The title is a pun on the French phrase, "Oh, quel cul t'as!", meaning, "Oh, what a cute bum you have!" It is taken, pun and all, from a painting Clovis Trouille (1889-1975) "Oh! Calcutta! Calcutta!". The title is written on the original painting at the right on the lower edge. The image of the painting appears in the background in the beginning. See more »

Oh Calutta was edited at Teletape Studios in New York City. I was 28 years old when I edited this video. It was edited on 2 inch tape using the first electronic editing system called Editec. We spent many days and nights working on the piece. I remember my car was towed away twice during the edit sessions. The video was to be shown on closed circuit video projection to a number of theaters around the country but many had to cancel because of protests. A poor quality film was made from the video tape and shown in theaters along with "Fritz the Cat". I was surprised when I discovered the video had been made into a DVD. Where was the original tape all these years?
