Jerry Lewis Returns to the Cosmos

26 August 2017 10:55 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

 

On August 20, 2017, Jerry Lewis took a pratfall off this mortal coil, presumably knocking an unwitting dowager on her keister and sending a surprised cop into an open manhole on his way out. The durable enfant terrible was all of 91 years when he finally left the building though he had been making spirited public appearances as recently as January of this year.

For the inquisitive Jerry fan, Shawn Levy’s 1997 King of Comedy: The Life and Art of Jerry Lewis, remains the first and last stop for the straight scoop on America’s premiere nudnik. Levy, who endured the full fury of the comedian’s legendary wrath to get his story, is as admiring of his subject’s accomplishments as he was repelled by his whiplash mood swings. The hard knock apprenticeship in the Catskills, the Freudian-fueled soap opera of his partnership with Dean Martin, the boastful sex-capades, they’re all there and then some. »

Jerry Lewis, Actor and Filmmaker, Passes Away at 91

21 August 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Jerry Lewis, a comedian, actor and filmmaker whose career stretched from the 1940s into the current decade, has died, according to multiple news reports. He was 91. His father was a vaudeville entertainer and his mother was a piano player for a radio station, so perhaps it was natural for Lewis to start performing at an early age. He teamed up with singer Dean Martin in 1946 and they became a hit on the nightclub circuit, leading to a radio show, television appearances and movies. They starred in At War With the Army (1950) and then starred in 14 more movies during the next six years before the team's partnership ended. Lewis launched his solo career, showcasing his talents as a singer. He also began starring in his own movies, starting with The Delicate Delinquent. He...

Jerry Lewis, Comedy Legend, Dies at 91

20 August 2017 10:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jerry Lewis, the brash slapstick comic who became a pop culture sensation in his partnership with Dean Martin and then transformed himself into an auteur filmmaker of such comedic classics as “The Nutty Professor” and “The Bellboy,” has died in Las Vegas. He was 91.

Lewis died at his home in Las Vegas at about 9:15 a.m. Sunday morning, his agent confirmed.

For most of his career, Lewis was a complicated and sometimes polarizing figure. An undeniable comedic genius, he pursued a singular vision and commanded a rare amount of creative control over his work with Paramount Pictures and other studios. He legacy also includes more than $2.5 billion raised for the Muscular Dystrophy Association through the annual Labor Day telethon that he made an end-of-summer ritual for decades until he was relieved of the hosting job in 2011.

But Lewis’ brand of humor did not always wear well as times and attitudes changed. Over »
