Dir. Jerry Lewis (1961).
More hit than miss, this zany spoof of the movie business opens like an exploding firecracker and delightfully manages to puncture everyone at a large picture studio called Paramutual. It peters out a bit by the final reel, but the damage is minimal. That great broad Iris Adrian is a standout in a small role.
