I wish I was as "Mad" and had the ability to make the world a better, more happy, place -- as Mr. Lewis keeps managing to do.
I have always had a special place in my heart, that would never have been filled, had Jerry not existed. This film montage of an exceptional life, lived spreading childlike wonder, is as close as I've come to seeing this exceptional human being and his many faces. I wish I could kiss him on both cheeks (on his face) and stare into his eyes to convey the gratitude I feel for being one of the millions of people who have received his gift of exuberance and laughs. It's gratifying to know that I'm not the only one who's life was changed by him; JFK, Spielberg, Woody Harrelson, Seinfeld -- to name a few.
I had an unfortunately dreary childhood that was immeasurably uplifted by consummate entertainers, Jerry Lewis being the primary one. And he not only doled out happiness, he invested himself into the work of the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
I can't wait to see him in the new film "Max Rose", hopefully being released in 2013. Still a creative volcano of imagination in his 80's, with more to give us all.
If you think you know about him, or if you are just being introduced to him(hard to believe), you'll enjoy this brand new mirror on his insatiably dynamic Madness.
My highest Recommendation!
