Stars: Jerry Lewis
Year: 1960
The Bellboy was Jerry Lewis's first movie as director.The movie is different in the sense that it has no fixed plot or clear storyline.It is basically a collection of small episodes centering on a bellboy(Jerry Lewis) at an expensive five star hotel.The second interesting thing about the movie is that Lewis does not speak until the very end of the movie.He invokes laughter by his body actions.The support actors speak their lines but the main lead doesn't.
The movie took less than a month to finish and was a huge box office success(it made around $10 million).Its not your typical zany Lewis movie but nevertheless its an enjoyable little movie(Its running length is only 71 minutes)
My Rating:4/10
