"[T]he movie seems even funnier now..."
Description by OLDIES.com:
Stanley is a bellboy at the Fountainbleau Hotel in Miami Beach. It is there that he performs his duties quietly and without a word to anyone. 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.
Unfortunately for the guests at the Fontainbleu Hotel, one of the bellboys is Stanley, an endearing, but accident-prone nitwit. With Stanley around, zany hotel hijinks abound, for the rubber-faced bellhop creates klutzy, comedic havoc wherever he goes. Lewis' first directorial effort, which he also produced, wrote, and, of course, starred in. Cameos by Milton Berle and Walter Winchell keep the atmosphere festive and the laughs aplenty.
Directorial debut for actor/comedian Jerry Lewis.
Filmed entirely on location at the Fountainebleau Hotel in Miami, Florida.
