Garlic Is as Good as Ten Mothers

Garlic Is As Good As Ten Mothers is a 1980 documentary film about garlic directed by Les Blank. In 2004, the film was deemed "culturally significant" by the United States Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.

It was filmed at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Gilroy, California, as well as in other locations in Northern California. Its official premiere was at the 1980 Berlin Film Festival.

The director recommends that, when the film is shown, a toaster oven containing several heads of garlic be turned on in the rear of the theater, unbeknownst to the audience, with the intended result that approximately halfway through the showing the entire theater will be filled with the smell of garlic.[1]
