New York Giants star Frank Gifford doubled for Lewis in the football scenes of the 1951 movie "That's My Boy".

Actor Jim Carrey, whose comedy style was strongly influenced by Jerry Lewis, said: "That fool was no dummy".

"I was fortunate to have seen him a few times over the past couple of years".

Please SHARE and honor the iconic, once-in-a-lifetime entertainer Jerry Lewis! "I can't believe I got to meet him and spend time with him". "You think about getting old, but when you get there it's not what you thought it would be".

Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea, Premier League 2017-18, live score, live commentary
The top two teams from last season will face off as Tottenham take on Chelsea at the English home of football, Wembley Stadium. Former Tottenham midfielder Murphy believes Spurs should consider a £50m offer for the 27-year-old left-back.

Jerry Lewis is survived by his wife SanDee, daughter, Danielle, and sons Gary, Christopher, Anthony, Ronald, and Scott. "And he was a friend", actor Robert De Niro said in a statement.

The 1980s were good for Lewis in another way: he starred in Martin Scorsese's film The King of NY, producing some of his finest work.

He was just 20 when his pairing with Dean Martin made them stars and he went on to make films such as The Bellboy and The Nutty Professor.

He wrote: "As a child I LIVED for his movies".

"And when you fall in love with something, you make it far better than it is". His last film was 2016 drama Max Rose.

In 1995, he tried his hand at theater, making his Broadway debut in a revival of Guys and Dolls, taking over for Victor Garber in the role of Mr. Applegate (the Devil in disguise).

Lewis had suffered from several health issues over the years, beginning with a back injury in 1965. Lewis would continue to appear in motion pictures throughout the 1960s, most notably The Nutty Professor and Rock-a-Bye Your Baby.

Born Joseph Levitch in Newark, New Jersey, Lewis began his show business career with a "record-singer" act that was considered so bad that the Atlantic City club where he was playing fired him. It was carried by only one NY television station and raised more than $1 million.

One of their most beloved films was Sailor Beware (1952), which bore the legendary boxing scene between Lewis and his much more skilled opponent.
