"Living It Up"

Living It Up Wally Cook (Janet Leigh), a reporter for the New York Chronicle, convinces her editor to let her do a series of articles on Homer Flagg (Jerry), a young man from New Mexico who is dying as a result of radioactive poisoning. Before she arrives out west, Homer learns from his doctor (Dean) that the diagnosis was a mistake and he's perfectly healthy. That doesn't stop them from accepting Wally's offer of an all- expenses paid trip to New York. Everyone in New York takes pity on Homer, but as the bills go higher and higher, the editor of the paper wants to know when this final fling is going to end. One of the best and funniest Martin and Lewis projects, with the great talent of Janet Leigh, and a fantastic musical score.
