A violent argument between actor Jack Smith and director Ken Jacobs terminated the shooting of this film not long after it began, and The Death of P'Town became the last time Smith performed for Jacobs' camera. Jacobs edited together what footage he had into this silent short, in which a title card explains that Smith "would've starred as the Fairy Vampire." Smith lives up to that description and is seen madly cavorting in a Provincetown graveyard, dressed in a dirty old nightgown.
