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

In Jumping Jacks, Hap Smith (Jerry Lewis), nightclub entertainer, has a new act since his former partner Chick Allen (Dean Martin) joined the army: with lovely new partner Betsy Carter (Mona Freeman), Hap plays a clownish parody of a soldier. Meanwhile, Chick is organizing a soldier show at Fort Benning and finds he needs his old partner’s help. To get onto the base, Hap impersonates a hapless real soldier, Dogface Dolan (Richard Erdman); but circumstances force them to prolong the masquerade, creating an increasingly tangled Army-sized snafu.

My Friend Irma (1949) starring Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, Marie Wilson, Diana Lynn

 My Friend Irma  was originally a long-running radio series, that became a pair of successful movies, the sequel being  My Friend Irma Goes West.   In this first film, the comedy team of Martin & Lewis were included as comedy relief.   However, much like Abbott and Costello‘s first movie role in One Night in the Tropics, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis‘ roles were gradually expanded – not quite stealing the show, but coming close.
