The annual Labor Day Jerry Lewis telethon reminded me of a story the late mega-KCCK personality Bill Bell told me. Before coming to Iowa, Bill had run a recording studio in Los Angeles and rubbed elbows with Hollywood stars.
He told a story of Jerry Lewis coming to his studio to record some public service announcements, I believe it was. It seems there was a bit of a personality clash. When Bill tried to get Jerry to re-read some of the copy, Jerry snapped, "I've never done more than two takes in my life." Which led to this retort from Bill, "I know. I've seen your movies."
