Footnotes

  • Given to the vendor by Kenneth Anger.

    Now regarded as a cult classic, the film premiered in New York City in October 1963. Included in the film's themes were the occult and biker subculture. When shown in L.A., the theatre manager was charged with public obscenity and the screening cancelled. The case went to the Supreme Court, which overturned the charges. Like other films by Anger, there is no dialogue, but features a soundtrack of rock 'n' roll music by Elvis Presley, Ricky Nelson, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Ray Charles and others.
