Peter Travers on Jerry Lewis: The Ultimate Funnyman as Total Filmmaker

21 August 2017 7:40 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

I annoyed Jerry Lewis once by asking him about The Day the Clown Cried, a movie he starred in and directed in 1972, and then refused to release. "It's awful," said Lewis of the Holocaust drama in which he starred as a circus clown who entertains Jewish children as he leads them to their deaths in Nazi gas chambers. Why not show it and let the world decide? "I'm ashamed of it," Lewis told me flatly. When I pressed him, he flashed a look that could be subtitled "End of Discussion. »

Versatile, innovative and controversial, Jerry Lewis leaves a legacy of laughs and charity work.

Jerry Lewis, the legendary comedian, actor, singer and philanthropist, has died at the age of 91.

Lewis is as well known for starring and directing films like The Nutty Professor, Cinderfella, and The Bellboy as he is for his marathon fundraising telethons on Us TV for Muscular Dystrophy. He first found fame with his legendary ten-year partnership with Dean Martin.

20 August 2017 12:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Legendary American comedian, actor, filmmaker and singer Jerry Lewis has passed away at his home in Las Vegas, aged 91.

Born in Newark, New Jersey in 1926, Lewis began his career as an entertainer in the 1940s and initially rose to prominence as part of the double-act Martin and Lewis with Dean Martin.

After finding success on the club circuit, radio and television, the duo made the switch to the big screen in 1949’s Mr Friend Irma, and followed that up with the sequel My Friend Irma Goes West. They would then go on to headline a total of sixteen movies together for producer Hal B. Wallis between 1951 and 1956, before going their separate ways.

Going solo, Lewis would soon begin writing and directing his own projects, including the likes of The Bellboy, The Ladies Man, The Errand Boy and The Nutty Professor, as well as the unreleased The Day the Clown Cried. »

The vitamin gives people such a strong lift that, according to Butcher, while filming “The Wrestler,” Mickey Rourke asked him, “Are you sure there’s nothing in this, I feel like I’m getting a lift?”
