For my meager money, Jerry Lewis' best & one of funniest all-time comedies.
Jerry at his rawest and most creative.
In spite of all the French jokes, Jerry Lewis' directorial debut, The Bellboy (1960), is nothing less than a masterpiece.
The Bellboy is nearly silent, in what could easily be taken as a nod toward French comedy titan Jacques Tati.
One of Lewis' more successful outings.
A successful debut of Jerry behind the cameras and still making great scenes with slapstick and physical comedy.
Jerry Lewis steps behind the camera, as well as in front, to construct a successful slapstick comedy known as The Bellboy.
As stated in the beginning of the movie, there is no plot. In fact, the closest thing to a story is the hotel and bellboy concept that ties everything together. As a whole, this picture is a series of comedic scenes that span a brief run time of 70+ minutes.
Despite some misses, most of the humor is on the money and will generate laughs. Lewis' gags are straightforward and simple, which ends up generating an amusing experience. Having no plot makes it easier to concentrate on the comedy.
Lewis not only writes, directs, and produces this film, but stars in it as well. He tackles both a side and lead role. His side character is himself and he does speak, but the main individual doesn't have much to say. He relies on facial expressions, body movements, and a catchy whistling tune to shine from scene to scene. Bill Richmond also comes through with a fun side character.
The Bellboy brings the entertainment to the bellboy occupation. Relax and watch the bellboy get into mischief.
