Turner Classic Movies said it will run a film tribute to comedian Jerry Lewis on Labor Day, Sept. 4, in honor of the nearly 50 years the late comic genius spent hosting The Jerry Lewis MDA Labor Day Telethon.
Lewis died Aug. 20 at the age of 91 and experienced success across all media – movies, television, radio, nightclubs and on Broadway -- from his early days with partner Dean Martin, to his solo career writing, producing and directing many of his own films. TCM will air the following movies in tribute to the artist (all times are Eastern):
