This short film is the second segment of the 1968 film The Strange World of Coffin Joe[1][2] .


A poor and unattractive balloon seller with a foot fetish becomes obsessed with a beautiful woman who he sees passing daily. He begins to follow her and observe her activities, when, watching her wedding, he sees her murdered. After being turned away from her funeral, he later returns and breaks into the mausoleum where her coffin is placed. Opening the coffin, he removes her burial wedding dress, has sex with the body and performs foot fetishism. After redressing her, he places a pair of beautiful new shoes on her feet, shoes that the balloon seller retained after she dropped them while shopping, hoping one day to return them to her.
