The video's name is ambiguous so that I don't get a copyright strike, even being unlisted and not public on YouTube. I recorded it with my laptop facing my tv, since I don't have DVR or a recording method directly on the tv. So it's not high quality.
Thanks for posting . Do you have any info about this other movie he was suppossed to do before he was hospitalized? Like who was directing...what was he going to play ...and who was also cast (if anyone)?
I've looked for info on this film, and nothing comes up. I hadn't known the title of the film, until this documentary. Info before this has all been very obscure about what project he was going to film. I know he was also planning a sort of Martin and Lewis story for Broadway.
I think it's strange how they (the movie critics) contradict themselves. Jerry Lewis might have been hard to work with, but I reacted when Rick Saphire said on the show that Jerry didn't understand the audience changed and that his humor was out of style. Well, he made "Boeing Boeing" right in the middle of his successful films and that one was not like his previous ones. It had more adult themed humor and Jerry is pretty much the straight man thinking Tony Curtis' character is out of his mind. The movie is hilarious and so underrated. Jerry tried something new, but it didn't seem that it got the recognition it deserved.
When they talked about Max Rose, James Kaplan said (in reference to the critics) that the role was too much unlike the real Jerry Lewis. Um, yes, he's an actor, it's what they do. When he recieved the script and read it, he loved it and was determined to play that part.
It's not that Jerry didn't want to or couldn't try different things, because he did more than a few times, but yet it wasn't recognized as being good enough.
