    Great Balls of Fire singer or the actor?

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    An acquired taste - sometimes irritating, other times a genius - but a true legend!
    Time flies like the wind, fruit flies like bananas - go figure!

    Jerry Lewis films were often on TV when I was growing up, and I would always tune in. My favourites were the one where he worked in a department store and the one where he played a Martian. Very sorry to hear he has passed away. RIP Jerry.

    I've only really seen The Nutty Professor, but know he did plenty of other funny films.

    I best remember him in the film Visit To A Small Planet. R.I.P.
    Who cared about rules when you were young?

    I use to watch many of his films in the 70s.
    Then it all went quiet and I did not hear of him until a few years ago when I heard about a film he made in which he acted as a clown. The film was never aired. Why not?

    I heard it was never finished & what was made wasn't very good.
