Jerry Lewis in "The Nutty Professor."

Jekyll and Hyde Week begins at Trailers from Hell with screenwriter Sam Hamm introducing 1963's "The Nutty Professor," starring Jerry Lewis as nerd-turned-heartthrob Buddy Love.

Probably Jerry Lewis's most enduring film, and the one that sparked a critical reappraisal of his entire oeuvre, this variation on The Two Faces of Dr. Jekyll has inspired not only a 1996 Eddie Murphy remake and follow-up but an animated direct-to-video sequel and a proposed Broadway musical version directed by Jerry with music by the late Marvin Hamlisch. Look for an impossibly young Henry Gibson in a miniscule role in his first feature.
