| a classic
i last saw this movie years ago and i couldn't remember the name of it. to try explaining it to others i could only recall the "whistling" part. i would be able to watch this movie over and over. the magic bunny, harry makes this movie sweet.jerry lewis makes it funny all the way through. the little boy who tags after him is very adorable. i wonder was has happened to him? this movie is a classic. the steam bath scene when he is being chased by a sumo wrestler was also a great part. then when he was leaving japan and went to check on harry in baggage and he instead sees the little boy. it was sad when he tried to tell the boy to " go away, go home". i would recommend this movie to any one who wants a laugh and a great black and white movie. even a great movie for kids who have never seen a black and white movie before
