"According to Archer Winsten's account in the New York Post, the 1964 premiere of his first film, a silent five-hour movie of the poet John Giorno sleeping, was attended by nine people, two of whom walked out in the first half-hour." Yet more than five hundred people turned out for the L.A. premiere of SLEEP -- though a substantial portion of those people walked out and demanded their money back.
