Jerry Lewis will always be remembered for his MDA Telethons which ran for many, many years, but movie fans will also remember him for some pretty comical movies.
Lewis starred in such gems as "Visit To A Small Planet", "Pardners" and "The Nutty Professor" and many more. In some comedies he co-starred with Dean Martin and the two just clicked. It was movie magic much like Abbott and Costello.
The movie that introduced me to Lewis was "The Sad Sack" from 1957. One of the last comedic geniuses has died. Lewis passed away in Las Vegas at the age of 91.
