Nun and Zebra

16mm color movie, 9.5  min 
Jack Smith 
Lower East Side NYC 
1969 - 1971                                                                        

This short film contains some imagery that Smith would use again in Boiled Lobster of Lucky Landlady Lagoon. It stars Mario Montez as a lady with a zebra striped cigarette holder in need of a light and Irving Rosenthal as an admirer with a match.  As Jerry Tartaglia pointed out: the troublesome hair caught in the camera’s pressure plate is reminiscent of the cellophane tape in Scotch Tape.
