Film description

Jack Smith’s ‘live films’ incorporate footage going back to the mid 1950s. Thus, Respectable Creatures intercuts material from Smith’s first movie, Buzzards over Baghdad, with scenes shot over a decade later during carnival in Rio de Janeiro, and scenes from Normal Love, including an alternate version of The Yellow Sequence. The extant footage suggests a relatively straightforward gloss on the María Montez vehicle, a harem girl and her lover putting poison in the caliph’s wine. Jacobs regarded Smith’s intentions as devoid of irony – although that was certainly not the case a decade or more later when Smith reassembled the footage, discovered in a film can labeled.
