Who's Minding the Store? ★★½ 1963

Well, it's certainly not Lewis, who plays poodle sitter Raymond Phiffier who's in love with rich girl Barbara (St. John). Barbara's imperious mother (Moorehead) is determined to break up the duo and hires Raymond to work at the family department store (hoping he'll be a disaster), instead he becomes a success in his own slapstick way. 90m/C VHS . Jerry Lewis, Jill St. John, Agnes Moorehead, John McGiver, Ray Walston, Nancy Kulp; D: Frank Tashlin; W: Frank Tashlin, Harry Tugend; C: Wallace Kelley; M: Joseph J. Lilley.
