Barbara is a very rich girl who falls in love with Norman Phiffier, a poor young man. She doesn't tell him who she really is and prepares to marry him. But, Mrs. Tuttle (Barbara's mother) doesn't want her daughter to mary such a poor man. So, she hires Norman at one of her big stores, and gives him the most difficult and disgusting works. She hopes that seeing Norman humiliated, Barbara will finally leave him. But things don't work exactly this way...Written by

One way or another, Norman Phiffier's last name gets mispronounced seven times in the film. See more »
freeze frame when Norman Phiffier (Jerry Lewis) punctures the vacuum balloon and you will see the following : a blank white frame, , a frame of a Coleman camping supplies setting on a table with what could be flames across the top, three frames of clouds of dust, an upside down production still showing Jerry Lewis standing on the ladder left hand resting on his side and his right hand holding the knife resting on the top of the ladder beneath the vacuum balloon before it was punctured looking off camera, a solid black frame and a frame of Barbara Tuttle and her dad standing behind the shelves of dishes.

Not my Favorite J.L. Film, (that would be Errand Boy), but delightful, nonetheless. Great physical comedy and some lightweight satire ("a man has to be king of his own ranch style tract home").
The woman who played Jane Hathaway in Beverly Hillbillies makes a cameo appearance as a Big Game Hunter looking for a new rifle in the Sporting Dept., where Jerry's Character is working the counter.
The usual slapstick devices come into play such as the golf bag sch tick (you know, the one), the golf ball going out the window...making, let's just say..multiple bounces along its journey, and of course.
The exercise bicycles on the mattress, and ensuing endurance jog make my side hurt with laughter.
Home sick from work or school, either from a cold or the bad ironic humor that pervades your weekdays? This is your film.
If you don't like Jerry, you have no soul.
