Blu-ray, DVD Release: Boeing Boeing

Christiane Schmidtmer has a layover with Jerry Lewis (l.) and Tony Curtis in Boeing Boeing.

The 1965 bedroom farce film Boeing Boeing, starring Jerry Lewis (The Nutty Professor) and Tony Curtis (Insignificance), is actually based on the 1960 French play of the same name by Marc Camoletti. (The play was revived in London’s West End and on Broadway a few years back to much success.)

The comedy movie follows the lives of two American journalists in Paris, Bernard Lawrence (Curtis) and his friend Robert Reed (Lewis). Bernard, the ultimate bachelor, is juggling romances with three stewardesses who just happen to have different schedules and nationalities. Robert, meanwhile, is scheming to take over for his buddy after Bernard’s job relocates him to another country. Lots of zany situations, close calls and bedroom door-slamming inevitably follows.

Jerry Lewis on why Hollywood's remaking all of his old films -- Exclusive

4 February 2011 11:28 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Last month, Jerry Lewis made news when he agreed to sell the remake rights to three of his classic ’60s Paramount comedies — 1960′s The Bellboy, 1960′s Cinderfella, and 1965′s The Family Jewels. It isn’t the first time that Hollywood has envisioned dollar signs in the 84-year-old legend’s vault. In 1996, Universal remade Lewis’ classic The Nutty Professor with Eddie Murphy, which ended up being a huge box-office hit, launching a Klumps franchise. Afterwards, Lewis expressed mixed feelings about the films’ fart jokes and cheap laughs. All of which makes his recent deal a bit surprising. But in an exclusive interview, »

Jerry Lewis Comedy Remakes Galore

20 January 2011 6:26 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Comedian Jerry Lewis has signed a deal with Artificial Intelligence Entertainment and Social Capital Films to remake three of his most successful comedies from his heyday in the 60's reports Variety.

The companies have acquired remake rights from Lewis to the titles in Lewis' Paramount library which were given back to him in the 1970's. They plan to develop contemporary remakes of "The Bellboy," "Cinderfella" and "The Family Jewels" with each to be considered as a potential franchise for a major comedy star.

Christopher Tuffin, John Baca and George Paige will produce while Lewis will serve as co-executive producer on the films. Tuffin says "What we're aiming to do is combine the spirit of the originals with a modern sensibility."

"The Bellboy" is a slapstick piece following a dysfunctional bellboy who runs amok in a five-star hotel. "Cinderfella" is a comedy version of the Cinderella story with several of the roles reversed. »

"Laaa-dy."

Can anyone ever duplicate that immortal whine Jerry Lewis uttered in his wacky 1963 comedy 'Who's Minding the Store'?

Artificial Intelligence Entertainment and Social Capital Films think so. They've just acquired remake rights from Lewis to 'The Bellboy,' 'Cinderfella,' 'The Family Jewels,' 'The Errand Boy,' 'The Patsy' and 'Who's Minding the Store,' with an immediate emphasis on bringing to the big screen the first three titles.

All those films were made in the 1960s, when Lewis was at his peak -- from 1961 to 1964 he was the No. 1 box office draw in America.

Cinderfella Gets Modern Remake

19 January 2011 8:39 AM, PST | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

If kids today know the name "Jerry Lewis," it's as the guy who hosts the Muscular Dystrophy Association telethons every Labor Day. But long ago in the 1960s, children, Jerry Lewis was a slapstick comedian who was considered a national treasure; he was sort of the Jim Carrey of his day. Now, three of his films that have disappeared into obscurity will be remade with "a modern sensibility."

Lewis' characters were always, shall we say, dumb...so keeping that in mind...here are the plots of the films getting remakes:

Cinderfella (pictured) is a role reversal story of the classic "Cinderella" story with a fairy godfather and a princess who sweeps the choreboy off his feet. The Bellboy is about a skill-lacking bellboy at a luxury hotel in Miami. Family Jewels is about a limo driver (again, not bright) who helps a young orphan heiress decide which of her wacky »

Jerry Lewis films Cinderfella, The Bellboy, and The Family Jewels are set for remakes. I’m not a huge fan of Jerry Lewis comedy to start with, and his recent antics in the press make him less appealing. I'm not so keen on these remakes, though I’d be completely in support of a totally gay take on Cinderfella.

I got a trio of Melissa Etheridge items for you. First, she’s in a new relationship, with Nurse Jackie creator Linda Wallem. Wallem was Etheridge’s “best »
