Very Fun with Traubel and Lewis

Jerry Lewis was a huge opera fan and he always took every chance he could to bring opera front and center. Traubel was a great sport, aside from having I think one of the greatest voices of her generation, she was very adept at jazz too!

The first clip is a rehearsal for her to try and keep a straight face because she just couldn’t stop from laughing around Jerry. Who could?

She had to, they were making a film together, the 1961 “The Ladies Man”.

The second clip is just mayhem. Fabulous and fun mayhem. Not bad Jazz singing and pop singing either.
