For a decade Max’s Kansas City ruled New York, becoming the premier spot to eat, drink, dance, party, and frolic. ⠀

In 1970, Croatian émigré and avant-garde filmmaker Anton Perich arrived at Max’s, by way of Paris. He made friends with some busboys on staff, and they said it was the best job in America. In 1972, he joined the staff, which included waitress Debbie Harry, whose presence eluded him.⠀
