Les Blank :: Always For Pleasure (A Film/1978)

Tomorrow is Mardi Gras. I'm not touching down in NOLA until jazzfest in May, so a slice of king cake and an annual viewing of filmmaker Les Blank's' 1978 documentary, Always For Pleasure, on the subject are as close as I'm going to get. For those curious, the film is described by Blank as an "intense insider's portrait of New Orleans' street celebrations and unique cultural gumbo: Second-line parades, Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest. Features live music from Professor Longhair, the Wild . . .
