No 9 never to u c i he always has time for his these achievements is Likely to help Jerry As much As his marriage and family have. Patli Calonica and Jerry Lewis met in a Down town Detroit theater where he was doing Panto mimes to records and she was singing with Ted fio Rita s hand. Love came to Jerry then Only 18, without his knowing what to do about it. The Best he could manage in the Way of introductions was to smear a lipstick message on her dressing room Mirror How about a Date to the approach was unorthodox but successful. He followed it up by leaving a pair of baby shoes on her Dresser with a Pink and Blue note asking How about filling and so they were married. Patti was a couple of years older but that was just As Well because she often had to be Mother and sister too. For example. Jerry s custom of sleeping with a loaded revolver beneath his Pillow would be disconcerting to any Bride. But Patti recognized the old fears behind the habit and stifling her own terror began to build up her husband s Confidence. Jerry eventually found a new Security and abandoned his revolver. True he hired a permanent guard and surrounded his Home with a burglar alarm that rivals fort Knox but these Are logical precautions for a wealthy family. Jerry s growing Assurance is reflected in his help for others. Few Young stars match his zest for Charity performances. He appeared in 15 benefits last year for instance. His efforts helped the muscular dystrophy association raise 515 million. Chairman of the Hollywood permanent charities committee he also raised funds for the red Cross Community Chest braille Institute and los an Geles children s orthopaedic Hospital. And there arc charitable acts behind the spot lights. 1 was on a set when Jerry received a re quest to visit an 11-year-old girl who had suffered severe Burns. To make the visit Jerry stopped production Early at a Cost equating that of his precious fall apart Dresser. I m almost glad i got the girl told him. I d never have met you As Jerry says what s Money Jerry has paid for his incessant activity. Not Long ago he suffered a nervous collapse yet he still tried to be a one Man merry go round. Only Patti s ultimatum either slow Down or i prevented Jerry from burning himself out at 30. He even turned to a Hobby. But typically it paralleled his professional ambitions. He took up Home movies using his neighbors As stars. The neighbors incidentally were such people As Janet Leigh Tony Curtis and others you d think would avoid cameras in their free hours. But movie making with Jerry is fun. For Jerry of course it is More than that. It is training for his ultimate goal directing. Don Mcguire directed the delicate but Jerry s next in dependent venture will be directed by that John Huston of the living room or. Lewis himself. More work More running sure. But Holly Wood s enjoyment in playing what makes Jerry in t half the fun that Jerry himself gets just from running. 6 family weekly. A 1957
