Typewriter of the moment: Jerry Lewis’s pantomime typewriter (with Leroy Anderson)

Ms. Fox’s class had a great time with this video — easy to see why, no?

From “Who’s Minding the Store,” a 1963 Paramount release.

I would have sworn I had a post on Leroy Anderson, but it’s not there to link to; you can check him out on PBS, though.  Another good topic to explore, an oversight to amend.

Jerry Lewis’s pantomime typewriter, always with the Leroy Anderson tune behind it, was one of his most famous comedic routines.  It was very popular in Europe, in both Germany and France.  It’s easy to translate.

Tip of the old scrub brush to Ms. Fox.
