The Nutty Professor and The Bellboy had me in stitches, and can still do it to me today. I continued to laugh at Jerry through most of the 1960s. In the late 60s and 70s, as he moved away from filmmaking into his iconic role of telethon toastmaster, he became a sober, more serious popular figure that I never quite accepted. But that change was what made him a true individual who followed what he wanted for his life, and for his career. Can’t blame anyone for that. After all, he already perfected his comedian, and that’s worth remembering in itself.
