The King of Comedy. 1982. USA. Directed by Martin Scorsese. 109 min.
Screenplay by Paul D. Zimmerman. With Robert De Niro, Jerry Lewis, Dihanne Abbott, Sandra Bernhard. After enduring a decade of neglect in the 1970s, Lewis regained his prominence with a finely detailed dramatic performance in Martin Scorsese’s show business fable, as a seen-it-all late night host kidnapped by an obsessive, ambitious fan (Robert De Niro).
