The Stars Have Lost Their Glitter … I recently chanced upon an ancient book by controversial film director, Kenneth Anger, entitled ‘Hollywood Babylon’. The front cover features a striking photograph of equally-controversial, motion picture star, Jayne Mansfield. Described as ‘the working man’s Marilyn Monroe’, Mansfield had a short-lived film career that she relentlessly tried to revive by attending many publicity events where she allowed her bosom to pour out of many an outfit. Tragically she died only aged 34 when involved in a horrific car accident. Please excuse the crudeness, I was inspired to reinterpret this photograph as I am so captivated by how it encapsulates the vice-stricken madness of the not-so elegant Hollywood lifestyle.

Movies: they're just shadows on a cave wall, right? Well, this caveman just sat (on his haunches) through two cult/underground/American New Wave classics: Scorpio Rising and Flaming Creatures, at the Gene Siskel Film Center. Let me give you my Neanderthal Reviews: Scorpio Rising (Kenneth Anger, 1963): Dudes fix motorbikes. Dudes dress up in motorbike leather gear. Main dude (Scorpio?), who is a James Dean fetishist, reads comics in bed, owns cats, gets dressed in leather gear, accessorizes with a gun, then goes to some kinda fun club for hijinx with other fun guys. There's mooning! Then: Oh dear, is that a Nazi flag? Oh god, did I just see Hitler flash by? Afterwards there is a kind of Black Mass and a motorcycle rally; all of this is set to the boppin'-est pop tunes of the day. Caveman gives it: 4 rocks out of 5. Setting clips from an old Bible epic of Jesus wandering around Being Jesus to The Crystals singing "He's A Rebel" is impossible to beat. Scorpio Rising Caveman Movie Math: Chicks: 0 Dudes: Oh, a ...

Film Club! =) I Walked with a Zombie (1943) Directed by Jacques Tourneur. With Frances Dee, Tom Conway, James Ellison, Edith Barrett.

Kenneth Anger is the Stan Brakhage of short films with people.
Here's what someone wrote about this album--which I have not heard--in the comments section of this pic. I haven't vetted the story, but it's fascinating if true... "Page actually released the soundtrack to Kenneth Anger's Lucifer Rising. I was fortunate enough back in the 1990's to have heard the actual soundtrack, which is completely psychedelic. Lucifer Rising is an experimental film on an interesting little Englishman called Aleister Crowley. Jimmy was into him for a while, even bought Crowley's house on the shores of Loch Ness. Well it turns out that Kenneth Anger didn't like Jimmy's score, they had a falling out mainly because Kenneth refused to pay Jimmy for the work he had done. Kenneth went with *** Jagger whose score sucked *** and finally ended up with Bobby Beausoliel. Can't wait to get it now ...Thank You Jimmy, its much appreciated."
