With The King

screen capture of Shelley and Robert De Niro in The King Of Comedy, 1983

Shelley appeared in the 1983 Martin Scorsese classic The King of Comedy.  The cast of the film was lead by Robert De Niro and Jerry Lewis. It took a peak into celebrity culture; a concept that has become relevant and prevalent nowadays. Although the film wasn't quite a box office draw at the time it was released, it has slowly gained a following and has its share of fans - especially now that (unlike in 1983) people have realized the plot of the film isn't so unbelievable after all. The entire cast (including Shelley) delivered great performances in this one. It is currently available on DVD.
