Dean and Me: A Love Story
by Jerry Lewis and James Kaplan, a review from The New Republic by David Thomson.
"Andrew Sarris once said of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis that they possessed 'incomparable incompatability.' He remembered the night they chased Hope and Crosby off the stage as 'rotting royalty being overthrown by the new Zanies.' And in those days, when their humor bristled with wordplay and surrealism as well as slapstick, they were like be-bop dismissing swing. It is still the case that the best of their TV show, The Colgate Comedy Hour, is as bracing as the new jazz. Still, were they lovable?" Read the entire New Republic review.
