Marriage on the Rocks (1965), starring Frank Sinatra, Deborah Kerr, Dean Martin

Product Description of Marriage on the Rocks

 What do you do when you have a beautiful house, two great children, and a Marriage on the Rocks? If you’re bored Val Edwards (Deborah Kerr), you swap your fuddy-duddy hubby Dan (Frank Sinatra) for his swingin’ bachelor best friend Ernie (Dean Martin). Watch the sparks fly! Ol’ Blue Eyes breezes through this romantic comedy romp at the head of an all-star cast. Along for the laughs are frequent Sinatra co-stars Martin, Cesar Romero, and Tony Bill, plus daughter Nancy Sinatra and Kerr. The fun starts when the Edwards take a second honeymoon in Mexico. Once there, they fall into the hands of the quickie-divorce/quickie-marriage lawyer Romero. Faster then jumping beans, everybody’s unhitched, rehitched, confused, confounded, and cohabitating. But Dan has the right attitude. “We had a bad marriage”, he says. “Let’s have a happy divorce!”

That’s Amore lyrics

That’s Amore lyrics, as sung by Dean Martin in The Caddy

In Napoli where love is king
When boy meets girl here’s what they say …
When a moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie
That’s amore
When the world seems to shine like you’ve had too much wine
That’s amore
Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
And you’ll sing “Vita bella”
Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
Like a gay tarantellaRead More »That’s Amore lyrics
