|Dali and Babou|
He is dressed in a gold lame jumpsuit and a heavy blue overcoat and carries Babou, his pet ocelot, and a walking stick with an elaborately carved head. "It's a new Dali," he says.
"Underneath Manhattan are the activities which give the city life" he continues, then bids the newsmen, soundmen, photographers, and workers to follow him underground by means of a primitive cable car. Forty feet underground, where engineers are constructing a new sewer line.
Dali was past his prime and talked on and on. Nonetheless, his best line ‒ "it's a real happening when no one knows what's happening" ‒ was used by all. And, of course, the term "sewer-realism" was also slyly mentioned.
