Audience Reviews for Ten Thousand Bedrooms

Dean Martin does OK in a role cut for Cary Grant.

Dino plays a suave, swank and sober hotel magnate visiting his newest acquisition in Rome. After they have a quick drink and even quicker flight over the city in his private DC-9, Martin decides to acquire a very young Anna Maria Alberghetti as his bride. And she readily agrees.

But Alberghetti's dad thinks it proper for her older sisters to be married off first. Which gives dapper Dino something to get done during the remaining 90 minutes of film.

This non-comedic role looks like a mid-Century suit that would better fit Cary Grant or Rock Hudson, but Dino actually does well with it. Alberghetti's fairly luscious, but hardly star quality. The beauty of Rome appears throughout in a supporting role.

Not a funny film in the least, but still a nice example of mid-Century film nostalgia, quite pleasant TCM viewing on a crisp October afternoon.

RECOMMENDATION: Not so special as to require the viewer to go out of the way to see or acquire it.
