Special Report: The Day The Clown Cried (1972)

The Day the Clown Cried On this special episode of The Projection Booth, Mike and Mondo Justin share their recent find -- a rare copy of the "unreleased" film, The Day the Clown Cried by Jerry Lewis.

Mike explains how he found the print while Mondo Justin gives the rich history of the film before the pair discuss how it was to finally see this filmic Holy Grail.

The film should be available to the public in 2025.

  1. I usually download the episodes and listen to them days or weeks later when I'm working. Your performance even got me truly moved while listening to the description of the scenes. YOUUUUU!!! >:C

  2. Somehow Mike and Justin got their hands on a copy of Jerry Lewis's never-before-seen The Day The Clown Cried, the film where Lewis plays a clown who tries to entertain little kids in concentration camps as they're sent off to the gas chambers.

    Sounds hilarious, right? Well, for some reason Jerry Lewis doesn't want anyone to ever see it - and yet somehow, Mike and Justin managed to snag a copy.

    (This episode is best listened to in April, preferably near the beginning of the month.)

  3. Great Review, look forward to 2025.

    Recently read a book by Mark Twain from Collins Publishing, book was not to released till 2010... sadly the content did little to shock and awe the 21st century populous.
