Nutty Professor, The
Jerry Lewis directed, co-wrote and starred in this riotously funny movie that set a new standard for screen comedy. Lewis plays Dr. Julius Kelp, a homely and nearsighted chemistry teacher who's ignored by the ladies and ridiculed by his students and fellow professors. All of that changes one day when he concocts a magical potion that can transform him into a sophisticated and handsome Romeo; a confident, self-assured swinger dubbed "Buddy Love." But the Jekyll-and-Hyde routine soon creates double the trouble for the bumbling professor and the girl of his dreams (Stella Stevens), a student who's fallen head-over-heels for the conceited, debonair Buddy.
