More BTS Material From Jerry Lewis' THE DAY THE CLOWN CRIED Hits The Net!!
Back in August 2013, there was an fascinating flurry of activity regarding THE DAY THE CLOWN CRIED - Jerry Lewis’ famously buried 1972 film chronicling the wrenching tale of a clown in a German concentration camp during WWII. The script for this film is strange and utterly compelling, and culminates in one of the most harrowing and haunting final sequences I’ve ever encountered (in concept alone, regardless of how well executed it might or might not have been).

Interestingly, there’s a new batch of material making the rounds today - on YouTube and noted by A.V. Club. More BTS stuff, more insight into the production of this this ever elusive and highly provocative unreleased title.
