This is a 27" x 41" US one-sheet for the 1979 Carl Reiner film The
Jerk based on a story by Steve Martin and Carl Gottlieb,
screenplay by Steve Martin, Carl Gottlieb and Michael Elias and
starring Steve Martin as Navin R. Johnson. This was Steve Martin's
first starring role in a feature film. Plot summary: Navin personally
narrates his story for the viewer. He tells us he is a foolish
homeless bum adopted by an African American sharecropper who does not
realize he is adopted until adulthood. He leaves home and hitchhikes
to St. Louis looking for the Roger Wolfe Kahn Orchestra, whose
performance of "Crazy Rhythm" he has heard on the radio and liked. On
the road he falls in love with Marie [Bernadette Peters], but Marie
reluctantly leaves him because of the lack of financial security.
Navin's fortunes take a turn for the better when an invention is a
commercial success, so he finds and marries Marie. Then problems with
the invention and a series of lawsuits reverse his fortunes; Navin is
soon homeless again and abandoned once more by Marie.
