Fast reading book with some surprising back ground information about both Jerry and Dean.
Everything is from Jerry's viewpoint, but he is
not guilty of condemning Dean. In fact he wrote
very favorably about Dean.
This highly readable book recalls the phenomenon of the Jerry Lewis-Dean Martin pairing, from Lewis's perspective. It takes the reader from the very beginnings of their partnership, through the pinnacle of their success as show business's most outrageous duo, to their eventual parting (and later reconcilliation on a personal basis). The saga is vividly described, and though it had a co-writer, it bears evidence of Lewis's characteristic hubris and underlying sentimental nature. For those interested in the entertainment arena, it is a must.
This was a wonderful romp through Dean and Jerry's years together, the good and the bad. You really get a feeling for how they grew to love each other and the un explainable magic they had by just being together performing. I never totally understood their breakup, neither did the world, and even after their breakup the distant love they still had for each other. It even recounts the instant when Dean walked onto the Telethon one year (I saw that as a child and even then understood the significance of the encounter). The book was touching, warm and fuzzy, and a must read if you ever got touched by any of these two's performances. It was magic. In comedy teams they were one of the greatest, and good wholesame entertainment. I throughly enjoyed every part of the book.
