An excerpt from Cult of the Great Eleven, capturing Gale Banks' testimony on the witness stand when asked about the bizarre rituals of the Divine Order of the Royal Arms of the Great Eleven:
Banks acknowledged an enigmatic concord known as “The Horse’s Hoof and the Breathing In,” that included the ceremonial pouring of hot water on a horse’s back. He said the ritual had a connection to the film, Hot Water, a Harold Lloyd comedy released in 1924. When asked about the relationship of the film to the concord, he got cagey, stating, “It would take a long time to explain. I would have to sit here a year.”
In fact, there are several peculiar connections between the Harold Lloyd classic and the rituals of the Divine Order of the Royal Arms of the Great Eleven. Below is a scene from the film which is one such connection - a bit of an inside joke.
