The Caddy Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P121802~Martin~deanmartin]] and [[Performer~P99633~Lewis~jerrylewis]] tee each other off on a PGA tour in The Caddy. Harvey Miller ([[Performer~P99633~Jerry Lewis~jerrylewis]]) is an expert with his golf club, except when he tries to play in front of a crowd -- then he completely loses control. With his mind set on getting into the PGA one way or another, he latches onto Joe Anthony ([[Performer~P121802~Dean Martin~deanmartin]]), a stylish gadabout. Harvey teaches Joe everything he knows about the game, and when Joe enters a tournament, Harvey does too -- as his caddy. But while the golf fans still make Harvey go wild, laid-back Joe feeds upon their applause. As Joe's game improves, his ego grows, and he begins to think Harvey is useless and wants to take the tour alone. The Caddy introduced the [[Performer~P121802~Dean Martin~deanmartin]] classic That's Amore to the world of kitsch and features a bevy of real life professional golfers in cameo roles -- including [[Performer~P66651~Sam Snead~samsnead]], [[Performer~P52164~Byron Nelson~byronnelson]], and [[Performer~P7482~Julius Boros~juliusboros]]. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi
