The Theremin in The Delicate Delinquent

The Delicate Delinquent

Theremin played by Samuel Hoffman



A cowardly young janitor, constantly taunted by the youth gangs in his neighborhood, ends up getting mistaken for one of them and is hauled to the police station.

'The Dean Martin-Jerry Lewis comedy team may have called it quits, but that didn't mean the laughs were over. Jerry's first film without longtime partner Dino makes a hilarious case for law enfarcement! The nutty one stars as The Delicate Delinquent, a bumbling janitor who pals around with the switchblade set but decides to become a cop.

Darren McGavin (A Christmas Story) co-stars as one of New York's finest in this terrific blend of zaniness and social comment that's one of Jerry Lewis' finest. '

PARAMOUNT PICTURES PRESENTS JERRY LEWIS as THE DELICATE DELINQUENT. Co-Starring DARREN McGAVIN, MARTHA HYER. Featuring ROBERT IVERS, HORACE McMAHON. Produced by JERRY LEWIS. Written and Directed by DON McGUIRE.

The theremin makes a small cameo appearance in this movie, as Gerry Lewis finds it in the office of his Professor. Any thereminist worth his salt will realise that the actions on screen, and the sound of the instrument don't quite match up... the theremin was 'dubbed - in' later by Samuel Hoffman, and it is his theremin that appears in the movie.
