ONE MORE TIME!
This quite unfunny comedy film shows once and for all the Jerry Lewis has no idea what comedy is. Lewis directs the film like a lead balloon and Davis & Lawford are left to struggle through unfunny joke after dire slapstick situation trying desperately to conjure what personal charm they can. At least Sammy gets a few songs. Where are Lee and Cushing, you ask. Well, they have the briefest of brief cameos as Sammy pulls a copy of the Kama Sutra off the library shelf to open a secret passage down to the cellars of the mansion where he finds a mad doctor lab complete with Frankenstein monster, hunchback assistant, blonde strapped to an operating table and Peter Cushing (in his Frankenstein garb) and Christopher Lee (in his full Dracula drag). While Sammy mugs in exaggerated horror, Cushing and Lee have one line apiece. And then they're gone from the movie. Believe it or don't, this was the SECOND Salt & Pepper film!
