Jerry photographed after the jewel robbery of his hotel suite, NYC June, 1962.
There’s a sad incident surrounding this pic—While JL was at the studio filming the Tonight Show, which he hosted for some time, a massive $385,000 in jewelry belonging to him and his wife were stolen from their hotel room in NYC. The items that meant the most were a necklace he had given her when they were first married and a ring that his dad had given him. He made an appeal on the show the following night to the thieves, describing the sentimental value of the items. Amazingly when he returned to CA, the ring was returned to him, on the seat of his car one day when he was in the studio!
Aside from the sadness and small redemption regarding this photo—can I just say that Jerry looks HELLA good here?! I mean, Jesus—he is like God’s gift to women…..
