    Footage from Jerry Lewis' The Day the Clown Cried, perhaps the most infamous unreleased film of all time, leaked online on Saturday. Lewis starred in and directed the film, which told the story of a German circus clown who was arrested by the Nazis and, as punishment, was ordered to lead children into the gas chambers of Auschwitz.

    The behind-the-scenes footage includes several takes from the film, which was shot in the early 70s, plus an interview with Lewis in which the comedian discusses Charlie Chaplin's influence....


    Evidently Harry Shearer had the unpleasant/jawdropping experience of seeing it and talks to Howard Stern about it.

    Why doesn't Lewis give it to the Holocaust Museum?
