This 10-DVD boxed set is a delight for anyone afflicted with a susceptibility to the fractured antics of Jerry Lewis, or "Le Roi du Crazy" to the French. This set emphasizes Lewis's busy period after the breakup with Dean Martin, when he was exerting more influence over his vehicles (six of the titles are directed by Jerry himself) and almost single-handedly keeping Paramount Pictures propped up with his box-office take. The set curiously includes one of the Martin-Lewis pictures, 1953's The Stooge, which has echoes of the real-life vibe between Jerry and Dino.

The other titles include Lewis's 1957 solo starring debut, The Delicate Delinquent, and his directing bow, The Bellboy (1960). The latter is an often-ingenious and plotless collection of gags with Jerry as a bellhop in Miami Beach's Fountainebleau Hotel. His character doesn't speak (making the connection with silent cinema more pointed), but in one uproarious sequence the obnoxious movie star "Jerry Lewis" comes to visit the hotel.

The Ladies Man puts Lewis alone in a boarding house full of women. This film's bizarre sexual politics (and its amazing cut-away set) helps explain why French critics such as Jean-Luc Godard consider Lewis a cinematic genius--Godard actually borrowed the cut-away set idea for his film Tout va bien. The Errand Boy is a cascade of gags strung together on the set of "Paramutual Pictures," a movie studio that employs Lewis's klutzy gofer; it features one of Jerry's best musical miming routines. The Patsy is another good one, as nebbish Jerry is drafted into impersonating a famous deceased celebrity, but by 1965's The Family Jewels the inspiration is flagging a bit.

Two of the titles are directed by Lewis's mentor, Frank Tashlin. Cinderfella works a sentimental variation on the fairy tale; it's slow and at times mawkish, but some of Lewis's physical stuff is top-notch. The Disorderly Orderly is livelier, with a hospital setting and some of Jerry's most inspired babbling. The box also includes Lewis's acknowledged high point, The Nutty Professor, in its special-edition form. Its Jekyll-and-Hyde story is still the funniest and weirdest premise Lewis ever had. There are other Lewis films out there, but this box is definitely the cream of the career. If some of the jokes haven't aged well (and those who can't stand his mugging won't be convinced even by this set), Lewis still seems a more interesting filmmaker than he's usually given credit for. Extras include some disappointing commentaries with Lewis and Steve Lawrence, plus a smattering of outtakes, some of them funny and/or revealing of Lewis's directing technique. --Robert Horton

I love his old movies.

It's a complete collection of the best of comediant Jerry Lewis, it's great to remember those movies that convert him in one of a kind.

Format: DVD
The author of a recent book in appreciation of Lewis' film work, Enfant Terrible! notes that he's been honored primarily not in the US but in France, by "those incomprehensible hedonistic strangers across the sea." This set affords an opportunity to reappraise his standing in the cinema, and I find myself falling in with the hedonistic strangers in appreciation of his considerable talents.

I can remember as a kid laughing my head off in the theater watching Who's Minding the Store? (not included in this set), but it wasn't until I saw Martin and Lewis on the Colgate Comedy Hour shows on DVD that I had any idea of his range and versatility. Then I saw the first Dean and Jerry movie, My Friend Irma, a film based on a radio show, and thoroughly forgettable but for one thing: the Martin/ Lewis interplay. Paramount long ago saw what I'm just finding out, and the duo made sixteen movies together.

Only their last film in that series is included in this set, The Stooge, from 1953, in which, as Leonard Maltin has noted, Lewis shows hidden depths as an actor. His first solo outing, The Delicate Delinquent (1957) is surprisingly poignant, with only intermittent comic bits. This unimaginably rich set of ten films from 1953 to 1965 may not convert staid critics on this side of the Atlantic, but it certainly will prove the Lewis lover's cup of tea. The films are on ten single sided DVDs in five slimline cases which fit in a box set. The slim cases are too thin to comfortably hold two discs, however, and plastic pieces had broken off in all the cases I opened. The DVDs were still OK though (single sided discs are tougher than double sided ones), and except for that problem this is an attractively packaged set.

I'm thrilled that Paramount has boxed up their 10 Jerry Lewis titles and cut the price. The titles include The Bellboy, Cinderfella, The Delicate Delinquent, The Disorderly Orderly, The Errand Boy, The Family Jewels, The Ladies Man, The Nutty Professor, The Patsy and The Stooge.

