I thought it would be an interesting idea to start a thread on movies that never actually came out even though they were made. Often referred to as being "shelved" they make it all the way to production but for whatever reason are never released and distributed. I can only think of two movies. One is The Fantastic Four movie that was made in the early 90's but never saw the light of day. I think it was a matter of not meeting expectations, although I'm not certain. The other is a Jerry Lewis movie called The Day the Clown Cried from the early 70's which was controversial because it dealt with the delicate mixture of humor and concentration camps. Can anyone think of other shelved movies and perhaps why they were never released to the public? What about movies that were close to being shelved but were eventually released?
