1961, Paramount, 95 min, Dir: Jerry Lewis

Writer-director Jerry Lewis stars as Herbert H. Heebert, who swears off women when he catches his girlfriend making out with another man. That’s easier said than done on his new job – handyman at an all-female boarding house (a multistory, open-faced set that allows for some amazing crane shots). A quintessential Lewis comedy, peppered with absurd sight gags.
