Andy Warhol gathered together several performers and friends and had them each do a turn for this black-and-white feature: a sort of revue, hosted by Gerard Malanga. Paul Swan dances with Baby Jane Holzer. Mario Montez sings and dances to "I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate". Mar-Mar performs yo-yo tricks. Jody Babb takes a stab at "Let Me Entertain You". Tally Brown tries to talk her way out of performing. The highlight is Jack Smith, who declines to perform and instead insists that he wants to "open the closet"; eventually, he persuades Warhol's otherwise immobile camera to come follow him to a glass cabinet that contains nothing but a Batman comic book.
