Jack Smith shot this six-minute black-and-white film in his New York City apartment probably sometime in 1959. Overstimulated is a study in light and movement, in which two men in long dresses jump around in front of a flickering television as the camera darts about. The performers are Jerry Sims, who also appears in Smith's Scotch Tape (1962) and acts with Smith in Ken Jacobs' Star Spangled to Death (1957), and Bob Fleischner, who directed the footage of Smith which Jacobs would use in his classic Blonde Cobra (1963).
