The Nutty Professor

The Nutty Professor is a 1963 American science fiction comedy film directed, co-written (with Bill Richmond) by, and starring, Jerry Lewis. The score was composed by Walter Scharf. The film is a parody of Robert Louis Stevenson's 1886 novella Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

Plot

Professor Julius Kelp is a nerdy, scruffy, buck-toothed, accident-prone, socially awkward university professor whose experiments in the classroom laboratory are unsuccessful and highly destructive. When a football-playing bully embarrasses and attacks him, Kelp decides to "beef up" by joining a local gym. Kelp's lack of physical strength leads him to seek a solution in his specialty of chemistry. He invents a serum that turns him into Buddy Love: a handsome, suave, charming and brash girl-chasing hipster.
