I am all about classic movies and television, old Hollywood, those glamorous men and women of yesteryear. I love camp and kitsch and humor (tasteful and blue). I am an old soul living in another era in spirit. I LOVE MUSIC. I have an especially soft spot in my heart for JERRY LEWIS in every medium he has ventured (and reigned). JL's contributions to music make me so HAPPY and I love collecting them! I could look at pictures of his (and pictures of him) all day. I absolutely LOVE JERRY LEWIS (always have)... I am a virtual treasure trove of useless information--but titillated by it all the same.... I also dig some modern celebrities and popular culture--but my heart belongs to the past. I do not own, or claim to own any of the photos (except for the ones I specifically say that I took, or own).

Well, if a man with an ulcer and a splinter in his finger and a nail in his foot was then struck by lightning, if you could say that man was not hurt, then yes, you could say I’m not hurt.

"How does he feel about his return to the limelight? ‘It’s annoying the shit out of me!’ he says with a twinkle in his eye.”

A telling new interview of JL at 88, in The Hollywood Reporter.


“By the time Jerry Lewis co-wrote, co-produced, directed, and starred in The Nutty Professor in 1963, he’d been acting in movies for nearly 15 years, and had worked during that stretch with bright comedy minds like Norman Taurog and Frank Tashlin. But Lewis had only been a director himself since 1960. The Nutty Professor was Lewis’ fourth film behind the camera, and while the three pictures that preceded it are frequently brilliant, The Nutty Professor best reveals what Lewis picked up from Tashlin’s anything-for-a-gag philosophy, as well as what Lewis absorbed from people like Charlie Chaplin and Jacques Tati, who were both great film comedians and visual stylists. Working with his longtime collaborator Bill Richmond, Lewis constructed one of his sturdiest scripts in The Nutty Professor, and he wasted scarcely a minute of it.”

Newly released in a 50th-anniversary Blu-ray format, one of Jerry Lewis’ funniest movies is named Essential Retro. Read the full review.
