Ever since I heard about the Jerry Lewis film, “The Day the Clown Cried”. I have wanted to see it. The film which was directed by and starred Jerry Lewis was completed in 1972 but never released. Why was it not released? The film is supposedly a horrible mess and this has been validated by people who saw a rough cut, including one of the writers on the show.
Oh and the film’s plot is very DARK. How dark? In the film Lewis plays a clown who works at a concentration camp, where he entertains doomed children. D.A.R.K.
I have resigned myself to never seeing this movie, so I was very surprised to see this video uploaded. It shows behind the scenes footage and interviews about the film. It is probably the closest we will every get to seeing this gem, so enjoy.
