VIDEO: See Long-Lost Footage from Jerry Lewis' Holocaust Film
Footage has surfaced from a long-lost 1972 Holocaust film starring, co-written and directed by Jerry Lewis — and it's not pretty.
The Day the Clown Cried, in which Lewis plays a circus performer who's captured by Nazis after making fun of Hitler and later uses his routines to amuse children in the concentration camp where he's sent, was scheduled to be released at the Cannes Film Festival shortly after it was made. But audience reaction at test screenings caused the film to be shelved, NBC News reports.
