Using interviews with Jerry Lewis and many of his co-stars, this book analyzes his collaborative efforts with Dean Martin, his subsequent solo work, his writing and directorial careers, and later movies such as Hardly Working (1979) and The King of Comedy (1982).
Comprehensive data are provided for each of the films, with cast and production credits, studio, release date, and running time. Lewis’s own reflections on his work are included for many of the entries.
