Facts about

The cast of this film is comprised largely of nightclub performers who were appearing in or near the Fontainbleau Hotel in Miami, FL, during the time of filming. Jerry Lewis was under tremendous pressure to finish the film quickly in order for it to be released in time for the summer season. Despite writing a 165-page script (enough for a film of roughly 2-1/2 hours), Lewis' final cut ran 71 minutes.
Cinderfella was ready to be released that summer, but Jerry Lewis wanted it to wait until Christmas, being a family-oriented film. Regardless, Paramount demanded a summer film, so Lewis shot this film in four weeks, directing himself because nobody else could do it as quickly as needed.
Jerry Lewis shot the movie in four weeks at Miami Beach's Fontainebleau Hotel while he also was performing there. He edited it during his subsequent engagement in Las Vegas.
