Jack Paar

  1. Jerry Lewis, It’s A Mad Mad Mad Mad World, 1962.    Producer-director Stanley Kramer’s movie was stuffed full with stars – mainly comics. Not all agreed to join  the party, being terrified at the prospect of working with the great Spencer Tracy.   The talk show king was asked to be… wait for it… Driver Running Over Hat!  He was too busy.  Jerry did it as an uncredited gag – and lost  $500 in Phil Silvers’ on-set crap games!   (Silvers lost more, reported Milton Berle).
