Category Archives: John Landis
Jerry Lewis brought to you by John Landis.
The spirit of Frank Tashlin hovers over Jerry Lewis’s first auteurist triumph which came at the height of his power at Paramount, allowing him to construct a huge set, add video tape (which he’d been using since The Bellboy) and fill the stage with a large number of microphones a decade before Altman did the same. Mel Brooks contributed a number of gags, but his original script wasn’t used.
Birthday Boy John Landis celebrates (appropriately*) with some Stooges.
This cheap but popular sci fi spoof was the first Columbia feature for the Stooges, who had contemplated retirement until the galvanic response to the release of the Stooges shorts on nationwide tv in 1958 brought them back into the limelight. The boys accidentally travel to Venus and encounter a giant fire-belching spider a talkative unicorn. Moe retired the eye-poking after this one, averting a blindness epidemic on the playground. This was the first Stooge appearance by Curly Joe DeRita (replacing Joe Besser, who replaced Shemp, who replaced Curly)as the third Stooge.
John Landis takes on A CHUMP AT OXFORD.
Like Saps at Sea, this Hal Roach Laurel & Hardy vehicle was originally conceived as a four-reeler, but was bumped up to 63 minutes to compete in the feature market. These were arguably their last substantial feature releases before a contract with 20th Century Fox reduced them to formula B-pictures. It’s a cultural crime that today’s kids know nothing of Stan and Ollie, but that’s their loss. John McCabe’s 1961 biography “Mr. Laurel & Mr. Hardy” remains the definitive word on the duo.
Mr. John Landis takes us for a ride along Federico Fellini’s La Strada.
The film that put Federico Fellini on the map internationally, with his wife Giuliana Masina’s indelible performance as the waif mistreated by brutish strongman Anthony Quinn. Richard Basehart provides further US name value although he doesn’t dub himself in the English version. Winner of the first Academy Award for foreign language film in 1956.

John Landis walks us through all the things we won’t see in the trailer for Heaven Can Wait.
No, it’s not the Warren Beatty remake of Here Comes Mr. Jordan, but the sublime Ernst Lubitsch comedy fantasy, his biggest commercial hit and generally considered the last of his films to exemplify the inimitable “Lubitsch touch”. Feckless womanizer Don Ameche recounts his love life to urbane devil Laird Cregar at the gates of Hell in a sparking rumination on life, death and the importance of the common man.
John Landis King Faisal tells us about Havana, about Graham Greene, about auteurism, and about Carol Reed’s Our Man In Havana.
Director Carol Reed filmed his extremely well-cast adaptation of Grahame Greene’s spy novel on location in Havana only three months after Fidel Castro’s January 1959 revolution, and completed it just before Cuba aligned itself with the Soviet Union. Alberto Cavalcanti had explored the idea of directing this in the late ’40s (but set in Estonia) and Alfred Hitchcock was also interested, but former film critic Greene nixed him.
