All that he displays are facial expressions and a comedic slapstick style. And anything that can go wrong - does go wrong when Stanley is involved. Then one day, Jerry Lewis, big star, arrives at the hotel and some of the staff notice the striking resemblance. Stanley continues to do what he was hired to do while star Lewis has more trouble with his entourage than the hotel accommodations.

A mishmash of silent and verbal *comedy*
Well...the previous comments made me interested in seeing this film. But to call it a film is akin to calling advertising art. The film although quite old neither has the art or humour that slapstick or verbal comedy is supposed to have.

It is a self-indulgent piece of fluff that doesn't highlight Lewis's obvious ability from other films and worse...involves other names from the era...notably Milton Berle and a Stan laurel look-alike that looks almost as embarrassed as the real Laurel would have been had he not wisely chosen not to appear.

As homage even it fails. Silent film would have suited this better...but no...we get sound...because the silly faces just aren't enough.

It may be that I am spoiled by watching so much comedy over the years (and yes...this film was made the year before I was born) but there is no real substance to the jokes...subtlety was not what I was looking for...after all..slapstick is hardly ever subtle...but sledgehammer and jokes telegraphed from Pluto was just a bit pathetic.

The film is however watchable on a few levels.

It highlights a man determined to milk the cow as much as possible while his star was ascendant...and that for whatever it means...is clearly a clever ploy on a managerial level.

It highlights his obvious desire to be visible as much as possible...to the point of playing himself...

It is so bad that just watching it makes you chuckle wryly about his motives.

Worth a look just to see that the movie-going public in 1960 were just as gullible about BIG NAMES as they are now...no matter what dross they put out.

There is no real wit...I guess that is my major grief with the film...no point to it even (and I realise it was shot in 4 weeks and had no plot) but it truly amazed me that so many people commented on the comedic genius of THIS film compared to some of the rest of his oeuvre...

Probably not the definitive Lewis film but considering Jerry wrote, directed and starred in the flick, fans should take a chance
Stanley (Jerry Lewis) is a bellhop at a posh Miami hotel. It is hard to see how he stays employed! When a manager tells him to empty the trunk of a guest's car, for example, the auto turns out to be a Volkswagen beetle. Confused, Stanley nevertheless takes out the car's engine and presents it to the guests. Another time, an overweight lady checks into the hotel in order to complete a diet program. She loses a great deal of pounds and looks great but Stanley decides to give her a box of chocolates, as a reward, and she reverts to her old habits and fatter self. In short, this film is a series of episodes in the life of a hotel bellboy, strung together nicely. Lewis' usual facial expressions, physical humor, and antics are here for the world to see. As a legendary comic, he does a nice job but, this is certainly not his most memorable film. One would have to say The Nutty Professor or even one of my favorites, Way Way Out, are better examples of his talent. With that in mind, however, fans of Lewis should definitely carve out a couple of hours to watch this movie. It is fun, if not totally successful, flick.

I really enjoyed this!
Even though Jerry Lewis is meant to be a really quiet Bellboy, that doesn't mean he'll give up with his usual silly tricks and of course, making you laugh. Seriously I think he is a comedy genius, he can do anything from being quiet to yapping a lot!

The most memorable scene I'll never forget is when he was suppose to get baggage from the airport but instead, he rode the plane to where the president should be left off. However he didn't appear so it was instead Lewis carrying the baggage and not the president. I'll honestly never forget that scene, it was such genius!

It was funny to think Lewis played himself and the bellboy at the same time. Jerry Lewis is well able to play anything at the same time! He really made me laugh in this, check this out!

Dated but significant
Jerry Lewis was a genius. After his partnership with Dean Martin (I recommend you read JL's excellent autobiography Dean & Me - A Love Story) ended and he made a few successful comedies just as an actor (notably with director Frank Tashlin), JL moved on to become star, writer and director.

His first film was supposed to be Cinderfella - a Christmas movie. But, the studio wanted a summer movie from him as well such was his popularity. So, while staying in Miami and engaged in live performances, he took out the time to write, star in and direct The Bellboy. In addition to all this, he invented the video-assist technique which is a standard tool today when making a movie. All this in four weeks. He went on to Las Vegas for further live performances where he did the editing.

The film itself, as the opening monologue frankly confesses is not about plot or any specific sequences. Its a series of comedic gags - snippets completely unrelated to each other. Some are funny, most are dated. Nothing to capture the magic of the Dean years or future classics from JL like The Nutty Professor. However, for fans of JL, it is required viewing. His facial contortions are brilliant. The DVD special features contain an act on stage with JL while rehearsing for the movie. Very nice.

