Martin and Lewis team up again, but in a venture that's less slapstick than usual. Martin is cast as a vaudevillian accordion player who asks the sheepish Lewis to join him on stage. The duo rises to fame on the strength of Lewis' antics, but Martin soon decides to go it alone, failing

miserably in his attempt. It takes his newlywed wife, Bergen, and money-minded agent Mayehoff to convince Martin that without Lewis he has no act. Moderately amusing, and more than a little autobiographical. Martin's songs include: "A Girl Named Mary and a Boy Named Bill" (Mack David, Jerry

Livingston, sung by Martin and Bergen), "Who's Your Little Whozis?" (Al Goering, Ben Bernie, Walter Hirsch), "Just One More Chance" (Arthur Johnston, Sam Coslow), "With My Eyes Wide Open I'm Dreaming" (Mack Gordon, Harry Revel), "Louise" (Leo Robin, Richard A. Whiting), "I'm Yours" (E.Y. Harburg,

Johnny Green).
