The Day The Clown Cried

This is the holy grail of “So bad its good ” or “So bad I have GOT to see it ” movies. Jerry Lewis’s infamous and never released Holocaust comedy

“The Day The Clown Cried”.

The tale of a Clown in a nazi concentration camp who leads children into the gas chamber.

Here are 30 minutes of the film. I suspect culled together from documentaries ABOUT Jerry lewis, not from the film itself. Supposedly the film itself is locked up in Jerrys private vault.

It was produced but never released, either because theres legal confusion iver who actually owns the rights to it or Jerry thinks its too embarrassingly bad to show.

Lewis offered the opinion that it was all bad, an artistic failure because “I lost the magic”. Quoted in Entertainment Weekly: “You will never see it. No one will ever see it, because I am embarrassed at the poor work.”

I dont quite understand whats going on in that “spotlight room” but the footage doesn’t look THAT bad, and I would be interested in seeing the whole thing.

As many have pointed out, a film with loosely similar ideas, a comedy about a clown character in a concentration camp ” Life Is Beautiful”
