Classic Film Friday: Ten Thousand Bedrooms

So I was home watching my little one, and this movie came on TMC. It was Dean's birthday, so they were playing all his movies. And Ten Thousand Bedrooms was his first without Jerry Lewis. It was also a bomb at the box office.

I don't know why. But it was slightly before my time. Ray Hunter (Dean Martin) is a hotel magnate and he has just purchased a hotel in Italy. Upon his arrival in Italy he meets a girl Maria Martelli (Eva Bartok), and then meets her sister Nina Martelli (Anna Maria Alberghetti), and he is in love. With which one? Well you will have to watch and see. It is "Hollywood" crazy, all the stuff they must go through.

Now this is one dean martin movie I wasn;t acquainted with...and with Anna Maria can it be a BAD movie (she hawked spaghetti sauce in commericals I think?), and she was a heart-throb of many a teenage boy in my day.

I'll have to check this movie out.

Thanks for the recommendation.
And have a great Father's Day.
