  1. José Neves's rating of the film The Geisha Boy

  2. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Geisha Boy

    ***1/2. Only artists and kids can see what's behind the reality of things (Paramount, Kwai). This is a theme present in the whole Jerry Lewis filmography. Strongly recommended.

  3. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film The Geisha Boy

    The subtle ignorance is a nice quality of this film. I find myself moved by attitudes I despise.

  4. wolfmansRazor's rating of the film The Geisha Boy

    Lewis has a funny character to play, and Tashlin works in some inspired gags, many involving Harry the Hare. As usual, Lewis mugs too much, and the scenes drag on about three beats too long, but that's made up for by the quite beautiful Vistavision cinematography. As usual with Lewis, it's drowned in sentiment, but here it kind of works because the pathos are directed at the boy more than at Lewis' character.
