Can you name this movie?
Today at work, I was in the staff room and the TV was on a French station, and I noticed what appeared to be an episode of Love Boat. Then I realized it was a movie - just caught the tail end of it, with a cruise ship featured, the credits with a bunch of actors from the 60's, and Jerry Lewis playing 5 different roles. Does anybody know what this movie might be? Because it featured a cruise ship, I thought it might be worth trying to rent it, if I knew what it was called!

Asked my dad. He thinks it was "The Family Jewels".

Donna and Cheryl,
It was The Family Jewels....

Plot Summary for
The Family Jewels (1965)
Nine-year-old Donna Peyton is orphaned when her father dies and leaves her with a $30 million fortune. Her late father's attorney, John Wyman, explains that she must visit each of her six uncles (all played by Jerry Lewis) and decide which of them will become her new "father."

Thanks guys - you're quick! Funny, I had placed it around '65, just by the look of it, and the fashions in the brief scene I did see!

Yep - The Family Jewels. I am a big Jerry Lewis Fan!!!

An orphaned daughter (Donna Butterworth) of a rich industrialist must select a father figure from her seven uncles, all played by Lewis. It's hilarious!
