A double-sided flyer announcing "An Evening With Mario Montez Movies" at the Astor Playhouse, NYC, June 12 (1965).

B/w mimeograph. 28x21.6cm. Illustrated. Short, 1cm. closed tear to lower left edge, o/w Fine.

The titles of the films screened are printed on the lower part of the verso (all of which feature Mario Montez [René Rivera]): excerpts from 'Flaming Creatures', 'Normal Love', and 'Pasty Glamor' by Jack Smith; 'Chumlum' by Ron Rice; 'Four Unseen Works' by Andy Warhol; 'Lil Picard's Beauty Environment of the Year 2165', 'The Mystery of the Spanish Lady', and 'Brothel: Tangiers Dream Cycle' by Bill Vehr.

The event was organised by The Filmmakers' Cinematheque, whose ad. in The Village Voice two days earlier mentioned "a never before seen Andy Warhol work", almost certainly the premiere of 'Screen Test #2', which starred Mario Montez being interviewed by Ronald Tavel. Montez is also the subject of two poems printed on the verso of the flyer: the first, 'Secret Bombay Nights: A Dream Speech For Mario Montez' by Bill Vehr, and the second, 'The Intimate Journal of a Movie Queen: For Mario Montez" by Gerard Malanga.
