Archives from Lewis’s different speeches and quotes make us peep into his life, his success, his fall, his relationships and his way of combating with all afflictions, life was throwing on him.

Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis – 1951 – Comedy Routine “Bandstand Shenanigans”

A Comedian, Screen writer, Film Director, Film Producer, an actor and a philanthropic ‘Jerry Lewis’, portrayed his struggling days in such words.

From 1936 on, I have taken more falls than any other 20 comedians put together. From the time I was 21, I’ve taken them on everything from clay courts to cement to wood floors, coming off pianos, going out a two-story window, landing on Dean, falling into the rough. You do that and you’re gonna have problems.” – Jerry Lewis

Jerry featured in 61 movies during his 68 years of film career and played multi types of characters. Lewis took a bow with his class and style in “Cinderfella” dance.

Every man’s dream is to be able to sink into the arms of a woman without also falling into her hands.”- Jerry Lewis’

Last year, on his 90th birthday and on release of his last movie ‘Max Rose’ Jerry expressed his fear of death and losing his family.

Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis were a great comedy team who started out as a double act in America’s nightclubs. They first appeared together in Atlantic City’s 500 club in 1946, nightclub crooner Martin played the straight man and Lewis the mad man.

They made their first film, My Friend Ima, in 1949 and went on to record 16 more movies over the next seven years before their well publicised split in 1956. The most cited reason for their break up was Martin being bored with playing second fiddle to Lewis’ more credited role. Living It Up (1954) and You’re Never Too Young (1955) are rated by many cinema buffs as their best two movies.

Sadly, Dean Martin died in 1995 at the age of 78 but Jerry Lewis is still alive today at the ripe old age of 84. For old times sake I thought I’d bring the two back together again with a look at some of their great life quotes and sayings.

  • The Doc told me I had a dual personality. Then he lays an 82 dollar bill on me, so I give him 41 bucks and say, ‘Get the other 41 bucks from the other guy – Jerry Lewis
  • You’re not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on – Dean Martin
  • I get paid for what most kids get punished for – Jerry Lewis
  • I feel sorry for people who don’t drink. They wake up in the morning and that’s the best they’re going to feel all day – Dean Martin
  • Every man’s dream is to be able to sink into the arms of a woman without also falling into her hands – Jerry Lewis
  • I’ve got seven kids. The three words you hear most around my house are ‘hello,’ ‘goodbye,’ and ‘I’m pregnant’ – Dean Martin
  • Dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die today – Jerry Lewis
  • There’s a statue of Jimmy Stewart in the Hollywood Wax Museum, and the statue talks better than he does – Dean Martin

I think you’ll agree my bringing Dean and Jerry back together again has been worthwhile. They were a great team and their humour reached far beyond the film studios.

That’s My Boy (1951) starring Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis

In That’s My Boy, Jerry Lewis plays the part of “Junior” Jackson, a non-athlete who lives in the shadow of his father’s college football days — and his father plans to relive his glory days through his son, Junior, whether Junior wants to or not.Dean Martin plays the part of  Bill Baker, a natural athlete who would likely be All-American.  If he could only afford to attend college

Junior’s father decides to solve his problem by paying for Bill’s college, with the condition that Bill rooms with Junior, and tutors him on the field.  A complication arises when both of them begin to fall in love with the same girl … beautiful co-ed Terry Howard (Marion Marshall), who agrees to help build up Junior’s confidence.

However, when Junior confides to Bill that he intends to marry Terry, a guilt-ridden Bill gets drunk and makes a scene at Terry’s dorm. As a result, he is expelled just before the big game. When Junior realizes that Bill and Terry love each other, he is determined to make things right.  He goes on to win the big game, leading to his father shouting from the bleachers, “That’s my boy!”

It’s a film that’s both funny and heart-touching, both for those of us with sons and those of us with fathers — I recommend it.

That’s My Boy is available on DVD on the Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis Collection Volume 1.