I've been entertianed by most of these films - having checked out the single releases - but was unwilling to buy them for $15 a pop. But now the price is right and I will be able to torture my children with Jerry on the loose.

While the bonus features on most aren't overwhelming, they seem enlightening to understand what Jerry was doing at the time. He was an innovator using video monitors to help direct himself.

I do hope Paramount is able to put out a good low priced boxset of the Jerry Lewis - Dean Martin comedies.

Format: DVD
These ten classic motion pictures were issued (or re-issued in the case of "The Nutty Professor") individually on DVD in 2004 and one year later arrived in this collectible box set. The films are gems with several standouts:

The Stooge (1953)--This is the only pairing in this compilation with Dean Martin and may have been selected because Mr. Lewis says it is his favorite of the sixteen films he made with Dean.

The Delicate Delinquent (1957)--His first film without Dean Martin has more of a dramatic tinge and can still be relatable almost fifty years later for his societal themes which--for the most part--have stayed with us.

The Bellboy (1960)--Jerry's directorial debut is this zany, intriguing film about a madcap Bellboy who refrains from speaking because he "has never been asked". One of the best scenes in this film is Jerry playing himself and proving that stardom isn't all it is cracked up to be.

The Ladies Man (1961)--Every man in the world who has ever been dumped can relate to this witty and wonderful saga about Herbert H. Heebert as he attempts to live without love in a house full of girls.

The Errand Boy (1961)--Wonder why the French love Jerry Lewis? Watch the puppet segments of this film and you'll understand--you'll love him, too.

The Nuttty Professor (1963)--This film can still scare children today (when Professor Kelp transforms into Buddy Love for the first time). It can also delight with tons of humor.

The Disorderly Orderly (1964)--A medical film with humor and heart and what may prove to be the best romantic storyline to be discovered in a Jerry Lewis classic.

This set is a sampling of the immense talent of Jerry Lewis. Okay, it's far from the complete Jerry Lewis. I also wanted Who's Minding the Store, The Geisha Boy, and Visit to a Small Planet. But you can't have everything. I do like the clear picture and sound on these films. What a fun trip down memory lane.

The Nutty Professor has been called his best. I really like it. Just great stuff, smooth and funny and colorful. (But I hate the Buddy Love character. Too over the top. He's a jerk, we get it. We don't need a brick to fall on our heads.)

The Ladies Man is a lot of fun at Miss Welonmelon's boarding house, with some great bits: the butterflies, feeding Baby, fixing the gangster's hat, wiping Welonmelon's portait (that always makes me laugh out loud), and the microphone problem while broadcasting 'Up Your Street'. There's a rather sudden ending, but this is one of the best in Jerry's career. Amazing set, too.

The Bellboy is my favorite film of Jerry's, and it's extremely rewatchable because it has a lot going on, one thing after another. The lunch counter gag kills me. And you can't beat Jerry tampering with a clay bust that's still wet. Very good overall. And his character has virtually no dialogue. The amazing thing about The Bellboy is that they shot most of it at a ritzy hotel in Florida while it was doing its day to day business.

The Errand Boy is a fairly good comedy, a typical vehicle for Jerry Lewis. I enjoy it. Another bunch of fun vignettes.

The Disorderly Orderly is part slapstick and part depressing psychological study. Some wonderful comic bits cannot overcome the serious feel that the movie plays with in the pretty blonde patient who is totally bitter, resentful to everyone, and very troubled.

Lewis's best isn't on DVD?
I have to agree. This is the best movie of Jerry's. I'd love for it to be released on DVD. My 8 year old twins almost have it memorized. I love sharing this movie with them, because of my fond memories watching it (late night movie re-runs) and the fact that it is good clean humor.

Visit to a Small Planet and Who's Minding the Store
I have no idea but I wish someone would. I have seen a downloadable file of possibly dubious origin and a dubbed German version, but no purchaseable dvd anywhere. I also have the original script for the play by Gore Vidal (1956) from Amazon... very interesting

Jerry Lewis movie
It's Only Money (1962) - Unfortunately never released on DVD (or VHS for that matter). It played a lot on pay movie channels like Cinemax and Showtime in the late 80's and early '90s so someone out there has to have a copy.

I think the film your thinking of is 'The Bellboy' when he conducts an invisible orchestra!
