4.5 This has aged really well; my teenager was in stitches and this was as much of a hit for family movie night as a new Tarantino. Sets/costumes designed for the 1960s Technicolor are such fun; the only filmmaker I can think of today who styles color so flamboyantly is Anna Biller. Why is using color now considered "retro"? What's more, this has got Eva Gabor, Shirley Maclaine, Dorothy Malone and Anita Ekberg!
Martin emerges from one of his song and dance numbers to see Lewis on a color television goofily talking about comic-books; ultimately Tashlin had his finger on the pulse of the 1950's...vulgar art is here to stay.
Similar a otras películas del dúo cómico de los 50 donde lo que más me llama la atención es el debút de Shirley MacLaine. Encantadora a pesar de verse rodeada de otras damas de cabellos dorados. MacLaine desde ya tenía ese encanto sumiso que no se pierde incluso entre las piruetas y el canto.
One of the first movie of Shirley MacLaine, I 'm starting with a pretty good one of her filmography. Funny, and already a little quirky, I love her duet with Jerry Lewis. There's also a red cat in this movie, and Shirley is The Bat Lady :D
One of the best offering from the Martin/Lewis tandem. Tashlin gives the film a good pace and non-sensical visual rhythm which counter-balances Lewis' jesting.
Strong (and attractive) female cast: Shirley MacLaine, Dorothy Malone, Eva Gabor and Anita Ekberg, no less!
