    I know it isn't considered one of his best, but for me it's Cracking Up. I caught it on Comedy Central when I was a kid, watched it at least a dozen times. Should get it on DVD, haven't seen it in ages.



    Haven't seen many of his other movies, so looking for some recommendations.

    Jerry made two French films in 1983. He has stated that as long as he is alive, they will never be released in the US. Here is the trailer for one of them.

    I love reality Jerry Lewis. When he's serious and pompous.

    Just saw it this past year, and I liked it. Only movie I've seen of his. WAY better than the Murphy one. Lewis played such a cool customer as his alter ego. Kind of a dick, but he seemed like such a Rat Pack fit in. :snicker:

    if you want to see the real, unadulterated Jerry Lewis go to YouTube & download every talk show appearance they currently have up.
    I grabbed the last episode of Jerry's notorious LIVE late night Saturday night talk show from 1963.
    Maybe I should post it here.
    Your jaw will hit the top of your boots.

    There are also all of those wonderful telethon moments posted there that are just magnificent - not in a "look -Jerry's being an asshole again" kind of way.
    They're sweet and they're funny.

    Underrated guy.

    Fuck it.
    Let's see if this fits:

    Nutty Professor far and away his best work. Just a million perfects. The DVD commentary with him and Steve Lawrence is also great.
