About the Movie

Jerry Lewis directed, co-wrote and starred in this riotously funny movie that set a new standard for screen comedy and inspired the hit remake. Lewis plays a timid, nearsighted chemistry teacher who discovers a magical potion that can transform him into a suave and handsome Romeo. The Jekyll and Hyde game works well enough until the concoction starts to wear off at the most embarrassing times, and the professor begins to suffer hilarious symptoms of his personality split. Co-starring Stella Stevens.

Great great movie

All time best, with one if the greatest
Comedians ever!!!!!!

I love this movie!

I'm surprised there are no reviews for this movie. I personally think it's a lot better than the new one except the new one is funnier but not as good as the older one.


This is one of my all time favorites. Comedic actors are so overlooked and undervalued. I have always thought that that when it came to film making and acting that its easy to make people cry but very difficult to make them laugh. Nobody does it better then Jerry Lewis.
