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.

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.
