The day the reader cried

So, the Einstein responsible for the title of this video clip on Yahoo! Movies forgot a few things, like an apostrophe after Lewis to show possession. And some quotation marks around the movie title would help readers:

died movies

But this would still make any reader cry, even if the video title were: Jerry Lewis’ “The Day the Clown Died” Footage Leaks.

Why? Because the movie’s title is “The Day the Clown Cried.”

    Other than those few things, it’s pretty good. At least the photo seems authentic.

    I tried a search for that on IMDB. This is the first thing that came up (as they say, I am not making this up):

    “Nudist Colony of the Dead (1991)”

    Probably because Lewis’ movie is a bit hard to get – because he never authorized its release (I didn’t have the energy to read the Yahoo! piece. PS The clown does in fact die.)

      And let’s not overlook the fact that all the words (though one is inaccurate) are spelled correctly. This could be so much worse: They could have call him Gerry Louis.
