Between 1957 and 1965 Jerry made 2 films per year for Paramount Pictures. All did well at the box-office, some, notably "The Bell Boy" and "The Nutty Professor" which Lewis wrote and directed himself, have since been regarded as 'classics'. This title, directed by Frank Tashlin, sees our hero let loose in a department store, causing havoc on every floor. The impressive supporting cast includes the delectable Jill St. John,suitably caustic Agnes Moorehead, harassed Ray Walston and ineffectual John McGiver.A slight plot maybe but plenty of brilliantly staged sight-gags performed with obvious relish and gusto by Mr. Lewis.A crisp fast moving comedy for all the family marred by the print quality, images are not 'pin-sharp' with some wear marks visible.In fact, not a great deal better than my VHS tape recorded off-the-air some 32 years ago!The disc, only presently available in NTSC format does not contain any extras.A disappointment for us Lewis nuts who have long-been waiting for a DVD release of this film.
I recently purchased this movie on dvd, it's one of my absolute favourites, it's hilarious, from start to finish, the plot, the supporting cast, and special effects are worthy the the star performer Jerry Lewis. All Lewis fans should own this masterpiece.
