Carmen, Baby (1967)
The scene where Sylvia is doing the Hokey Pokey and squats down on a water bottle -- in "Carmen, Baby", Carmen is dancing on a table at a party and squats down onto a tall bottle, much to the delight of most of the other party goers. Knowing Waters as a fan of Radley Metzger, this can't be coincidental.
