PhotographÂ was edited for publication purposes Photograph article dated February 20, 1961 partially reads, "Ask any two moviegoers who is the top box-office movie star in the United States and the odds are that the reply will mention such personalities as Marlon Brando, Rock Hudson, William Holden, Tony Curtis or Gary Cooper. Everyone who descends upon me with this interesting question gives me a 'Isn't-It-Too-Bad-About-Pam' look when I state unhesitatingly that the star is Jerry Lewis. For several years theater owner and managers throughout the country have been naming Jerry Lewis as the 'number one boxoffice star in the United States,' according to a poll taken of 18,000 United States movie houses and as recorded in several trade journals." Jerry Pam interviews Jerry Lewis on set.
