|Get off the phone, George.|
|Pamela is not amused|
But I mention it mostly for the intro under the credits. Danny Street sings the title song. Jerry Lewis wears a smart dark suit, narrow tie, fashionably slim-legged, high-water pants, an anachronistic bowler hat and carries an umbrella while sauntering down the streets of London for a good two minutes until the title song goes off.
I love it! It's like a music video before that term was coined. You can see a few people on the street glance his way every now and then. Are they extras? Are they just random people going about their day who happen to see someone who looks like a movie star?
Why do I love this intro? I haven't the vaguest notion. The simple elegance of it, perhaps.
It reminded me of the Justin Timberlake video for "I'm Lovin' It" in which the music star just casually walks down a crowded street to an upbeat catchy tune.
Jerry Paris directs. Terry-Thomas is on hand to elevate the comedy.
