Kiss Me, Stupid

Synopsis: Dino, the charming and lecherous Las Vegas singer, stops for gas on his way to Hollywood in Climax, Nevada. The oily gas station attendant is Barney Millsap, a would-be lyricist who writes pop songs with Orville Spooner, the local piano teacher. By disabling Dino's car, Barney contrives a scheme to have Dino sing one of their songs on an upcoming TV special. To entertain Dino, Barney contacts the village tart, Polly, employing her to pretend to be Orville's wife, Zelda, for a night. She doesn't like Dino, but does love being Orville's surrogate wife. Dino goes to a bar, where he meets the real Zelda, and they spend the night together while Polly spends it with Orville.

'S wonderful

'S marvelous

You should care

For me

'S awful nice

'S paradise

'S what I love

To see

You make

My life so glamorous

You can't blame me

for feeling amorous

Now, is this

a bit of terrific, hmm?

Last night, she was banging

on my door for 45 minutes...

but I wouldn't let her out.

'S wonderful

'S marvelous

That you should care for me

Don't worry. I'll get the mail.

I'll get it.

Uh-oh. Speaking of my mo...

I have an amazing mother.

You know, she's 85 years old,

and she don't need glasses.

She drinks

right out of the bottle.

She don't even

open them anymore.

She goes

right through the label.

Oh, and drinking?

My doctor said,

"Stop drinking"...

so I'm not gonna drink anymore.

I'm gonna freeze it now

and eat it like a Popsicle.

'S wonderful

'S marvelous

You should care

For me

2, 3, 4.

'S awful nice

'S paradise

'S what I love

To see

I guess you all know

this is my last night here.

Tomorrow morning

I'm going to Hollywood...

and make a new picture...

me, Frank Sinatra,

Sammy Davis Jr...

and Joey Bishop...

called "Little Women."

But before that,

I'm gonna do a TV special...

with Mr. Bing Crosby.

Now, why Bing works so hard,

I'll never know.

He's got $21 million...

on him.

My dear

It's four-leaf clover time

From now on,

my heart's working overtime

I don't care

who you are, fat man.

You get them reindeers

off my roof.

'S wonderful

'S marvelous

That you should care

For me

Good night! Good night!

See you next year!

Great, Dino. Only great.

They were rolling in the aisles.

Why didn't somebody

take their dice away?

Dino.

Hmm?

Am I going to see you

before you leave?

Just one last nightcap?

You got it.

I'll be in my room.

Keep your hat on.

What's her name? Mitzi?

No, no. Sylvia.

Sylvia.

This one is Mitzi.

Dino.

Hmm?

Are we going to

get together tonight?

Just one for the road, huh?

It's a must.

My room later, OK?

This is beginning to look

like Custer's last stand.

Like what?

Because it isn't

just Sylvia and Mitzi.

There are all those

other Indians.

You've got Janet

in the dressing room...

Juicy Lucy up in your suite...

and those German twins...

waiting for you

in the steam room.

That's the whole idea.

Now that I got everybody

stashed away, I can beat it.

So you pack my stuff

and put it in the car.

You're going to leave

just like that,

without saying good-bye?

Damn right, because

if I start saying good-bye...

to all these dames,

you'll have to carry me

out of here...

what's left of me...

in a cigar box...

baby.

What's the matter?

That Sinatra kid missing again?

We had a bad pileup

down the highway.

You'll have to take the detour.

Where does that lead to?

You come out at Barstow,

by way of Warm Springs...

Paradise Valley, and Climax.

That's the only way to go.

Fill 'er up?

Yeah. No, no. Over here.

Anything else?

No, thanks.

Hey! You forgot

your green stamps!

Hi, Barney!

Deedle, deedle, deedle

Deedle, deedle, deedle

Deedle, deedle, d...

No, no, Mulligan.

You've got an extra

deedle in there.

It's six deedles, not seven.

Let's not monkey around

with Beethoven, shall we?

Once more.

Orville.

Yes, dear?

What's the matter?

Please, dear, not now.

Mulligan, not only

do you have a tin ear...

you have lead fingers.

Whoever told you

to take up the piano?

You did, sir.

Well, I need the money,

but what's your excuse?

It says here

molto espressione...

which means with much

expression...

with feeling, with heart.

From the top again.

A-natural!

A-natural!

Just a minute, you.

Oh, hi there, Mr. Spooner.
