Lenny Bruce, fearless fighter for free speech, tragically passed away on this day, August 3, 1966.

“From the time I commenced production on Lenny Bruce: Swear To Tell The Truth, until it received its premiere broadcast on HBO, thirteen years had come and gone. My standard joke was that I didn’t know whether to release the film or have it Bar Mitzvah’d.”
