Jerry Lewis gives a typing lesson

Back in the day, I was mad about Jerry Lewis and his movies.

I'm talking when I was a boy in the 50s and 60s.

I saw all his movies more than once, some many times: they hit some wonderful sweet spot.

Even now I can do that crazy walk he'd break into for no apparent reason: it cracks people up even though they have no idea I'm imitating him.


The segment up top is from "Who's Minding The Store?," which came out in 1963.

Even though he's pretty much forgotten in the U.S., in France he's considered a great artist on par with Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton.
