  • Title on container: Lenny Bruce performance film
  • Lenny Bruce.
  • "Iconoclast Lenny Bruce appears at San Francisco's Basin Street West in what was his next-to-last live appearance. His act that night consisted of reading allegations and transcripts from one of his several obscenity trials and then commenting on what he'd actually done or said. While there are some 'bits' in the performance ... this is much more a social commentary on government intrusion and censorship than it is a comedy routine."
