Behind-the-scenes on the set of KISS ME, STUPID (1964), Billy Wilder works with Ray Walston at the piano while Dean Martin and Kim Novak appear to be going through their lines in the background. Much of the action of this comedy takes place on this set. Orville Spooner (Walston) attempts to sell a song to the famous nightclub entertainer Dino (Martin). Peter Sellers started in the role of Orville but had a heart attack and was replaced.
