Preferred Dean Martin
May he rest RIP. I didn't care for his type of comedy but still sad when someone dies that I knew.
It is sad that being the father of Jerry’s kids and each year raised money for Muscular Dystrophy and when he found there was a cure the MD They fired him and his staff go and told them they cannot tell anyone the reason.
Well he had a good long life and lived it well and helped a lot of people...now may he rest in peace.
The man definitely gave a damn, & he was an excellent actor.
Nyaa Nyaa Nyaa Fat Lady
Sorry @Martin Alonzo ..I didn't quite understand that. It's probably just me being dense but I just didn't get what you were saying...
I just saw that JL had died when I got home this evening... I was never a fan, and like CC I don't care for slapstick comedy , but I hope he lived a happy life and didn't suffer at the end... may he R.I.P with the rest of his buddies in the rat pack!!
Holly Dr. Wallach went to Jerry and showed him the cause and cure for MD and he took it to the MD society and they fired him but his contract had a gag order in it so he could not tell the truth and it is sad he took it to his grave.
OMG!!! Really?? Why would they do that ?...do you think it's all to do with Big Pharma silencing people?
That is right you can not make money on diseases that are curable
From what little research I did on the subject, now the goal is to stop MS entirely. The disease can be treated successfully, but of course at great expense. Given that there are significant genetic implications, it may just continue to mutate. Sound familiar?
Quality health for those who can pay is probably here to stay.
I have read that supposedly there are cures or near cures for many diseases including some cancers. I must think it is odd that even today they claim the common cold can not be cured. Oh please, being able to cure any of these things would put many out if work and companies to lose billions.
Old time remedies still work for some things. I had a wart of all things growing on the top of my forehead up close to the scalp. About gone now...how ? Putting apple cider vinegar on it! Bingo..cured
They eradicated it veterinarian medicine it was called white muscle disease. It can be prevented very cheaply. The orthodox treatment has not been very successful. There is a family taking an wholistic approach.
Getting back on topic, I think Jerry stayed too long, and a replacement should have been chosen long ago. It became all about him, and he ended up a bitter man. Most comics are never really happy. He should have been grateful and retired from the on air position gracefully. Even as a young guy, I never considered him to be funny.
Ooooh @Joe Riley , I had no idea that he ended up a 'bitter man'' ..why was that? do you know? Was he not a popular entertainer in the USA in the latter part of his life...was he ill.... I'd not heard this so I'm genuinely interested to know..
As far as I know his ego played a part in his downfall, he was also very brash
He made a good living and could have had a 'better' life if he'd wanted it to be so, but I guess he lived
for the here and now. I've never read up about him as I just wasn't that interested
I guess Joe will know more than I do
There's a few articles about him in the DM this morning...here's one....
Gosh, he was 91 ! Not bad for a guy with a lot of health problems
You did well Jerry
"Bitter" may be too strong a word, maybe "angry" is a better word. Patsy hit the nail with "Ego".
OMG how rude and belligerent was he in that interview..wow!! I'm glad I was never a fan because I would have been sorely disappointed in the man after seeing that!!
I loved that interview. Starting he did not ask to be interviewed no. The news media wanted it so if someone is bugging you what do you do be honest, be blunt and to the point and hope it ends soon.
Not if that's you're career. It's fans that made him famous and rich.
If you don't like interviews and fans maybe entertainer isn't a good choice for you.
So agree with that, no matter how ill I'm feeling or down - I can manage to be civil ...... so far
Watched countless interviews with the famous and I judge them on how they come across
Had he been sensible in life and toned down the ego, just been a regular Joe who happened to work in the
entertainment industry, all would have been better for him
Not many James Stewarts' about though - unfortunately
There is no career at 91 unless you are Betty White.
