SOUNDBITE: Jerry Lewis, actor, saying (English): "There is some funny stuff there. But when you open the box the first thing you'll see are the phony phone calls, being a person.

SOUNDBITE: Jerry Lewis, actor, saying (English): "The beginning, the middle and the end. I wouldn't pick out any one thing. It was a love affair with every frame."
