Big bummer for me. Loved his movies growing up.
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.
We were just chatting last night about him...Celebs over 90 years old....
Made me laugh a lot at a young age....SAD....RIP.
Some guys want to grow up to be a fireman, policeman or doctor. As for me..... Buddy Love.
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.
You can't help but smile when you hear his name.
Will live for ever in my mind and DVD collection
R.I.P. goofy one
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.
Quoted from vicjw66:

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