Amazing footage of Jerry Lewis The Day the Clown Cried.


It's in Dutch? Why is that?

EDIT: It's from a Dutch documentary. Well, I have the privilege to understand it.

Translate it for us? Those YouTube auto-subtitles make zero sense. I don't know why they're even there.

Yeah, it is one of those films that never saw the light of day.
Apparently 7 people total have seen the rough cut all the way through, one of them being Harry Shearer (of Simpsons fame). His comments just make me want to see it even more:

With most of these kinds of things, you find that the anticipation, or the concept, is better than the thing itself. But seeing this film was really awe-inspiring, in that you are rarely in the presence of a perfect object. This was a perfect object. This movie is so drastically wrong, its pathos and its comedy are so wildly misplaced, that you could not, in your fantasy of what it might be like, improve on what it really is. "Oh My God!" that's all you can say.
