          Jerry Lewis has just passed away at age 91.  He was the last living major comedian I can think of that started in that pre television film comedy era that The Three Stooges belonged to, though chronologically Lewis was on the tail end of it and certainly had a successful career far beyond.  I think a thread is called for and I know there are fans on this board.  My favorite film of Jerry's based on what I've seen is THE BELLBOY.  I always thought physical comedy was his strong point, and as a silent character in this film, he got to do plenty of it.

  • Doing further research, perhaps with the advent of television is when he started if we're counting celluloid.  Oh well, still the last of a bygone era.

  • Hello everybody!
    Just to remember that Joe Besser and Kenneth MacDonald worked with Jerry in The Errand Boy.

  • When did he host his last telethon? I used to look forward to seeing it on Labor Day weekend.

    Lewis' last appearance on the telethon was in 2010. From what it sounds like, this wasn't his decision, although his health was probably a contributing factor.
