Newly re-mastered in HD! Comedy legend Jerry Lewis (Don t Give Up the Ship) stars as Kreton, the wackiest alien to ever visit planet earth. When Kreton s fascination with earthlings gets the better of him, he breaks one of his planet's laws and speeds off to visit the blue planet. Once there, Kreton encounters a nice family who kindly takes him in; the patriarch is a famous television journalist who prior to meeting Kreton had aired a piece in which he ridiculed all notions of extraterrestrials. Kreton wants to study humans, but does not fully understand them and ends up making a mess of things using his many fantastic powers which leads to a series of classic Lewis gags and routines. Norman Taurog (Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine) directs this comedy classic based on a Gore Vidal (The Left Handed Gun) play with stellar cinematography by Loyal Griggs (Shane). The stellar supporting cast includes Joan Blackman (Blue Hawaii), Earl Holliman (Sons of Katie Elder), Fred Clark (Daddy Long Legs), John Williams (Witness for the Prosecution), Jerome Cowan (Driftwood) and Gale Gordon (Here s Lucy). Oscar® Nominee for Best Art Direction.
