Product Description

An eccentric chemistry professor discovers an elixir which turns him into a pop idol.

From the Back Cover

Jerry Lewis is directed, co-wrote and starred in this riotously funny movie that set a new standard or screen comedy and inspired the hit remake.
Lewis plays a timid, nearsighted chemistry teacher who discovers a magical potion that can transform him into suave and handsome Romeo. The Jekyll and Hyde game works well enough until the concoction stars to wear off at the most embarrassing times, and the professor begins to suffer hilarious symptoms of his personality split. Co-starring Stella Stevens.

Lewis directed and co-wrote this entertaining version of Jeckyl and Hyde. The story still hadn't been explored at every level on the screen, and Lewis devised a good scenario from which to forge a comedy narrative about a nerd chemistry teacher who has no luck with women etc, suddenly being converted into a super cool, ultra confident alter ego who has no trouble with anything in life when he drinks a special potion he (as the nerd scientist) developed. It is slapstick mingled with sentiment, and delivered in Lewis' goofiest, daffiest style. It should be pretty appalling then, and does actually veer quite close to be being so on occasion, but the vibrance of Lewis' energetic performance, the brilliance of the contrast between his two polar alter egos, and the sultry Stella Stevens as his muse make this an enjoyable experience. It isn't subtle and of course ends in a moralising tone, but if you want a pretty basic sort of laugh at some great physical humour and funny visuals then this could fit the bill. People do get sniffy about such obviously physical film comedians as Jerry Lewis and Norman Wisdom but take a look at a couple of scenes here for visual mastery and simple fun. This has to be Lewis at his best, whether you like his idiotic style or not, and this movie can even be seen as an 'I don't need Dean Martin' injoke, as he does seem to take on an uncanny resemblance to the glass holding crooner in his alter ego as Buddy Love. Has some great goofy lines in it as well such as 'Carbon Dioxide (voice changes to that of Buddy Love) has always been a gas.' Memorable film, a great twist on the story and very entertaining. DVD has some good extras too.

THE NUTTY PROFESSOR is about an eccentric professor who discovers a liquid concoction which can transform him into a suave character in the style and manner of Dean Martin. For a Jerry Lewis film the antics are somewhat tame. Lewis plays the professor and Stella Stevens is his adoring student. The supporting cast includes Del Moore, Kathleen Freeman and Howard Morris.
The movie is saved by the acting and outstanding good looks of Miss Stevens. The Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde theme makes a decent story and the film also benefits from Jerry Lewis behaving as if he is almost under control.

1963’s comedy The Nutty Professor knocks its recent remake for six with a ‘career best’ performance from the world’s top box-office screen comic of the 1950s and 1960s, Jerry Lewis.
Lewis plays a nerdy chemistry professor who accidentally concocts a potion which magically transforms him into a smooth talking ladies man (Buddy Love) who starts to romance a beautiful student, played by Stella Stevens. The dual life of goofy accident-prone professor by day and smooth handsome lothario by night works a treat until the concoction begins to wear off at the most embarrassing times.
Lewis side-splitting portrayal of both timid professor and suave Ladies-man make this movie a must see for all the family.

Things come to a hilarious head when Lewis’s Principle invites Buddy Love to perform at the school prom and then also orders the Professor to officiate at the event.

Format: Blu-ray
Professor Julius F Kelp(Jerry Lewis) teaches chemistry at college, he's prone to, lets say, accidents.
He's shy, lacks confidence and is often at the wrong end of ridicule, the more 'butch' students even
bully him from time to time, only 'Stella' (Stella Stevens) appears respectful toward him.
Of course a girl like that wouldn't give this bumbling excuse for a man a second look in romantic terms.
He grows weary of his predicament and has for some time been working on a formula to improve his
persona, he feels the time is right to give his formula a go.
The formula gives him a completely new image, he becomes confident suave and super-cool, somewhat
over the top and irritating in truth, at the local dance hall he takes over the music group performing and
at the piano starts singing, well, he wows the audience.
Getting the dosage level right becomes a problem, he'd singled out 'Stella' as a romantic target, on their
sort of first date the formula begins to wear off, his voice begins to change back, he has to escape.
How is he going to explain that to 'Stella' when he again becomes 'Buddy Love' next time.
The length of effectiveness increasingly means whilst performing or trying to be romantic and he begins
to revert to 'Julius' he has to disappear from his public, however in class 'Stella; is beginning to put 2 and
2 together, does he need to be 'Buddy' for people, more importantly 'Stella' to like and respect him ?
There are many laugh out loud moments throughout the film, Jerry Lewis's comic genius blossoms in
this movie.
