The Ladies Man Instrueret af Jerry Lewis
As if to let the viewer know that he’s well aware of his own absurd streak even if he can’t quite conquer it, Lewis makes his tendency towards attention-hogging becomes a major component of the film’s last third, worked out with peerless comedic invention.

[The set] was a metaphor for Lewis’s career to date, manifest as a playground for his id and designed such that the very architecture was a gag in itself, a key supporting player in the fantasy of Lewis’s wild personality. It’s part of what makes the movie so genius. The Ladies Man created the ideal conditions for Lewis’s fraught, strange personality to run amok. All the joy of performance, the control-freak sense of form, the at times brutal sense of self-excoriation: It’s all here.

The house where Herbert lives and works is one of the greatest and most influential sets of all time, a colossal doll-house-like cutaway, in cream-frosted colors, that Lewis fills with a choreographed throng of activity à la Berkeley and Tati… In the end, the movie exalts the modest pleasures of everyday people, but, along the way, Lewis reveals the madder music within that they whistle while they work.
