Jerk, The Easter Egg - Angry Man with Crossed Eyes!
In "The Jerk"(1979) Navin R. Johnson(the incomparable Steve Martin) wins fortune,
fame and the dame(Bernadette Peters) from a simple invention he added to prop a supersalesman's slipping eyeglasses. The salesman (Bill Macy) was very gratefull and had given NRJ full credit for the lucrative invention. At the time NRJ had been content to live in the gas station storeroom owned by Harry Hartounian(Jackie Mason). But he was soon to move on in his adventures and the wealth found him later on in the movie....
After showing the world how an idiot blows away his riches, tragedy strikes in the form of a law suit. A cross-eyed gentleman claims injury from staring at the "nose prop" in the middle of his face. >>>> The angry man on the television screen
who ruins NRJ was in truth the director of the film, Carl Reiner, in brief cameo.
