The Mismade Lady
Filmic work. Approx. 30-50 min.
Chuck Jones is in his seventies. He and his wife have been working in showbiz since the sixties, performing magic. Together they came up with a trick they call “The Mismade Lady”, its a development of the “sawing a lady in half” trick, but in this trick they put the lady in a specially designed box and cut her into four pieces. Interviews with the married couple is mixed with a staged elements where we see the trick performed close up and almost in a surgical way. The film focuses on the fascination of this obscene trick but also about the their marriage and how life in show biz (her as a the sidekick and the victim/the one in the box) influenced their relationship and life in general.
