El legendario Jerry Lewis se sincera en un reciente documental dirigido por Gregg Barson, Method of Madness of Jerry Lewis, acerca de su trabajo en El Rey de la Comedia (1983), la irritante obra maestra scorsesiana:
"I got more critical acclaim from that film than I did for any of the work that I did in my whole life. Critics acclaiming, acclaiming, and I’m thinking to myself, 'You schmuck, do you realize I showed up and I just read the words and went home?' I mean, I didn’t have to do anything, I had to be me."
Tan lindo, Lewis.
