Quentin Tarantino To Host 4-Film Jerry Lewis Tribute On Saturday

The Oscar-winning filmmaker is raiding his personal collection for a Jerry Lewis tribute this weekend, dusting off 35mm prints of four of the actor’s films. Quentin Tarantino will host the screenings at the New Beverly Movie, the LA movie house he bought in 2007 to keep the property from being redeveloped. The Lewis marathon starts at 10 AM Saturday with Don’t Give Up The Ship (1959), followed by Boeing, Boeing (1965) at noon, At War With The Army (1950) at 2 and Hollywood Or Bust (1956) at 4. The screenings, which are free and open to the public, coincide with a Lewis tribute at this week’s TCM Classic Films Festival, which includes the actor and humanitarian — who Tarantino called “a Hollywood treasure” — putting his hand and footprints in concrete at the TCL Chinese Theatre.
