Trivia

A dispute over which actor--Tony Curtis or Jerry Lewis--would receive top billing was settled in print ads and posters by criss-crossing names on a diagonal so a portion of each star's name on the top line appeared on the top line (first name for one, surname for the other--with remainder of name on bottom line in reversed order.) In the film's trailer both names flash on screen in an animated circle, rotating so rapidly it's impossible to discern who is the top-billed star. See more »

Jerry was kicked to secondary role!!!
1 March 2019 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

Unnoticed Jerry Lewis was totally shallowed by Tony Curtis in this sexy comedy by the way he appears around after half hour, when Curtis's character took over the picture and didn't share the leadership anymore, Sorry to Jerry who accepted a serious role instead a dumb guy which he used to do on Lewis & Martin era, but the three steward a breathtaking beauties who saves the whole picture of the entire flop, the germany there was the most sex appeal for all them, his voluptuous body size is outrageous sexy followed by Suzanna Leigh ( The Deadly Bees ) a really stunning beauty, Dany Saval was too skinny, lovely face only without attributes needs to this kind of role, also a speechless and priceless performance by Thelma Ritter!!
