Jerry Lewis

Release Date

Release Notes



It's hard to settle on Jerry Lewis's most ridiculous movie, but a strong case can be made for this 1958 farce: Monsieur Lewis plays a second-rate magician who goes on a USO tour; at one show he makes a young Japanese boy laugh for the first time since the tragic death of his father. The two soon form a bond, and Jerry hits on the kid's hot aunt. See the enfant terrible of American comedy at his best-worst.
