Entertainment icon Jerry Lewis was far more than a clown.
He was also a groundbreaking filmmaker whose unquenchable drive and curiosity led him to write, produce, stage and direct many of the films he appeared in. While many American critics and the cultural elite rejected his visual gags, pantomime sketches and signature slapstick humor, the masses loved his comedy, and others, especially the French, recognized him as a true auteur.
