    New Images Of Jerry Lewis's Infamous Holocaust Movie Emerge

    New images from ‘The Day The Clown Cried’, comedian Jerry Lewis’s infamous movie about the holocaust, have surfaced. Lewis decided that once the movie was made it would never be released, and it remains that it’s only ever been seen by a handful of people. Lewis both directed and starred in the movie, which told the harrowing tale of a washed up clown called Helmut Doork who is sent to a prison camp for drunkenly mocking Hitler.

    Jerry Lewis Turned Down The Lead in 'Some Like It Hot'

    During a conversation with Martin Scorsese at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York on Tuesday night, Lewis revealed that he was originally asked by director Billy Wilder to star in the 1959 classic Some Like It Hot. Wilder wanted Lewis — who’d split with Dean Martin several years earlier — to play the role of Jerry, an uptight jazz musician who winds up on the run from the mob. Lewis, however, balked at the prospect of dressing in drag for much of the film — despite the fact that it would have allowed him to share an on-screen kiss with Hot costar Marilyn Monroe.
