The Disorderly Orderly
The Disorderly Orderly: Directed by Frank Tashlin. With Jerry Lewis, Glenda Farrell, Susan Oliver, Everett Sloane. Medical student Jerome Littlefield works as an orderly at a private clinic where he creates havoc due to his ineptitude.
Not a good film, not by any stretch of the imagination, but I did get to see an older Glenda Farell doing her thing. My only other experience with her acting was from about 25 years before this film, so her performance here is much more muted and subtle than I was expecting. Guess you can only keep that classic Farrell energy up for so long?
Regardless, Jerry Lewis seems to be an acquired taste that I’ve yet to acquire. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen plenty of his work in the past, but this one seems to go past the level of cringey behavior that I’m ok with.
