the Mermaid, the Werewolf and the Mud Bath

Normal Love
Jack Smith
Old Lyme CT 1963

Since I’ve found a better source for frame enlargements or screen captures from Normal Love, I figured it would be nice to look at a short section of a favorite sequence in detail.  Here Eliot Cukor is just beginning to smear Mario Montez with that very black mud they found near the shore in Connecticut.  Below he can be seen falling backward while trying a lift, thoroughly coating her with muck, and finally beaming his charming smile directly into the eye of the viewer.
