A crowd of champagne-riddled art patrons witness and react to the unveiling of a fountain sculpted by Richard See and the filmmaker. The fountain collapsed the night this film premiered.
"A delightful film of adults seeming to be thrilled by a new 'toy.' Their praise was well spoken and their jovial mood seems prompted more by the drinks than the objective spectacle."
"The fountain and the hills behind were really beautiful. If the sound was supposed to be garbled, that's a cheap way to get a laugh off people. I don't know."
"Unless your projector's sound flutters, this film is not garbled."
