    TCM is having a 2 night film festival in his honor

    Jerry Lewis' 90th Birthday
    The great Jerry Lewis himself will co-host these two evenings of his films. The comic actor/director/ producer/screenwriter, adored by French critics and audiences everywhere, is celebrated with movies representing four decades of his illustrious career.

    The first evening covers Lewis' filmic partnership with crooner Dean Martin and includes two TCM premieres, The Stooge (1952), about a troubled pair of vaudeville performers; and Artists and Models (1955), in which Dean plays a struggling artist and Jerry an aspiring children's author. Also screening are At War with the Army (1950), with the boys as bumbling soldiers; The Caddy (1953), with Jerry as a struggling golf instructor and Dean as a star client; and You're Never Too Young (1955), in which Jerry hilariously poses as an 11-year-old.

    The second evening looks at the "auteur" phase of the Lewis career and also features a pair of TCM premieres. Which Way to the Front? (1970) has Lewis producing, directing and starring in the story of a rich playboy who forms his own army. Cracking Up (aka Smorgasbord, 1983) is directed and co-written by Lewis and casts him as a psychiatric patient. Also showing are The Bellboy (1960), which was written, produced and directed by Lewis and features him in the leading role; Three on a Couch (1966), directed by Lewis, with Jerry as an artist in love with psychiatrist Janet Leigh; and Martin Scorsese's The King of Comedy (1983), starring Lewis as a talk-show host kidnapped by autograph hound Robert De Niro.


    I'll finally get to see The King of Comedy & see what all the hubbub is about :dontknow:


    My favorite JL movie is 'Rock-A-Bye-Baby'

    I loved Jerry's movies as a kid. "The Nutty Professor" was my #1 :)
    And "The King of Comedy" is on my top 20 list of movies I've ever seen.

    I still find it fascinating that there is a complete movie staring Jerry Lewis that is sitting in storage somewhere that he will never release. It used to be an Urban Legend but more recently he has been willing to talk about it. Howard has brought it up on the air before and only a handful of people have seen it. I guess the idea of a clown in a Concentration Camp leading kids to their death is something he doesn't want the public to ever see.

    I actually liked Eddie's "remake," but I considered it as a totally different movie. I'm the schmuck who actually cried in the theater when they were making fun of Sherman. And that family dinner scene is brilliant! Hercules, Hercules!! :)

    What time slot will "The Day The Clown Cried" be given by TCM during the "auteur" portion of Jerry's retrospective?

    2009. Jerry left in 2010. the telethon was cancelled in 2015.

    Monday, January 11, 2016
    SANTA MONICA, Calif. (KABC) --
    There has been a potential breakthrough in the treatment of ALS, health officials announced on Monday.
    Until now, there have been no proven methods to slow the progression of Lou Gehrig's disease, but a new treatment may help some patients regain movement and function.
    In the study, stem cells were collected from a patient's own bone marrow and then treated in a proprietary process.
    It was then injected into the patient's spinal fluid.
    "In some of the patients the disease not only stopped progressing, but there was a notable improvement in their neurological functions," ALS researcher Dr. Dimitrios Karussis said.
    Karussis and his Hadassah Medical Center colleagues in Israel said they are on the brink of something big.
    Researchers followed 26 patients for the past four years and 90 percent of patients experienced improvements in walking, talking and hand movement within a month of treatment and the results lasted for several months.
    Karussis' most compelling story is how well the new therapy helped a 22-year-old ALS patient.
    "The disease completely stopped progressing and he had a significant improvement in many of his functions including his ability to speak and his motor functions of the hands," Karussis said.