72 minutes of of sight gags
Jerry Lewis's directorial debut is 72 minutes of sight gag after sight gag as Lewis plays a bellboy at the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami. Despite the harassment of co-workers and bullying of managers, Lewis manages to get EVERY job thrown at him done in his own outrageous ways. He also plays two roles...the other being himself(!), in town for an engagement at the hotel. Lewis is priceless in both roles, pantomiming his bellboy role and playing it straight as himself. There are many highlights in the film, from Lewis making the long walk across an insanely large empty theater to dozens of hotel guests trying unlock their rooms with the wrong key. The supporting cast includes Alex Gerry, Bob Clayton and two actresses playing Mrs. Hartunga! Milton Berle has a very clever cameo.

Very unusual....but worth seeing.
This is one of Jerry Lewis' most unusual films. While many of his are quite episodic (with lots of little comedy skits buried within the film), this one is episodic--with no real plot to support it. In other words, it's JUST comedy skits and there is no attempt to create a back story or plot. While this isn't the sort of film I'd usually want to see, it's nice for a change of pace. In many ways, it reminds me of the Mr. Hulot films by Jacques Tati--which isn't surprising, as Lewis has praised Tati's work (and vice-versa).

The film takes place at a swank Miami hotel. Jerry plays a bellboy who always seems to be getting into trouble or being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Many of the skits are only mildly funny--but they come so quickly that it really doesn't matter. Among the best of the routines is when the great actor, Jerry Lewis, comes to the hotel--as well as Milton Berle. Seeing the bellboy AND Lewis was a clever touch--and I loved seeing the entourage that got out of Lewis' limo. Quite engaging and worth seeing. I also marvel that Lewis wrote, directed and starred in this film and did it so very quickly.

Dated
Most viewers watching this today will be puzzled as to why this movie has received so much acclaim and was a success at the box office. True, Jerry doesn't do his "kid" character (he's mute until the end), but he does his spastic movements - and there's a flaw there. A little of this goes a long way, and Jerry keeps doing it until he beats it to death.

Most of the other gags in the movie don't seem creative today, or funny. The movie does kill time for its 72 minutes, but it really isn't funny. I've nothing against Lewis - he's been good before and after this movie - but he's not funny here.

At His Goofy Best
I love it when Jerry's in the crowded showgirl's dressing room, and just as things get revealing his hand suddenly covers the camera eye. This is arguably Lewis's funniest movie. His career post- Dean Martin needed a new direction and he got the big boost here. As I recall, critics were encouraging, while the movie scored at the box-office.

There's no story, just a series of physical comedy skits that Jerry does without speaking. In a way, it's a tribute to comedy of the silent era, which may be why the ersatz Stan Laurel makes a clever appearance. Of course, some routines are funnier than others, while all are filmed at a plush Miami Beach hotel where Jerry's an inept-- to say the least-- bellboy. Except for Milton Berle, no celebrities appear in the large cast, which really puts the spotlight on Jerry. Apparently, he came up with the script and routines in a surprisingly short period (IMDB), probably seeing the comedy potential while working the hotel stage.

All in all, it's pure Lewis at his goofy best (without the sometimes grating voice) and most consistently innovative. Anyway, I want to hire him to move chairs into our social club's cavernous hall. Thanks to Lewis, I'm still chuckling over that little gem.

JERRY'S BEST
Out of the Jerry Lewis movies I have seen, this is his best in my opinion. Excellent slapstick and sight gags. This movie will NEVER BE DATED. My favorite bit is where he has to answer the phones although there are many other great ones. GRADE: B+

He just makes me want to cry
When I was growing up in the 50's, I thought that Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis were the tops, along with Laurel & Hardy, Abbot & Costello, and of course "the boys". Whenever I saw a movie with Martin only, I wondered where was Lewis. Or one with Hardy, "Where was Stan?". Or, "How come Shemp was in there without Larry & Moe?" It was almost sad watching this movie....well watching almost all of it, because I was embarrassed for the guy. There might have been 1 or 2 skits that actually brought a smile, but usually it was because of someone else in the skit. He seemed to be just trying too hard to try and be funny....and that's the feeling I had about most of his movies after the M & L split...he was just trying to prove he could make it on his own.

In another posting someone said this movie was the "best of his carrier". It may well have been, but to me, his career spiraled down after he and Dean Martin went their separate ways. I, as many others, always felt sorry for the poor picked on character he played opposite Dean. And I felt sorry for the actor in just about every film he's made since.

I love good slapstick and I have fond memories of Abbott & Costello, Martin & Lewis, Laurel & Hardy and the 3 Stooges shorts. Until Steve Martin's "All of Me", the aforementioned groups were the masters of comedy for me. Steve Martin's routine when his character, Roger Cobb, and Edwina Cutwater (Lily Tomlin) merge is a tour de force, top of the line, all time great comedy routine.

It gets up to a 4 because of Uncle Milty.
