I seem to recall that he had kept the reasons behind his ardent support for Muscular Dystrophy causes was not released, and that such information might be exposed after his demise; will have to see if this information in forthcoming. Loved the old Martin and Lewis movies, as well as the original "Nutty Professor." Enjoyed "The Caddie" in particular.
