The Errand Boy is a 1961 comedy directed by Jerry Lewis. Morty Tashman (Jerry Lewis) has a less than glamorous job as a paper-hanger, although working on the lot of Paramutual Pictures at least gives him a glimpse into the lives of people with better jobs than his. Unexpectedly, however, Morty finds himself recruited for a much different role: the executives, led by Tom Paramutual (Brian Donlevy), want Morty to act as a spy for them. Mr. Paramutual wants Morty to find out why the studio seems to be spending far too much money, and he needs an innocuous-looking insider to get the job done. As a cover, Morty takes on a job as a mail clerk. Working alongside people such as Mr. Sneak (Howard McNear), Grumpy (Stanley Adams) and Miss Giles (RenÃ©e Taylor), Morty tries his hardest to figure out the budget, but instead he just winds up getting into one sticky situation after another.
