Home Celebrity Jerry Lewis Lost Footage of “Buried” Film “The Day the Clown Cried”

Jerry Lewis never wanted anyone to see “The Day The Clown Cried.” But now footage has surfaced of Jerry directing this lost “buried” film. It was about a clown sent to Auschwitz who had to entertain the children. Does it sound familiar? Roberto Benigni’s “Life is Beautiful” won that actor-director an Oscar for his work, which was highly praised. The film was shot in 1972 and intended for release the next year. But Lewis pulled it back and vowed no one would ever see it. This footage was uploaded to YouTube by a Flemish website.
