RIP from a huge fan, thanks for the laughs.
 

Jerry Lewis, the comedian and filmmaker who was adored by many, disdained by others, but unquestionably a defining figure of American entertainment in the 20th century, died on Sunday morning at his home in Las Vegas. He was 91.
His death was confirmed by his publicist, Candi Cazau.
Mr. Lewis knew success in movies, on television, in nightclubs, on the Broadway stage and in the university lecture hall. His career had its ups and downs, but when it was at its zenith there were few stars any bigger. And he got there remarkably quickly.

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy

:rip: Jerry Lewis....

 

Talk about lots of fun laughter with Jerry's movies! 

 

To name a few of my favorites:
 
Disorderly Orderly
The Geisha Boy
The Bellboy
The Ladies Man
 
My sisters and I would laugh ourselves silly! He is one of a kind and he'll stay alive in my happy memories.
 
May his wife find peace at this difficult time.

Oh rats....for us non-Aussies...the video message is:  The uploader has not made this video available in your country.

 

As we miss out, please keep the laughter at a minimum!  :hysterical:
