Product Description

Product Description

Struggling magician, The Great Wooley (Jerry Lewis) and his lop-eared partner Harry Hare plan to dazzle audiences with magical feats during their USO tour of Japan and Korea. Jerry combines his trademark antics with a compassionate central story: an orphaned Japanese boy is drawn out of his shell by the magician’s humor and caring. The film features the Los Angeles Dodgers and Suzanne Pleshette’s screen debut as young soldier with a soft spot for Jerry. The Bridge on the River Kwai star, Sessue Hayakawa appears as the boy’s grandfather who just happens to be building a miniature version the bridge from the classic film. This was the fourth (of eight) collaboration between Jerry and director Frank Tashlin (Who’s Minding the Store).

3.0 out of 5 stars Dated lewis film in japan April 22 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In my mind Tashlin's least successful lewis film,and he made quite a few. Japan has always been a source of filmmaking in comparing the state of u.s. america relations,and we must keep in mind that Japan was once a big empire commanding much of asia and threatening the world economically/politically militarily. This should be the focus as the film starts on the u.s.o. tour with Lewis the magician coming to Japan,and having to deal with the post war world and a fatherless boy while romancing the Pleshette character. While i wss watching the film i felt the scenes between lewis and the japanese boy and mother never came off...i found a lack of chemistry...which i found there in the more accomodating film the family jewells(1965). Here we have Japan and amidst the baseball and the new ally and some intrigueing slapstick the film never holds our interest. The slapstick scene with the carpet and coming off the plane is wonderfully set up and hilarious...and the writing seems seriously dated. I doubt the japanese women,or asian being subservient to men any longer holds,as the family structure and personal relationships there and concomitant dysfunctions mirror western social problems. So the structure and background of the film showing a comic dealing with a westernized comic encountering an asian society where males predominate is history and the film suffers much as a result...even the pleshette characters moans throughout about dealing with this legacy of american women's emancipation being effected by this servile attitude among asian women. I found an interesting comment by Tashlin..what is it in the male that was attracted to such females,what kink in their armour?
There are many jokes and sight gags but the film really doesnt come together...

5.0 out of 5 stars This Movie Has Magic! July 7 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Although Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis made a great team, this movie, The Geisha Boy, shows Jerry's true talent solo.
Jerry plays a magician named Mr. Wooley, who plans to entertain troops overseas to make a few bucks. Part of his tricks include a rabbit named Harry. This rabbit plays a big part in the movie (perhaps taking Dean's place?). Struggling, Mr. Wooley thinks that playing for the USO will make him a few bucks and give him, perhaps, the big break he's been waiting for. In this time he meets a beautiful Japanese woman, who has a nephew that laughs at practically the sight of Mr. Wooley, and is forever changed by Mr. Wooley. In this comical love story, also featuring Suzanne Pleshette in her first movie role, Jerry really shows true talent for clean comedy and laughs without a sidekick (if you don't count the rabbit). There are also a few surprise things in the movie that you really have to pay attention to catch, making it even more fun!
I highly recommend anyone who enjoys Jerry to watch this film. It will have you rolling with laughter and magically feeling good!

Owing to Eddie Murphy remake, "The Nutty Professor" comes to our mind first as Jerry Lewis's most representative work, but it also tends to overshadow his other neglected gems, one of which is here, "The Geisha Boy." Despite its now corny title, the film has still a lot to offer for our laugh.
Jerry is this time a second-rate magician, who goes to Japan and war-time Korea, to entertain the soldiers; instead, he falls in love with a Japanese woman Kimi (Nobu McCarthy). He also forms an unlikely relationship with an orphaned boy, who considers Jerry as a new father. As the time of returning to America comes near, he has to decide: stay or leave?
Besides the touching story, in which Jerry shows his tender side, he exhibits lots of his crazy gags as usual, and they are very funny even now. Among many others, my favorite is "the biggest splash in the world" that happens in the Japanese public bath. And Harry the Hare always steals the show -- look how he runs in a hotel -- and Sessue Hayakawa appears as a cameo, to parody his role in a David Lean film (you know what).
As far as I can judge from the film, Jerry's segments are all shot inside America, just like they did in Bogart's "Tokyo Joe" (though we see a big statue of Buddha in Kamakura, Japan, Jerry does not share the screen with it.) The town of Japan is obviously made in a soundstage, but these facts are not important. As a Japanese, I am not a little surprised (pleasantly) to find that the film is friendly to Japan, (remember both nations were at war 13 years before) and inaccurate descriptions of Japan, which are still often found in Hollywood movies, are reduced to the minimal level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Domo Arrigato Gozaimasu, Jerry! Dec 16 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
One of the better Jerry Lewis movies made after his split with Dean Martin. Jerry appears as an inept magician with a white rabbit named Harry as a constant companion. Together, they travel to Japan to perform as part of a goodwill tour sponsored by the State Department. While there, Jerry befriends a young boy who constantly follows him around. Jerry gets into one hilarious jam after another everywhere he goes in Japan. The 1958 Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team (their first year in LA after the move from Brooklyn) makes a cameo appearance in this film. Overall, very entertaining and funny with a couple of touching moments between Jerry and his young friend.
