I think they were in black and white. He had me act in one ... In the 60's there was all this push for cultural diversity and everything, so they wanted him to do... it was on African dance and masks. He had met in the class, Ed Lowe, at the New School for Social Research in the late 60's. He was taking these classes and he hooked up with Ed Lowe ... part of it was the African dances and the music and then they talked about masks and he had me demonstrate how to make a paper-mache mask and the Metropolitan Museum of Art bought it. It was the only one he ever sold. The other one was on Coney Island ... It was like a study of the people on the beach"; illustration shows 1971 letter from Ed Bland, program director, Jazz in the Garden, Museum of Modern Art, addressed to "Mr. Harry Kane, Harry Kane Productions, 152 E. 52 Street, New York, New York, 10002," about script for a jazz film to be titled "Bong Mr. Bong") {http://www.harrykaneart.com/}
