    Thanks, Ron - as I said, it sure didn't seem like a boot. I actually didn't have a link in the post - I just said if you search the title on eBay you'll find the dealer I got it from - who also had The Geisha Boy at a fairly reasonable cost. The latter is one of my favorite Lewis films.

    Atleast Four of those are actually on bluray from Olive Films now.
    Still too many to available on any format including Hook Line and sinker and all the movies that were in the two paramount sets from about five years ago.
    I'm going to start ordering the Olive film releases as they are going for about $20 on Amazon.
    Since the Jazz Singer was released I thought more of his others would start popping up.

    Artists and Models was just a added to Netflix streaming and the HD stream looks great.
    Also a few of these missing Lewis films are also there.
    The Sad Sack, The Delinquints, Don't Give Up the Ship and Its Only Money, Who's Minding the Store .
    Also something g called Fight For Life with Morgan Freeman that looks like it may have been made for TV, not sure.

    Paramount Pictures Home Entertainment did a tremendous job when it personally released the Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis catalogue of films at great prices. Unfortunately they are now in the hands of another DVD-Bluray distributor and cost an arm-and-a-leg.
    I would love to get that latest batch especially THE GEISHA BOY (1958) in Blu-ray but at $25 a piece no way. I must be shamefully spoiled on the more reasonable pricing on these.
    I guess Paramount just wasn't making enough of a profit on the Jerry Lewis franchise which is unfortunate.

    Why do you think the price is $25.00? You can buy it on-line for $14.43.

    The Martin & Lewis Collections have been recently re-released through Warner Archive Collection at more reasonable prices.

    I spun my DVD of Artists & Models last week. Great film, great DVD, and would make a great blu-ray through the Warner Archive.

    I also spun 3 Ring Circus. Not a great film but as it is in VistaVision would make a stunning blu-ray.

    I thought 3 Ring Circus was caught up in rights problems.

    Both volumes of the Martin and Lewis collection go for ridiculous prices on Amazon, but somehow I managed to pick up both at FYE for about $55 used - and that's the total amount together. Talk about a deal!

    Surprised that there's no mention here of the two films that introduced Martin & Lewis to the public:

    My Friend Irma (1948)

    My Friend Irma Goes West (1949)


    Both are legitimately available on well-produced DVD (which I have) and I'm hoping we'll soon see a nice Blu release.

    Hi everyone! Happy New Year! It's been awhile but I had to throw this out there as I got "The Nutty Professor" on Bluray for Christmas.I asked my wife to get me the two Martin Lewis DVD sets for Valentine's Day.In the meantime I'm chomping at the bit for any possible Jerry Lewis Bluray box sets for 2015 or any other titles that are expected to come out this year.I saw Mr. Lewis on Jimmy Fallon last year but I don't think they talked about any more releases. Any predictions for 2015?
