Trivia / My Friend Irma

  • Billing Displacement: A strange and rather depressing example. The franchise was absolutely huge in it's day but the two feature films are only really recalled and because Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis got their big break in them. They were popular when the films came out too, but back then Marie Wilson was very much the star. The DVD of the films (released as a dual set) are shamelessly packaged around Martin and Lewis with the back cover blurb not only giving the (misleading) impression that they play the stars but only mentioning Irma herself in passing, and none of the other characters/actors at all even though Diana Lynn's Jane is arguably the POV character.
  • Official Fan-Submitted Content: With the comic adaptation fans were encouraged to submit their own ideas for Irma's dresses.
  • The Other Darrin: Diana Lynn replaced Cathy Lewis as Jane in the films. There was also a near miss: Professor Kropotkin was played by Hans Conried on radio. He was meant to be replaced by Felix Bressart but he died during filming so Conried played Kropotkin on screen too.
