The Day The Clown Was Born

In a mad world, only the idiots are kings. And this is my favorite moment from Jerry Lewis’s 1960 directorial debut, THE BELLBOY, an almost silent film featuring Lewis as the titular screw-up. Here he makes a cameo as himself, a movie star persona with an entourage. At 3:32 in the clip, the scene becomes Art, and reveals something piercing and genuine about Jerry’s show business world. Bon anniversaire Monsieur Lewis!
