The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of...

A lover of classic Hollywood cinema & the small screen. And all the glorious men and women of yesteryear that made us love the flickering screen...(and the massive amounts of coffee that allow me to watch & enjoy all of this into the wee hours) With yours truly as your host,

You were a great in comedy and you will be missed.
I can still remember seeing him on Johnny Carson as a child and laughing at his schtick.
Plus, he was from Philly and joked a lot about his experiences growing up there, ie: “In my neighborhood in Philly if you were seen wearing a dickie (ascot), you damn well better smell like Ben-Gay!” LMAO
A special place in my heart.

Never really been a western fan.
Never thought I’d say it, but Wagon Train was a damn good series!

Jerry, recipient of the Lifetime Achievement and presenter Carol Burnett at the ICG Publicists luncheon yesterday

A highlight of the annual luncheon on the Friday before the Oscars was the presentation of the Lifetime Achievement Award to actor, comedian, writer, producer and director Jerry Lewis by comedienne Carol Burnett.
Burnett said Lewis had inspired her love of comedy when she first saw him on the big screen as a teenager while attending Hollywood High School in 1949 in the movie My Friend Irma, which also starred his then-partner Dean Martin. She also praised Lewis for his work with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, helping raise over $2.6 billion.
“For someone who has been quite open about feelings for the press, to get anything from them is a miracle,” said Lewis, now 87, in his acceptance. “But I really know the importance of what you guys do. I respect that.
