Just a few days after Movies! TV announced its Jerry Lewis tribute, Turner Classic Movies said Thursday it will also pay tribute to the actor-comedian on Labor Day.

TCM will screen five films on Sept. 4 starring Lewis, who died Sunday at age 91, beginning at 8 p.m. with the 1963 Jekyll and Hyde comedy “The Nutty Professor,” arguably his most popular film. It will be followed by Martin Scorsese’s 1982 drama “The King of Comedy” (at 10 p.m.); “The Stooge,” made with Dean Martin in 1952 (midnight); 1960’s “The Bellboy” (2 a.m.); and the 1964 farce “The Disorderly Orderly” (3:30 a.m.).

One of Lewis’ final public appearances was as a special guest aboard TCM Classic Cruise in November, where he was interviewed about his career.
