Double Feature with ROAD TO UTOPIA (5:00, 9:15)

(1963) dir Jerry Lewis w/Jerry Lewis, Stella Stevens, Del Moore, Kathleen Freeman [107 min; DCP]
Though Edith Head is well known for the glamorous outfits that she designed for female stars, she also designed for men (most notably for THE STING) – and here she does double-duty! In Jerry Lewis’ outrageous comedy, a nerdy scientist creates a serum that transforms him into the womanizing, Buddy Love.

“Of all Lewis’s films, Nutty Professor may be the closest to achieving an unfussy plea for pathos.” – Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine

“Lewis constructed one of his sturdiest scripts in The Nutty Professor, and he wasted scarcely a minute of it.” – Noel Murray, The Dissolve
