Method to the Madness of Jerry Lewis

The one-time ‘Nutty Professor’ just wants to be loved. Is that so wrong? Well, now that you mentioned it ...


Documentary

Rod Lott
There's a long-standing joke about Jerry Lewis being loved by the French, and to paraphrase The Simpsons, it’s funny ’cuz it’s true. We even see the adulation — then, now — in Method to the Madness of Jerry Lewis, a two-hour documentary about the man whom one celebrity admirer calls “The Beatles of movie comedy.”

The Kentucky Fried Movie

“I'm not wearing any pants. Film at 11.”


Comedy

Rod Lott
John Landis and the team of David Zucker/Jim Abrahams/Jerry Zucker may have made better movies directly afterward (National Lampoon's Animal House and Airplane!, respectively), but that's not to deny 1977's The Kentucky Fried Movie its rightful place in the all-time comedy canon. A career-launcher for all four, the scrappy Sketch Movie That Could holds up splendidly — in laughs, not fashions — in its Blu-ray debut.

The art knight rises

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s the Istvan Gallery’s latest exhibition celebrating comic books!


Visual Arts

Louis Fowler
Hot on the well-pixelated heels of its last exhibition, the video game-themed Art of Bits/Bits of Art, the Istvan Gallery once again finds itself in geeky territory with its latest art show, The Art of the Comic Book. For gallery owner and curator Stephen Kovash, who learned to draw from comic books, it’s a chance to give Oklahoma City a new perspective on what has long been considered low-brow art by outsiders.
