This charming, short black-and-white comedy features Jack Smith as the mysterious leader of an even-more-mysterious cult, garbed in pseudo-papal regalia and adorned with jewelry and makeup. His followers do his bidding by abducting and cross-dressing an unsuspecting mailman. The triumphant Smith launches a processional and is soon joined by real neighborhood children in the streets of Lower Manhattan. Eventually, the police came along and the shooting ended, but not before director Ken Jacobs got a wonderful overhead shot of Smith trying to explain himself to the cops in their patrol car.
