I read many books about the solo careers of Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis.
In this One,Author Marx give an interesting look about the life and time of the legendary comedy-duo "MARTIN & LEWIS"! I'll think this book is one of the better biography about this comedy-team!

Barely Three Stars' Worth 20 April 2013
By James M. Boubonis - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Of the several books available on the comedic careers of Martin and Lewis, this one, written by Groucho Marx's son Arthur, attempts to be the most objective. The biographical information on both men is available in better detail in other books - and Marx is too critical of Lewis. The most objectionable point I read in this book is when Marx dismisses Lewis' several movies in the late 1960s with one sweepingly denigrating phrase. Lewis may be controversial both on- and off-screen, but as a lifelong student and aficionado of film comedy, I insist that Lewis' best work are his directorial efforts in the late 60s, especially The Family Jewels and The Patsy. I respect the opinion of anyone who disagrees, as these are subjective matters of taste.
Also, Marx gives no credit whatsoever to the innovations Lewis brought to filmmaking (which have been praised by Lewis' former UC film class students Steven Spielberg and George Lucas), such as instant videotape replay of a take, or his revolutionary set design in The Ladies' Man.

Arthur Marx had more facts straight than did Nich Toshes 23 Oct. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have this book and the reading is good. Actually this book seems to be most of the research for Nick Toshes book. Minus the mob and language. Although you get the feeling that Arthur Marx really knew and liked the subjects he's writting about. Would recommend it to be included in any collectors library.
Wonderful look at Martin and Lewis 10 Jan. 2015

Wonderful look at Martin and Lewis.Not necessarily the nicest but a great insight into the last great comedy duo. I really do recommend this book highly.

New facts emerge from this book 29 Sept. 2011
By M. Smith - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I thought I knew most of the background stories of Jerry and Dean. But this book dishes the facts I never knew. Not a synchophantic biography, but not unfair.
Groucho's son knows a bit about comedic talent, and he's done a fine job.
