In Memory of
Jerry Lewis 

One of the last great figures of my childhood is gone. Lewis was my favorite comedic genius. I don't care much for the movies he made with Dean Martin, and I can't stand any of  his movies made after 68. I don't know why his humor went so sour at least, according to my tastes.

My favorites are The Bellboy, The Errand Boy, and the Disorderly orderly. Also ampomg the best are Cemerfella, TheNuttie Professor, and The Ladiesman, Visit to a small Planet, The Patsy.
