It's a lovely film, so full of energy and beautifully shot by Gil
Taylor. Anyone know what stock it was shot on? Ilford? Kodak?
Agfa? DuPont? Ansco? Ferrania?
I think Julie Christie makes her first film appearance dancing in a
club, though it may be someone else.
Worth seeing the Maysles Brothers "What's Happening -- The Beatles in
the US" which can now be seen again -- a film of their first US tour,
influential on Richard Lester. Speaking of Lester, catch "It's Trad,
Dad" (also known as Ring-A-Ding Rhythm) on TCM -- predecessor to Hard
Day's Night -- a jukebox movie with some surreal moments in it (catch
the proto-Bonzo art-school band) and amazing early music videos 20
years too early.
