Bride Stripped Bare, The

Rental Format(s): 16mm film

The unveiling of Chicago's five-story Picasso by Mayor Daley and the city fathers (and mothers). Symbolically the event was a marriage of the virgin Art to Politics. His honor winds up the event by publicly raping the statue. The film includes a beautiful 6'8" blonde, Mayor Daley caught with his finger stuck in his ear, and the filmmaker treed by the police, and finally a breathtaking coda, Chicago's final tribute to Picasso and his statue.
