    Terrible news. He entertained and did a lot of good with his telethons.

    Rest In Peace. Loved his movies and this must be what growing old means most people that were part of my youth have left us.

    The last of the "Rat Pack". A very exciting time in Vegas history.

    Dean Martin was in the Rat Pack, not Jerry Lewis. They'd gone their separate ways 4 - 5 years before.

    Great movie

    #17 1 year ago

    When I was a kid in NY, there were a few weeks every year I would drop whatever I was doing to watch WABC's 4:30 movie. Martin and Lewis week was one of the best. It's really amazing how many people have never seen one of their movies. Great stuff.

    #18 1 year ago

    Heart of gold. Definitely one of the great ones.

    Must See ....

    Quoted from Buzz:

    Maybe back in the day, but he was a rude MF later in life. Check out any of his recent interviews.

    Still - you can't deny what he did for special need awareness.

    #26 1 year ago

    he was still alive?

    #27 1 year ago

    You can't help but smile when you hear his name.

    And, he achieved that while performing as grandpa on the Munsters..incredible.

    When I was a kid, we all went to the movies to see The Nutty Professor with a "guest appearance" by Jerry Lewis. About halfway through the movie they stopped the film and Jerry Lewis came out on stage and did a 10 minute routine. Very funny high energy stuff! Once the crowd of kids calmed down (Saturday matinee) they were able to show the rest of the movie. We talked about it for weeks after.

    Maybe now that he's dead, they will finally release that movie where he plays a clown in a nazi concentration camp whose job is to entertain and then lead the little kids into the gas chambers. Only a handful of people have seen the film. Supposedly it missed the mark. Can't imagine why.

    Not totally accurate. When he realized what he did, he insisted staying with the kids, to the end.
