Mass market paperback version of this difficult-to-find text. FilmMaker magazine describes it as: "an invaluable manuscript culled from 480 hours of Jerry Lewis lectures at the University of Southern California. . . Conversational and anecdotal, Lewis relates advice and observations that often demonstrate that though the years may change, the times stay the same. . . Lewis frequently impresses the need for directors to comprehend the technical aspects of filmmaking, and embrace the viewfinder. . . Wealth of shared experiences aside, a set of imperatives found in the prologue may offer the most truthful blueprint to the aspiring filmmaker: 'More important: make film, shoot film, run film. Do something. Make film. Shoot anything. It does not have to be sound. It does not have to be titled. It does not have to be color. There is no have to. Just do. And show it to somebody. If it is an audience of one, do and show, and then try it again. That is how. It sounds simple. It's not. Then again, it is.'"
