Life is Beautiful

1997 – Howard said that when this movie came out, everyone said it was a masterpiece.  It starred and was written and directed by Italian comedian Roberto Benigni, which Howard said really pissed Jerry Lewis off.  In 1972, Jerry had written and then directed himself in The Day the Clown Cried.  Jerry felt it was the same story, but everyone goofed on Jerry’s movie after one screening and he refused to release it.  Howard has put out a challenge to fans for someone to find him a copy of that movie for him to watch.

When Life is Beautiful won so many Academy Awards that year, Roberto Benigni made a fuss by jumping on chairs and going nuts every time his name was announced as a winner.  Howard thinks he’s really weird.
