Lewis Clown Movie Footage Surfaces
Footage of Jerry Lewis’ The Day the Clown Cried (unreleased, early 70’s) has surfaced. Listen also to the Harry Shearer interview (below) who is allegedly one of seven known people who have seen the film. The film is not lost, but vaulted away by Jerry Lewis.
The film is described as being awful and in poor taste. Lewis plays a clown who entertains Jewish children at a concentration camp. Here are some excerpts that have appeared on Youtube.
