Hardly Working

Jerry Lewis

It is no coincidence that the opening credits show scenes from past movies from Jerry Lewis, since he plays as an aging comedian (at the time of shooting he was 54) an aging clown, called Bo Hooper who loses his job in the beginning of the story. Disoriented he tries various jobs and they all end, not unsurprisingly, in comedy and disasters. So there only remains the public service! Via the detour of working as a postman Bo finally finds back to his ancestral clown-existence. Introduction: Chris Fujiwara
