This week, The Bootleg Files is on a break. However, for those who never experienced the column during its original run on another site, there were 575 columns that ran between March 2003 (debuting with Disney’s “Song of the South”) and September 2015 (ending with Satyajit Ray’s “Sikkim”). I will add that I am glad to be part of Cinema Crazed and grateful that The Bootleg Files are now here. A new column in The Bootleg Files will be online next week.

This episode takes a look back at Academy Awards history and considers the time when the Oscar voters may not have picked the right films and actors to receive their coveted prize. Film historian Jerry Roberts is the guest on this fun and provocative episode.
The ego! The vulgarity! The love/hate relationship with Dean! Those wonderfully awful telethons! That clown-in-the-concentration-camp movie! Has there ever been a more bizarre, aggravating and (yes) invigorating force of malevolent comedy than Jerry Lewis? Even at 90, he continues to amaze and astonish – usually, for the wrong reasons, but that’s why we can’t get enough of him. Today, the funniest man on Facebook, Anthony “The Kingfish” Vitamia, joins us to discuss all things Jerry.
“The Online Movie Show” is produced at the Platinum Wolfe Studios.
