No. 86: The Bellboy
Jerry Lewis is Jewish, right?
1960, dir. Jerry Lewis. Even in a mid-1990s production of Damn Yankees, Jerry Lewis’ echt-Catskills routine—the jokes, the pratfalls, the faces—made him the most Jewish Devil ever. In The Bellboy, which he also wrote and directed, a mute Lewis bumbles and shticks his way from one scene to the next; the film is literally set at the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach.
