As much of The Day the Clown Cried as we're likely to see. Funny, watching this provides some insight as to why Jerry Lewis is taken seriously by serious film people-- and especially the French. The Cahiers du Cinéma crowd respected Lewis because he was an auteur, in complete control of his films, and you can see some of that in this clip. Granted, the subject matter is appalling, but is it really worse than Life is Beautiful? It is hard to think of how it could be.
