Stanley is just one in the small army of unsung heroes who keep the Hotel Fontainebleau in Miami Beach operating. Or at least, that's the goal. With Stanley on board, you can be sure that anything and everything will go wrong with side-splitting results.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Jerry Lewis wrote, starred in and directed this classic 1960 comedy, perhaps one of Lewis' best known films.

Containing no story, or plot, whatsoever - (Just an onslaught of erratic and clumsily inter-weaved sight gags) - "The Bellboy" was written, produced, and directed by Jerry Lewis who, of course, also starred himself as Stanley, the title character.

With its prevailing "Anything-For-A-Laugh" mentality - If "The Bellboy" was really supposed to be Jerry Lewis at his comical best - Then - I'd sure hate to see him at his unfunniest worst.

Set at the luxurious Hotel Fontainebleau in Miami Beach, Florida - I could hardly believe that a hotel of this one's high calibre would ever hire such an idiot as Stanley to attend to their guests.

Produced on a $900,000 budget - "The Bellboy" (filmed in b&w) made back 10x that amount upon its initial theatrical release back in 1960.

Jerry Lewis was great in this as he always was. A good movie, I wish they still made comedies like this!
