Jerry Lewis: The typewriter

If you haven't seen any of Jerry Lewis' madcap comedy before, here is a good place to start: Jerry Lewis playing with the old-fashioned typewriter. Never mind the first part of the clip. What matters is the black-and-white sequence that follows. It's classic Jerry Lewis. Vintage stuff. His masterpiece. Enjoy:

BTW, The Typewriter - composed by American Leroy Anderson in 1950 - reminds me of an old radio news programme that used to air on the English service of Radio Malaya (that is, before Malaya became Malaysia). It's a really old song...
