Just watched HOOK, LINE AND SINKER- very funny, kitschy, what wild and crazy wallpaper and Jerry's hair combing sequence should be put in a time capsule and sent into space- beautiful, wonderful Jerry!

And a belated Happy Birthday to Mr. Lewis,(humanitarian, actor, singer, dancer, director, producer) who said in his autobiography- Jerry Lewis In Person- "The laugh. It's carried me around the globe to places where millions of people are starving for laughter. Where a pratfall or a silly joke is all that it takes to make them forget that their bellies are empty..." and that actually answered a question I've had about the longevity of comedians. Jerry Lewis is a hero to many and on my shortlist with another very wise person, Janusz Korczak, who wrote the Children's Bill of Rights. Thanks TCM for a day with Jerry Lewis!

I'm so glad others like "Cinderfella". I never get tired of watching it and Mr. Ed Wynn was terrific as the fairy godfather. Do both of you burst out laughing when Cinderella wants to jump on Fella? Jerry amazes me all the time in the dance segment going down the stairs so swiftly.

I've always been a Jerry Lewis fan. I seen Cinderfella at the Cinema when I was a kid.And I have been an avid fan ever since.The Nutty Professor is my personal favorite.

You're not alone! I liked "Cinderfella". I've seen it probably five or six times. Funny movie!

I'm probably the only one here that likes "Cinderfella" but it's not of the same caliber as the other titles mentioned. Have fun watching his films.

I always thought The Bellboy (1960 I think) in B/W, was one of Jerry Lewis' best. It was a departure from his usual screen character mainly because, as the bellboy, he never spoke a word in the film. However, if I remember correctly, there was a scene where Jerry Lewis the celebrity showed up and spoke some lines. He played a dual role briefly, for that one scene. But all the comedy was sight gags and they are funny.

I highly recommend the Jerry Lewis movies directed by Frank Tashlin. They had a wonderful collaboration on such films as "Rock A Bye Baby," "It's Only Money," "Who's Minding the Store?" and "The Disorderly Orderly." Maybe you can find VHS tapes of these on Ebay.

I haven't seen it in years, but I remember liking *The Ladies Man* (1961) better than *The Nutty Professor* .

I watched "The Nutty Professor" with Jerry Lewis a couple a weeks ago and loved it! Can anyone recommend another Jerry Lewis film that is just as good?
