The Day The Clown Cried

I don't know a heck of a lot about Jerry Lewis' lost final film, The Day The Clown Cried. Mr. Brown printed me out a fairly large article about it something like eight or nine years ago, and after reading it we named a C-Building Kids track about it. It's Lewis' final, unreleased film and it has him as a German clown named Helmut Doork who is imprisoned in a concentration camp and attempts to lighten the other prisoners hearts with his, um, clowning.

What little I do know about this film also includes the fact that it's kind of a big deal that this footage has surfaced. Further proof that in today's world, if there is footage out there it will eventually find the light - C'mon Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me deleted scenes:
