The Big Mouth

Jerry Lewis
USA 1967
107 min

It is kind of a Hitchcock-streak how the harmless bank employees Gerald Clamson blunders into a plot around stolen diamonds during his annual fishing holiday and has in the end rival gangs and the police on his heels. More like a work of Brecht the narration is offered: A respectable-looking, elderly man intervenes repeatedly throughout the story to arrange and conduct, even if the character’s movements have to be frozen.
