Jerry Lewis is one of the very best comedians I have ever had the privilege to watch. I was a very young girl at the time when I first watched a movie with Mr. Lewis in it and he made me laugh. As a child, your not expecting a grown man to act so goofy and seeing this for the very first time, I couldn't help to laugh. I can still remember scrolling through the channels and if I seen a movie with Mr. Lewis or Dean Martin, I would rest on that channel hoping that I hadn't missed much of the movie.

Mr. Lewis did have a partner for many films. As I mentioned earlier, I would rest on channels where Dean Martin was starring in a movie and that was because where you seen Dean, you were likely to see Jerry. July of 1946, Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin began their partnership with each other on stage and only a few years later (1949), they began making movies together.

Although I am honoring Mr. Lewis, I am sure that this will go un-noticed by him. Jerry Lewis has been honored by many in the past. In 1977, he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Wisconsin's congressman, Les Aspin. In 1971, he received the Murry Green Award for Community Service, 1978 he received the Jefferson Award, 1980 he was also awarded the Humphrey Humanitarian Award, and in 1984 Neal Pike Prize for Service to the Handicapped. The list of awards, medals and prizes continues as he is very acknowledged, honored and respected.

Jerry Lewis is a stage performer, comedian, actor, singer, director, University Professor, humanitarian and father. Mr. Lewis is a man that makes a mark on the world and the world is a better place with him in it. His contributions to the entirety of this world is what defines his success as a mere man for not many would even consider trying to achieve the things Mr. Lewis has.

Mr. Jerry Lewis, may you live on for a multitude of years to come. Because of your efforts and hard work, mankind has benefited greatly in so very many ways.

One last comment before I close. The most memorable Jerry Lewis movie I had watched, Hook, Line & Sinker. Although it would make a great addition to any movie collection, it seems that particular movie is unavailable to purchase. Might I suggest that you contact Columbia Pictures and ask that they make this film available on dvd..
