OVERVIEW

Brief Synopsis

Jerry Lewis, Jill St. John, John McGiver, Agnes Moorehead, Ray Walston, Nancy Culp, Richard Deacon, Francesca Bellini, Milton Frome, Kathleen Freeman. Dunderhead Lewis falls in love with dishy St. John, but her mean-but-rich ol? ma (Moorehead) doesn?t like him one bit. So what does the old biddy do? She gives him a job, of course, at her fancy department store, in the hopes that he?ll screw up so bad that her daughter will lose interest. Lewis, of course, does screw up, and spectacularly (watch for the vacuum cleaner scene--and look out for that shelf full of basketballs). Stupid but funny, thanks to the always reliable Lewis and former cartoonist-turned-writer/director Frank Tashlin ("The Girl Can?t Help It.").
