I'm guessing the script was written around the massive indoor set...
23 September 2013 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Jerry Lewis co-wrote, produced, directed and stars in this feeble comedy about a nerdy bachelor, jilted by his lady-love, who has sworn off women; looking for work, he unknowingly takes a job in a boarding house full of nubile females. Paramount was very proud of their indoor set (three floors plus a working elevator) and, indeed, the fanciful way the movie is shot utilizing the space is very clever. However, the loosely-hinged plot of "The Ladies Man" is character-driven--and since there are no actual characters beyond Lewis' schnook, interest in the picture beyond the art and set direction wanes early. Lewis the actor is his own worst enemy when he it comes to directing himself (when the women are introduced in a room-by-room montage, the sweeping-camera effect is ruined by constant cuts back to Jerry, sleeping with his rump in the air). George Raft turns up in a cameo as himself, dancing under a spotlight with Jerry in his arms, but Lewis shoots the sequence from so far away we can't tell who's on the dance-floor. A big blunder. *1/2 from ****
