The Bellboy

Jerry Lewis
USA 1960
70 min

The directorial debut of Lewis is indeed, as in the prologue from the producer announced, no ordinary film, but a "pure fun, without history, without action." As a dumb bellboy Lewis stumbles in a luxury hotel from one funny situation to the next, encountering several times - a beautiful tribute to the role model – a Stan Laurel-double with hilarious cameos. But he also experiences magical moments that only can happen to a poor sap like him - for example when he is conducting an absent Orchestra.
