Living It Up (1954) | My Favorite Old Movies
A poor man (Jerry Lewis) is wrongly diagnosed with radiation poisoning by his doctor/friend (Dean Martin), a female reporter (Janet Leigh) takes
them to New York City to live out the last of the man’s days in luxury!
I adore Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis’ films. I was raised on them! I have memories of watching Martin and Lewis films on Sunday afternoons with my dad – it was one of the few father/daughter bonding activities which we enjoyed. I loved Dean Martin’s suave, debonair characters and Jerry Lewis’ wild
and wacky characters. Both always made me laugh in whatever movie they did together. Whenever I am in need of a laugh, I pop on Living It Up and am instantly cheered up!
I love the premise of this film and that Martin had some chances for his own comedic performance in this film – something which rarely happened when in a scene with Lewis.
I love the bright costumes designed in this movie which make it visually exciting. Janet Leigh is absolutely breathtaking in every costume she wears, and her chemistry with both Martin and Lewis (her character vows to marry Lewis’ character but is actually in love with Martin’s character!).
Jerry Lewis got to show off his amazing dancing skills during one scene where he does the Jitterbug with a champion dancer. I love that because he is crazy and wild usually, this dance fits him to a T!
The highlight of Living It Up for me is the musical number Every Street’s A Boulevard, where Martin and Lewis gets dressed up in coats and ties and stroll through the spectacle which is New York City:
Classic comedy which will I will watch forever!
