Out of print. Scarce. From the text by Christian Walker: "Although these films are readily accessible for private use, in super 8 and video formats, and as single pinup pictures, in magazines, on calendars, playing cards and towels, their full essence is most revealed in the darkness, on the large screen. They light the clandestine world that exists in the balconies, lobbies, stairwells and urinals of the old burlesque houses in Boston's Combat Zone. By this light, the profane and the poignant coexist."
