Get set to laugh it up when the silver screen's most popular comedy duo leave a small town and head to the big city hoping to experience the high life in this Martin and Lewis fan favourite. The fun begins when hapless Homer Flagg (Lewis) learns from his physician, Dr. Harris (Martin) that he's dying from radiation poisoning. When a New York newspaper reporter (Janet Leigh) hears of Homer's plight, she decides to do a series of articles on the unfortunate New Mexico man. Before she heads west, hoever, Harris informs Homer that the diagnosis is a mistake. But that doesn't stop them from accepting the reporter's offer for a swanky trip to Manhattan, where the two attempt to keep up the pretence in this side-splitting comedy of errors.
