When the caddy in question is Jerry Lewis, what kind of level of success do you think it is for the golfer, Joe Anthony (Dean Martin)? Actually, Lewis’s character, Harvey Miller, was actually a very good golfer, but his fear of crowds prevented him from competing. As a Golf Pro, Anthony becomes his client, and a natural on the course, so much so that he can play professionally, though the bungling nature of the two leads them to form a comedy routine as opposed to a winning golf team. Hey, Dean Martin performs “That’s Amore”, and that is enough for us to put it on the ballot, regardless of how farcical the plot is.
The Bullet Points:
The Caddy (1953)
Why You Should Vote For Him:
Dean Martin is the king of cool.
Why You Should Not Vote For Him:
Wait, he washed out as a golfer to become an entertainer? What kind of athlete is that?
