Hollywood or Bust

Time Out says

Last (and one of the best) of the Martin and Lewis comedies, in which Lewis is a mentally retarded movie freak enamoured with La Ekberg, and Martin a gambler on a losing streak. They team up and drive a Cadillac convertible, which they have both won as a prize, to Hollywood. For protection, Lewis takes along his Great Dane. A particular favourite of Truffaut, who pointed out that the title refers to financial insolvency as much as to Ekberg's chest, its gags have real momentum, and the parody of War and Peace, which Paramount were making at the time with Ekberg, is delightful.
