Angnes Moorehead (Bewitched), Ray Walston (My Favorite Martian), and many others.
Jerry is a poor boob named Norman. Now Norman is a really nice guy, honest, hard working, and would do anything for anyone. Especially
for his girl. But like all Jerry Lewis characters he`s a disaster looking for a place to happen. His girl (Jill St. John) is the
heir to a big chain of department stores, but she doesn`t want Norman to know this. She wants to make sure he loves her for
herself, not because she`s rich. Her parents are Moorehead and her hopelessly henpecked husband McGiver. Moorehead`s character
is the ruthless driving force behind the Tuttle Empire and wants to prove to her daughter just what a boob Jerry really is.
So she orders the store manager (Ray Walston) to hire the boy and give him every dirty impossible job he can think of. The result
is disaster after disaster and laugh after laugh.
Walston makes a surprisingly good (not too mean) villian for the film, and all too often has his dirty tricks backfire on him.
Lewis is at top form in the film and turns in one of his best comedy performances.
classics are now out on DVD, why not this one??!!?? To the
"powers that be," PLEASE release this movie on DVD-A.S.A.P!!
My DVD library of Jerry Lewis masterpieces is in need of it!
Lewis is backed up by a good cast, such as Moorehead, Walston, St. John, and John McGivers as the down-trodden "figurehead" Mr. Tuttle, who finally learns to stand up to his wife.
Again, Tashlin knew how to best utilize his star in some of the wackiest moments. Who can forget Lewis trying to paint a flag pole, make a golf simulator go haywire, grapple with a "lady gorilla" of a customer in the shoe section, jog in a publicity-generated endurance test, and work in the sporting section with big-game equipment? But the topper has to be the climactic gag with Lewis trying to wrangle a vacuum cleaner gone berserk. This is a deliriously outrageous sight-gag marathon as half the store gets inhaled by this thing.
Another stellar Lewis-Tashlin collaboration, and another keeper for Lewis fans!
