Fun The Salina Journal Thursday, January 9,1986 Page 19 Lewis to try comedy comeback The Far Side By Eugene Sheffer Gossip By ROBIN ADAMS SLOAN King Features Q. I keep reading that Jerry Lewis will soon make a big movie comeback as a comedian. Anything to it? — L.H. A. Lewis made a movie comeback of •sorts in director Martin Scorsese's :"King of Comedy," in which Lewis co-starred with Robert DeNiro as a ;Johnny Carson-type TV talk show ;host. The movie was not a comedy, ;and it didn't do well at the box-office. ;Now, Jerry tells me, he's eager to try ;again for a comedy comeback. •That's why he's set to co-star with former SNL funnyman Joe Piscopo in "Son of the Nutty Professor." If the title is familiar, it's only because Lewis starred, directed and coauthored the 1963 original movie, "The Nutty Professor." It'll be good to have Lewis and laughter reunited onscreen.. Q. Irene Dunne, one of Hollywood's greatest film stars, was also a great lady. What's become of her? Is she Tank McNamara Lewis Dunne still alive? —G.S. A. Dunne, who was 81 on Dec. 20, is alive and well and living in retirement with her grandson and granddaughter in Beverly Hills, Calif. She was recently the recipient of coveted honors for lifetime achievement from the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Irene's career lasted from 1930 to her early retirement in 1952, and it was densely packed with memorable flicks ("Showboat," "Cimarron" and "I Remember Mama," among many others). Ever the picture of the perfect lady onscreen, Dunne remains so offscreen. She's retained a lively sense of impish humor. She recently confessed to me that the only actor she ever had a crush on was the late Richard Burton — whom she never met. Q. I roared at the off-the-walls antics of Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd in their new movie comedy, "Spies Like Us," in which they play a couple of mixed-up intelligence operatives. They also co-starred as spies in an earlier movie, didn't they? — E.K. A. You're as confused as the boys are in "Spies Like Us." First off, this movie represents the first screen pairing of Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd, though they did make many appearances in tandem on TV's "Saturday Night Live." Chevy played a bungling detective (not a spy) in "Foul Play," his auspicious screen debut; while Dan was involved in bizarre crime-fighting is his big film hit, "Ghostbusters." Most coincidentally, Aykroyd originally opted for a career in criminology at Ottawa's Carlton University, studying this subject for four years before comedy beckoned.
