Trivia

None of the characters are heard speaking throughout the whole film (sometimes their mouths move, but no sound comes out), much like a silent film. Only music is played throughout the film and the only voice heard is that of the narrator. See more »

Goofs

At the end of his first day, Mr. Teas goes back to his office. The office girl there has something dark just under the sweater on her right breast during close up shots, but it disappears in the (slightly) wider shots. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: The guitar as we know it today, came about as a result of many types of earlier stringed instruments. There was first the harp, the lute, then the zither, and mandolin. The guitar is a very sensitive instrument, with "G" being the third string, and is played over a system of frets. Sensitive men have been fretting over G-strings for years!

Salacious & esoteric 'Beatnik' art?
18 October 2006 | by peterwhittle14See all my reviews

The existential Mr.Teas represents to me: avant garde 'Beatnik Art' so well parodied in the pages of 'Playboy' magazine circa.1959.He is a free-thinker: 'searching' for the inner meanings & thoughts subdued by the forced conformity of the 1950s.The mental undressing of the ladies he encounters is his statement of individuality in the doomed pluralist mediocrity of the San Francisco he inhabits. Mr Teas retreats from the disillusioned dentist delivery-man to his licentious alter-ego; fishing in the lagoon , cavorting in 'The Raincheck Room' & a diner with the waitress.Then with 'Nana',a sensational burlesque dancer that even Russ Meyer himself applauds vigorously. He seems to represent the repressed everyman in all of us.Mr Meyer began his illustrious 'sex-ploitation' film catalogue with an 'Tati'-esque artistic creation.A total masterpiece!.
