Mario Montez

Film description

Jack Smith’s 1967 program Horror and Fantasy at Midnight featured a number of individual titles – ‘film clips from the subterranean chambers of Dr. Madman!’ – including Reefers of the Technicolor Island, Scrubwoman of Atlantis, Ratdroppings of Uranus, Marsh Gas of Flatulandia, The Flake of Soot and Overstimulated. The latter aside, Reefers is the only one of these found as a stand-alone film – it also received the most press. Jonas Mekas’s Village Voice review cited a movie that starred a most beautiful marijuana plant, a gorgeous blooming white queen with her crown reaching towards the sky. At some point, Smith combined this with footage of another queen – Mario Montez – seemingly shot on the beach in Florida.
