That wild and crazy guy, Steve Martin, makes his film-starring debut in this wild and crazy comedy hit
The Jerk. Martin portrays Navin Johnson, adopted son of a poor black share-cropper family,
whose crazy inventions lead him from rags to riches and right back to rags. Along the way, he's smitten with
a lady motorcycle racer, survives a series of screwball attacks by a deranged killer, becomes a millionaire
by inventing the "Opti-grab" handle for eye glasses - and shows why he's one of the hottest comic performers
in America today.
