More Dylan [Sep. 28th, 2005|11:33 am]
Tony Grist
The second part of the Dylan film has great footage of him talking to the press. The reporters are asking stupid and/or pompous questions and he's swatting them away like flies, mainly saying "no" or turning the question back on the questioner, but it's all good humoured and he's giggling at the inanity and some of the press people are laughing right along. I guess what we're seeing here is the birth of celebrity culture.

The film ends with the incident on the English tour where some protesting folkie in the audience shouts "Judas" and he replies "You're a liar; I don't believe you-" then turns to The Band and tells them to "play it fucking loud." That happened here- in Manchester's Free Trade Hall (now a hotel.) Epic stuff.

That show was produced by my station. American Masters is one of the shows that we produce for the PBS system.


I got to briefly meet Scorsese when he came in to do some voiceover. If you've ever seen him play himself on tv or in a movie, that's not an act. He's a bushy-eyebrowed hyperactive ball of distilled New Yawk, and he's quite a funny fellow.

Well I never....

It's a great show. It had me glued to the screen two nights running.

Pardon this comment about someone other than Dylan in this thread...I saw the Hank Williams show. FAbulous. I love American Masters, it is one of my favorite PBS Series.
