Great news film geeks, fans, and aficionados coming from Indie Wire Jerry Lewis’ long-unreleased film The Day the Clown Cried has been acquired by the Library of Congress. The Library of Congress had acquired this film along with other pieces of Lewis’ work. This acquisition means thatThe Day the Clown Cried will be preserved for future generations. However, Lewis did provide one caveat for The Day the Clown Cried, which is that there is a ten-year screening embargo on the movie. What that means is that while the film will be preserved from here on out, unfortunately for us film fans the movie can not be seen for another decade. Ten years from now we will finally be able to see The Day the Clown Cried in some respect.
