Wacky movies of the early 60's.

Does anyone out there remember the Jerry Lewis movie,"Who's Minding the Store?"I really think this was truly Jerry's masterpiece comedy. I have never seen it aired on TCM. It had a great cast and was just hilarious as well as charming. Jill St. John was just so cute! Also, I have a great fondness for " It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World." There were so many talented actors in the movie, but I remember Jonathan Winters and Dick Shawn as stand-outs.

My favorite Lewis movie is "The Bellboy." It proved that in 1960 you could have (an almost) silent comedy. Thatone has been shown on TCM but I think his others were Paramount or Universal so that makes it harder to get them on.

 

I like the Day/Hudson movies too.

> I also love the Day/Hudson movies as well, hence my thread name!!! does Jan Morrow ring a bell? My favorite is "Pillow Talk." and "Please Do Not Disturb." I would love to see Day do an interview with TCM.

 

It did ring a bell, I just wasn't sure which bell it was, ha! I think the way Tony Randall

wimpers her name, "Jaa-an" is so funny. She's hilarious in the Ross Hunter films

(and very good in his drama, Midnight Lace).

 

I always waver between Pillow Talk and Lover, Come Back! for favorite DD comedy.

I have many happy childhood memories of watching wacky comedies in my neighborhood theatre. Just a few that come to mind - The aforementioned Who's Minding the Store, It's Only Money, The Thrill of It All, 40 Pounds of Trouble, The Man From the Diner's Club, The Absent-Minded Professor, Son of Flubber, The 3 Stooges in Orbit, 3 Stooges Go Around the World in a Daze, Call Me Bwana, Good Neighbor Sam, The Great Race. A great time to be a kid.

Ah, the good old days, when they made "sex comedies" without any sex it them.

>>I'm almost certain that TCM has shown Who's Minding the Store?, but I don't remember when.

 

Never mind that one, it's WHO'S MINDING THE MINT? that I want to see again. It's been over 40 years now.
