Lenny Bruce Without Tears 1972

Lenny Bruce Without Tears: This documentary tells the story of the rise and fall of Lenny Bruce (1925-1966), hip comedian and bÍte noire to the establishment. The film makes the case that Bruce was impoverished and broken by a series of unjust arrests and prosecutions in the 1960s. Clips of Bruce performances, bits as he calls them, dominate the film, from Steve Allens TV show to night-club appearances late in life when he would mine his arrests for material. Malcolm Muggeridge calls Bruce a moralist. A former assistant district attorney from New York in effect apologizes for his part in persecuting Bruce. The bounce and snap of Bruce in the 50s transform into ironic social commentary.
