Fair use rationale for Image:Thousand clowns.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Thousand clowns.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

i think there needs to be a page for the broadway play page, and if there is page it needs to be in the article since it is a film-adaption of a Broadway play. See Moonraker0022 (talk) 06:02, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Most plays that were remade as movies have two articles, but for some reason, A Thousand Clowns has only the movie article. Someone who knows about plays is invited to write the play article. David Spector 03:57, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
There should at least be a chapter on the play in this article. I wasn't even born when the play ran, but I know that Sandy Dennis played as Sandra Markowitz, and I just found out thanks to IBDb, that Larry Haines played as Arnold Burns. ----DanTD (talk) 14:04, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
Section on the Broadway stage play added today. Flami72 (talk) 20:10, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Lousy Synopsis[edit]

This isn't a particularly insightful plot summary. It says that Murray seduced Sandra? He started out by insulting and ridiculing her 50 ways.-- (talk) 14:19, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Something else I noticed; Murray's reason for leaving work was that he used one of the childish catch-phrases from the show to order a beer from a bar sometime after work. Evidently, that was embarrassing to him, living an adult life and saying something you'd only expect from a little six-year-old, give or take a couple of years. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 14:29, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Larry Harmon[edit]

Has anyone determined whether "Leo Herman" (the character who plays Chuckles) is a pun on "Larry Harmon" (the not-well-liked person who owned the Bozo franchise)? WilliamSommerwerck (talk) 16:24, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
