Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Lawyer Dean Martin's gambling habit is beginning to get on the nerves of his wife Lana Turner. To keep the money in the family, Lana talks Dino's law partner Eddie Albert into acting as Martin's bookie. Not only does this plan not work, but it also rouses the ire of Runyonesque gangster Walter Matthau. In the cutest of the film's cute twist, Lana saves herself and her husband by solving Matthau's financial and domestic problems. A minor but efficiently assembled star comedy, Who's Got the Action benefits from tasty production values and a knockout supporting cast, including Paul Ford, John McGiver, Nita Talbot, Ned Glass, and fabled pin-up girl June Wilkinson.
