RIP Jerry Lewis, 91

RIP Jerry Lewis, 91

I saw the enjoyable The King of Comedy in the 1990s, a recommendation of my movie bible Cult Movie Stars.

I know French film criticism of the 1960s was crazy about him.

The reason for this infatuation was explained in the book Why the French Love Jerry Lewis.

Well, Lewis died.

I researched him anew.

I found the movie above: Slapstick of Another Kind.

It’s the second Kurt Vonnegut film adaptation I see.

The first was Breakfast of Champions[1] starring Bruce Willis.

Both are bad films.

I enjoyed both films.
