l remember going to see Pardners, at the old Highett picture theatre, back when every suburb had it’s own cinema. l was about 5 or perhaps 6 at the time, l loved it. l watched it again on Youtube a couple of months ago, it is still good. So l watched a couple more Lewis & Martin efforts.
My fave Lewis picture is one where he has a supporting role to Oliver Platt who plays his son, an unfunny comedian, in search of material and himself in “Funnybones.”
Jim Carey based much of his comedy on the physical slapstick of Lewis. It wasn’t just the facial expressions either, he could move well also, and his dance steps were nothing short of sensational.
