ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Comic actor Jerry Lewis was immortalized in cement Saturday (April 12), in a hands and feet ceremony in the courtyard of the famed Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Lewis joins the likes of legendary Hollywood celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and John Wayne, who have all left their imprint in cement at the tinseltown tourist hotspot, as well as comic actors Groucho Marx, Bob Hope, and Abbot and Costello. The 88-year-old star of "The Nutty Professor" proved he still had his comic genius as he had the audience in stitches during his remarks, when he played a stagehand for some laughs. Lewis's hand and foot print ceremony coincides with the 2014 TCM Classic Film Festival, which is honoring his contributions to film.
