Don’t Raise the Bridge, Lower the River (1968) starring Jerry Lewis, Jacqueline Pearce, Terry-Thomas
Don’t Raise the Bridge, Lower the River is a Jerry Lewis film, based on the book of the same name. Oddly, Jerry Lewis is cast playing the part of the straight man in the movie. He plays George Lester, an American who goes from one get-rich-quick scheme to another. Much to the distress of his suffering wife Pamela, played by the lovely Jacqueline Pearce. After three years of being dragged across the globe, she has had enough of his constant neglect of her. And she sues for divorce. While she leaves the country as part of dealing with her emotions, George decides to ‘renovate’ her ancestral home. It’s a stately English manor, that he turns into a 1960’s style discotheque and Chinese restaurant. When Pamela eventually returns home, she is aghast. And George thought to regain her affections by proving that he can make money by staying in England.Read More »Don’t Raise the Bridge, Lower the River
