Crackpots Hit Jackpot

This 1951 issue of Life Magazine identifies Martin and Lewis as the "Top Money Act In Show Business" at the time.

The article (in the entertainment section) is titled "Crackpots Hit Jackpot."

There are original copies of Life at reasonable prices available from OldLifeMagazines.com online. They only had one slightly damaged copy of this issue, and gave me a nice discount on it. Once it arrives I'll include excerpts on the Podcast.

I'm also still working my way through Jerry's book, and still enjoying it. The anecdotes are interesting and charming. I'll save further review until I finish it.
