Jerry and Sammy
It wouldn't be Labor Day weekend without at least one clip from the Jerry Lewis telethon for muscular dystrophy.
For someone in the neighborhood of my age, the telethon was one of those things that was a part of growing up - something that you thought would never go away. It signified the end of summer, and reminded you that yes - on Tuesday morning, you were going to have to drag yourself out of bed at an ungodly hour.
In the past I've posted the famous clip of Jerry's reunion with Dean Martin, so this year we'll use one with another Rat Pack legend - Sammy Davis, Jr.
