I am a huge Jerry fan! I have his dvd collection "The Ultimate Jerry Collection!" If you dont know what I am talking about, it is a 5 disc collection with two movies each in 5 plastic folders. The movies are..
Delicate Delinquent, The Bellboy, Cinderfella, The Ladies Man, The Errand Boy, Nutty Professor, The Patsy, Disorderly Orderly, The Family Jewels and The Stooge w/ Dean.
They have special features with lost scenes, bloopers, original teasers, screen tests, and a few of them have commentary where Jerry watches them with singer, Steve Lawrence. It is interesting to hear Jerry criticize himself in certain places.
My favorite has to be The Patsy. When the different scenes are shown back to back where he is training to become a star, I about fall over laughing! Also, the scene on Teenage Dancetime where he lipsyncs "I Lost My Heart At A Drive-In Movie" is flat out belly busting!
I have never really liked the Martin-Lewis movies only because I dont like the "younger" Jerry. I hated the way he pursed his lips and got real whiny. He hit his stride when he went solo and could do his own films.
By the way, I actually have "Cracking Up" on VHS. LOL!
