Jerry Lewis Goes To Death Camp

Some stories need to be churned up to the top of the vortex (vorttext?) that is the interweb from time to time. Therefore, penguins, I bring you the Spy article on the Jerry Lewis film 'The Day The Clown Cried'. To quote from the article: An unhappy German circus clown is sent to a concentration camp and forced to become a
sort of genocidal Pied-Piper, entertaining Jewish children as he leads them to the gas chambers.

The film did not 'work' to put it mildly, and has never been released - in fact a finished edit was never done.

Read and marvel.
