Directed by Ken Jacobs

A short silent B&W film featuring a man in drag dressed in a dirty nightgown flouncing through a cemetary. This is one of the very first involving a homosexual vampire; the film was never completed due to a violent argument between actor Jack Smith and director Ken Jacobs shortly after the shooting began. Jacobs edited together what footage he had into this silent short. A title card explains that Smith 'would've starred as the Fairy Vampire.'

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
