    Always hungry for more Jerry Lewis
    on DVD. Thank Goodness for Paramount
    we got a huge handful of the very best
    of his catalog.

    Add to the above list The Big Mouth,
    one of my favorite Lewis films from the
    Columbia library.

    I'll send a letter off to my contact at
    Columbia later today and see if we can nudge
    that title into consideration. After all,
    Columbia already released Don't Raise
    The Bridge....

    Thanks guys. Hopefully Rock-a-Bye Baby (1958), Way... Way Out (1966) (Jerry with Connie Stevens made a great Male/Female team), Who's Minding the Store? (1963) (co-starring Jill St. John, John McGiver and Agnes Moorehead) will come out real soon as they are my top favorites of Jerry Lewis.

    Does anyone think The Day the Clown Cried will ever be released in any form? Jerry Lewis doesn't want this viewed by anyone so I doubt it will ever be released.

    One i really enjoy is "Hook, Line, and Sinker". I think this movie came out in 1969? I would love to see it released on Dvd someday.

    Actually we need to shake the trees at Parammount. Even with the ten they released, they have a long way to go.
    You've got Who's Minding the Store and Don't Give Up the Ship to name a couple of Jerry Lewis' solo efforts as well as the entire Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis collection sans 1.

    Anyone know if the first 'wave' of Jerry DVDs did well enough to warrant more releases?

    After such moronic tripe as HOOK LINE AND STINKER and DON'T LOWER THE BRIDGE... etc. Lewis is concerned about THE DAY THE CLOWN CRIED being seen by the public? I find that hilarious.

    I think it's the subject matter(a clown leading Jewish children to the gas chamber) more than the quality of the film that Lewis has problems with. Of course I can't say for sure as very few people have actually seen the movie.

    Scared Stiff (1953)is the one I want most, I never bought any of these, money woes. Have they put the ones out in a box? I would prefer to buy them in a box.

    Tory,I'm sure you want the Jerry Lewis version "Sared Stiff" most. But if your interested in the story nearly as much, Bob Hope and Paulette Goddard did an excellent version of it first (1940) titled "The Ghost Breakers".
