Saturday, March 29, 2014, 4:30 p.m.

Dir. Jerry Lewis. 1961, 95 mins. 35mm. With Jerry Lewis, Helen Traubel, Pat Stanley, Lillian Briggs. Architectural structure replaces narrative structure in one of Jerry Lewis’s greatest directorial achievements, a comedy featuring a cutaway house, one of the most elaborate sets ever created in Hollywood. Jerry (as Herbert H. Heebert) seeks sanctuary in a home for woman, as the film maps a topography of repression and desire.
