Guest event: Underground Films by Stanley Taub 1951-1969

We are screening seven classic underground films made by STANLEY TAUB in the 1950s and 1960s. Stan picked up a movie camera that his father gave him when he was a teenager. He started making movies and decided he did not want to be a doctor – but his father strongly objected. Making movies kept him alive during medical school. Here we will see the films for the first time, restored and remastered classics in HD with new dialogue, effect and music score.

Concerto Macabre

What starts out as routine house break-in event turns out to be a voyage into the Macabre involving resurrection, homoeroticism and the sudden appearance of virtuosic musical talent.

The Great Railway Express Robbery

In the history of Cowboy Westerns it should be noted that this film is only Western ever made in the Bronx. A group of outlaws rob a railway ticket office stealing a large cache of money.

Children At Play

In the style of Stanley Kubrick, Taub in one hundred feet of film edited in the camera captures the tension and drama of juvenile delinquents committing Grand Larceny and their final confrontation with the Law.

Not As A Strangler

An hospital emergency room is the setting where the patient is the con-artist and the unwitting doctors become his victims.

A Day In Bash Bish Falls

An artist and his wife encounter a strange set of events taking place in and around Bash Bish Falls. The events are surreal and test the limits of human imagination.

Eh!

in this Italian-dubbed spoof/drama an artist who usually has his way with beautiful models is confronted by the young lover of one of the models and he takes his revenge.

The Cape Cod Piece

An itinerant hitchhiker enters Provincetown and takes vicarious pleasure in spying on lovers as he follows them into the dunes.
