Nancy Godfrey is an artist who makes a plaster cast of Jim Buckley's erect penis in the film W.R.: Mysteries of the Organism on film. This scene was a point of contention for the censors. On most prints Buckley's penis is covered with psychedelic colours added in editing.

New York artist Nancy Godfrey was among a loose group called Plaster Casters, who were known for taking plaster casts of rock stars penises. In a meeting with Jim Buckley, co-founder-editor of the porn magazine Screw, Godfrey makes a plaster cast of Buckley's erect penis as a documentary part of the film W.R.: Mysteries of the Organism (1971).

The soundtrack features another song by The Fugs, "I'm Gonna Kill Myself Over Your Dead Body", with Tuli Kupferberg satirically mimicking John Wayne in his a cappella vocals.

The scene starts at 1:05.
