When you mention the name Jerry Lewis most people will think of things like 'The Nutty Professor', Labor Day Telethons, or Martin & Lewis movies. Very few, however, will think of a clown that leads children into the doom-showers of a German deathcamp.

Yes, you read right. In 1972, Lewis starred in a not-released movie called 'The Day the Clown Cried', about a clown in Auschwitz who merrily entertains the kids as they're on the way to being dusted. Is it a comedy? Is it a drama? The world may never know. The reasons for it not being released vary from Lewis being so shocked at the end result to the proper palms not being greased enough.

In any case, the good folks over at Ape-O-Naut have obtained a copy of the script, and give us a peak into what could be one of the greatest works of film ever made.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
