NEW BBC DOCUMENTARY GIVES US A BIT MORE OF THE DAY THE CLOWN CRIED!

Jerry Lewis prepping for The Day The Clown Cried

OH MY JEEZ!  We've been obsessed with Jerry Lewis' notorious unreleased film The Day the Clown Cried for years now, and it seems like every few months something new slips through the cracks to keep us fascinated.  Never the entire thing... never even close... but just a further taste to keep us wanting more.

The latest thing to enter the world of The Day the Clown Cried obsession is a brand new documentary produced by the BBC.  While it's short of footage from the production, it does have, for the first time ever, never before seen stills from the making of the film.  These films have been buried in the archives of the Swedish Film Institute for decades.  Again, it's not even close to giving us what we want, but it's a closer look at this notorious production.



Here are some previous posts regarding the film.  Unless the National Archives, which possesses the Jerry Lewis archives, actually releases it, this will have to do.

THE MOST QUESTIONABLE FILM YOU WILL NEVER SEE!
