Reason of the public domain status: Registered in the year was made but never renewed.
The first starring vehicle for Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, At War With The Army features Martin as the smooth, confident ladies man and Lewis as the bumbling, inept dolt who wreaks havoc everywhere he goes. As Martin bursts into song, Lewis struggles to understand the workings of a Coke machine, successfully creating a character pattern for future Lewis & Martin movies.
Though At War With the Army was the third film appearance of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, it was the team’s first starring vehicle. A pattern is set herein for all the Martin-Lewis flicks to follow: Martin plays a self-assured romeo, forever bursting into song, while Lewis is a hopeless screw-up unable to perform the simplest task without wreaking havoc (in this one, he can’t even operate a Coke machine properly). Mike Kellin repeats his Broadway role as M&L’s tough topkick while Polly Bergen makes a very brief appearance. Because it has lapsed into public domain, At War with the Army is one of the most available of the Martin and Lewis films.
