"Salt & Pepper and its sequel One More Time are NOT great cinema. Its Peter Lawford & Sammy Davis Jr trying to do a mini ratpacker weekend twofer...Its great nonsense and fluff. However its a guilty pleasure for those who want an easier, tongue in cheek movie. So know this going in!
Note these films showcase Davis's talents of song, slapstick, gun & sword play, and mimicing others (like gangster George Raft, etc). Lawford plays straight man for shining Davis as he was for Martin & Sinatra in the Rat pack movies. Lawford has the brooding stare that you think is a dramatic moment... believe me, it passes quickly. Also note that even as bad as the passable see-thru scripts are, these films are well directed by two of the best-- Superman and Lethal Weapon's Richard Donner (Salt and Pepper) and Jerry Lewis (yes, the Nutty Proffessor himself directed One More Time)
This double feature DVD will remind many of the Rat Pack movies (Sergeants three, Ocean's 11,Robin & the Seven Hoods) but it isn't...Know this before you buy. It is not great cinema, it a throwback to the end of an era (the 1960s). So put your mind on hold and just stay for the Davis antics and slapstick..to watch this man's great talent is worth a THREE STARS in any book
