    Jerry Lewis was on the Larry King show tonight plugging his new book about Dean Martin.

    At the end of the show, Jerry announced that next spring Paramount will be releasing a box set of all the Martin & Lewis films. This is great news! No further details are known. I wonder if it will include the public domain "At War with the Army" or the 2 recently released My Friend Irmas. Regardless, if this is really true, it is time for rejoicing in the streets. These movies have been long, long overdue for a DVD release.

    Great news.
    Four immediate titles for me would be,
    Living it Up
    Hollywood or Bust
    Three Ring Circus
    and Pardners

    Although Artists and Models looks OK on Laser, I would gladly re-invest in a possibly better quality DVD.

    I hope that they will also be available as singles.

    Breaking News: Paramount is releasing new films. That's my headline.

    My top films would be Sailor Beware and Jumping Jacks.

    Laaaaaaaady!

    That's great news!!!

    Now if only Columbia would release
    The Big Mouth, this would be
    a perfect world. [​IMG]

    There's also The Family Jewels
    and Three on a Couch, but I am
    unsure which studio(s) have the rights
    to those.

    Let's hope columbia will folow with HOOK LINE AND SINKER and BIG MOUTH, and Fox with WAY WAY OUT and HARDLY WORKING.

    I thought THREE ON THE COUCH was Paramount?

    I bought all the Jerry Lewis films last year
    but forgot exactly which ones I had after my
    top four favorites.

    Great news but Paramount still has some Lewis only titles I'd like to see like Sad Sack, Don't Give Up The Ship, Visit To A Small Planet, Geisha Boy and Rock-a-Bye Baby!

    The second link says Jerry was forced to finish the Clown movie with his own money. Perhaps everything was filmed, but a final cut wasn't finished.
