Boeing (707) Boeing (707) (1965, USA) C-102m. *** D: John Rich. Starring Tony Curtis, Jerry Lewis, Dany Saval, Christiane Schmidtmer, Suzanna Leigh, Thelma Ritter. Funny comedy set in Paris about womanizer Curtis, who has affairs with three flight stewardesses - simultaneously. Then his calculated schedule doesn't work out anymore, and everything ends in chaos when his colleague Lewis shows up. Ritter is fun as overtaxed housekeeper. This marked Lewis' last film for Paramount Pictures, after 17 years. His character is decidedly more mature than in other films of his. Based on a stage play by Marc Camoletti. Photographed by Lucien Ballard. Score by Neal Hefti. Also known as BOEING BOEING.
