lewis before giving this one to the public.
The story has a somewhat true background based on writer Sid Silvers's
experience as just such a stooge for singer/vaudevillian Phil Baker.
They however didn't stay a team for any length of time in the way
Martin and Lewis did.
Martin has a singing/accordion act that is going nowhere until he hires
a stooge with whom he can do shtick with from the audience. Of course
The Stooge is Jerry Lewis.
The Stooge was an uncomfortable film for both of these guys. It exposes
the cracks in their own relationship. What's ironic here is that
because of television in the sixties, everyone knows just how funny
Dean Martin could be on his own.
Dino's given a whole bunch of film standards to sing in this, mostly
owned by Paramount. He recorded all of them and they wound up on his
first long playing album from Capitol records along with That's Amore.
I still have that album.
There's one new song written for the film, A Girl Named Mary and A Boy
Named Bill. Dino sings it solo and with leading lady Polly Bergen. Of
course they play Bill and Mary in the film. On the Capitol recording
Dean ends it in a falsetto that puts him poaching in Frankie Valli
territory. It's one of my favorites of his film songs.
Fans will no doubt recognize Frances Bavier, Aunt Bee herself, as
Jerry's mom. And Jerry has some great moments with nervous Percy Helton
and with slow burn short order cook Donald MacBride.
Hal Wallis was nervous for nothing. The Stooge is one of the best team
efforts for Martin and Lewis.
