Editorial Reviews

Fasten your seatbelts! Adapted from the stage to the screen, the film follows the lives of American journalist Bernard Lawrence (Tony Curtis) and his friend and fellow journalist Robert Reed (Jerry Lewis) in Paris. Bernard, the ultimate bachelor, is juggling romances with three different stewardesses who just happen to have three different schedules and nationalities. Robert is scheming to take over for his buddy after Bernard's job relocates him to another country. The three luscious flight attendants are played by French Dany Saval, German Christiane Schmidtmer and British Suzanna Leigh. And "that old Brooklyn buzz saw, Thelma Ritter, steals the picture" (The New York Times) as their wisecracking housekeeper. Directed by television veteran, John Rich (All in the Family).

Format: DVD
Those who have eagerly awaited some of Jerry Lewis' post-Dean Martin classics being released on DVD and Blu-ray for the first time will have a special Valentine courtesy of Olive Films as 1958's "The Geisha Boy," 1958's "Rock-a-Bye Baby" and 1965's "Boeing Boeing" get a 2/14/12 release. It's hard to imagine that these films have not been made available on DVD prior to now! Of course, Lewis still remains a love it or loathe it proposition for many modern era film goers--but there is no denying his legacy and impact on the contemporary comedy scene. Oftentimes content to play the fool, Lewis displayed an innocent appeal on-screen that engaged a sense of silliness in us all. But he had genuine heart too, and his good-natured screen persona created some indelibly beloved characters that stand in contrast to his more complicated personal life. These films are an interesting cross section of Lewis' film catalogue as we see him doing what he does best but bringing additional elements of seriousness to the table. Made of a certain time and place, these films offer great nostalgia value for those that love Lewis--but also an opportunity for new viewers to discover Lewis in his prime.

"Boeing Boeing" is a real product of its time (despite its 2008 all-star Broadway revival). Originally penned as a French farce by Marc Camoletti, this play was first adapted for an English language audience in 1962. It must have seemed like a great idea to bring this broad comedy to the big screen, and its frantic energy is infectious and also a bit tiring. Tony Curtis is the actual lead who is juggling three live-in fiances. Seem impossible? Not when all three are stewardesses for rival international airlines whose schedules never intersect.

When the opening credits run, and the supporting female cast members `measurements' are shown beneath their names, you have no doubt you're in the 60's, bedroom farce, defined. In a roll reversal of sorts Jerry Lewis plays straight man to Tony Curtis this time around.
Bernie Lawrence (Curtis) is an American newspaper man stationed in Paris, the man for whom there is never too many airline hostesses, just too little time. His delicately balanced, and timed to the minute, 4-way love life comes totally unwound when old pal Robert Reed (Lewis) arrives for an unexpected stay.
Cliché after cliché, time stamped in most every shot, Boeing Boeing is a tribute to a different type of filmmaking than we see today, a different morality, a different approach to comedy.
Wonderful Paris sights are an added treat. Recommended.

I first watched this movie in Iran when I was no more than 6 years old! Since then, I have searched far and wide for this amazing and hilarious comedy only to find it here. This movie will have you rolling on the floor with clever slapstick and double entendres. It is a superb addition to any video library!

I consider this movie one of the Greatest Comedy in Cinema History! TCurtis, JLewis and the less known but great actress Thelma Ritter simply put a Roller-Coaster movie that keeps you glued and amused from start till the end. Not many other comedies can do the same. And Jerry Lewis part is not diminished at all by the others ones. (I'm a real Jerry Lewis fan, but I don't think that Tony Curtis and Thelma Ritter are nobody in Cinema History, simply look back.....) All 3 are Simply Great, the Movie is Simply unmissible and any Superlative Word available in the Vocabulary can freely be used!

I loved this movie growing up. I thought the three girlfriends were beautiful. I didn't really understand it all. In this day and age, I love the sex farces from the 60's. They are so innocent by today's standards but were probably thought to be smut back in the day. I am a huge Jerry Lewis fan also. So I found this movie to be pure light hearted fun.
