    He's a legend and was one of a kind for sure.

    Jerry lewis dead at 91

    http://www.tmz.com/2017/08/20/jerry-lewis-dead-at-91/

    known more for his telethon and other stuff

    but many forget how influential he was as a director and what advances he made. He was one of the first directors to use instant playback when he shot a scene and many advancements in how a movie was filmed

    true legend and icon

    Not the nicest person in the world, but a true legend & gotta love how hard he worked for "Jerry's Kids".

    RIP Legend.

    Equal parts annoying and brilliantly funny.

    I'll always favor Dino, but Jerry was still one of the greats.

    RIP

    My dad was a musician and worked with him briefly in the early 70's.....said he did not treat those under him very well. You could see little hints of it every once in a while during the telethons, when he would act somewhat disrespectful towards his bandleader & or others on the show.

    I chatted with the guys who I know who worked with him and they more or less said --if you did not know your que or what you were suppose to do--you got the bulls horns. They said he was a perfectionist who settled for nothing short. No matter what he did

    It is bad. A copy was on YouTube for about 4 hours a few years ago and it is unwatchable

    They say that his perfectionist ways were a big part of what broke him and Dean Martin up.

    Dean wanted to just relax and work when needed whereas Jerry was a workaholic and perfectionist. Jerry always wanted to do more and more and become the biggest thing ever. He pretty much took over the act. I could imagine that after a while their styles clashed.

    There was also the jealousy as well since at the time Jerry was out to be the main star and Dean was just the straight man sidekick.

    It's a shame really what happened there.

    I found out today that my brother-in-law's grandparents would host parties in Hollywood and Dean and Jerry would go all the time. Apparently was a producer in Hollywood in the 40's and 50's.

    Jerry Lewis was basically Krusty the Clown. That was Jerry - sunshine on the screen, a dark cloud in real life.

    He and Lou Reed are a couple of guys I really admire, but I'd probably pee my pants if I were ever in the same room with them. They were both harsh.

    My thinking is that the kids didn't treat him well as they got older and were dismissive of him, ignoring him, blaming him for their woes etc...They got what they deserved. Nothing.
