A psychedelic precursor to music videos, in which The Mothers of Invention, a touring musical group, wreak havoc in Centerville, a stereotypical American town. The first color movie made on videotape and then transferred to film, it includes many visual effects.
In attempting to summarize the infamous history of FRANK ZAPPA’S 200 MOTELS, three quotes mentioned in Amos Vogel’s book, Film as a Subversive Art, come to mind which also address early malignment of the film.
For the music’s ribald, bawdy lyrics, which caused a live performance of 200 MOTELS to be banned from the Royal Albert Hall in 1971, Goethe wrote to Johann Eckermann, “Only the perverse fantasy can still save us.”
For co-director, Tony Palmer, who publicly disowned the film in an article he submitted to the British Sunday Observer for what he wrote off as a shamble and misguided scrap heap, Nathanael West wrote, “Your order is meaningless, my chaos is significant.”
Of note, Palmer withdrew his repudiation of the film recently by placing his name above the film’s title on last April’s DVD release (We’re Only in It for the Money, Mr. Palmer?).
And lastly, for Zappa who had no formal filmmaking training and for his prescient useage of videotape (200 MOTELS was the first feature film shot on video; director Palmer threatened to erase the master videotapes, which producer, Jerry Goode, later did in order to “balance the film budget”), then transferred to 35mm film using 3-strip Technicolor process, filmmaker Jean Cocteau wrote, “What one should do with the young is to give them a portable camera and forbid them to observe any rules except those they invent for themselves as they go along.”

The first ever full-length film biography of the great composer, produced by the multi-award winning director, Tony Palmer.
The Last Ever Interview with Ursula Vaughan Williams

Tony Palmer's film is now complete. Undoubtedly controversial it will also be very important in raising awareness of RVW. Two and a half hours long, it looks at Vaughan Williams' life as a disturbed and frustrated one. Powerful with some harrowing imagery, the film firmly dispels the myth that VW was a cuddly folk song collector and recycler who was affectionately known as "Uncle Ralph". As well as exploring his musical legacy, Palmer also focuses on the human side of VW. His frustration at living in a cosy market town, looking after an invalid wife (which he did devotedly) and the fury as well as the kindness and humanity which were all features of his remarkable character and which in their turn affected his music. The music passages are superbly played and filmed.

Kolektion: DocumentarySubkolektion: Ballet

This is the story of how the most famous dancer that England has ever produced was deceived and betrayed by those closest to her; of how a little girl called Peggy Hookham, brought up in Shanghai, told her mother she would one day become the greatest dancer in the world; and of how, in spite of being almost unable to walk, she was still performing when she was 67.
It is a story of courage and tenacity, of unbelievable devotion - to her art and to those whom she loved who, in the end, left her penniless and alone, even to the extent that she was buried at first in a pauper’s grave. It is the stuff of fiction - except that it is true.

Among the ballets featured are: “Romeo & Juliet,” “Swan Lake,” “Giselle,” “The Sleeping Beauty,” “Marguerite & Armand,” and “The Nutcracker” with Rudolf Nureyev, Frederick Ashton, Robert Helpmann, Ninette De Valois, Roland Petit, Monica Mason, Lynn Seymour, Antoinette Sibley, Anthony Dowell & Beryl Grey.

Michael Crawford has starred in some of the biggest box-office hits of all time. From Frank Spencer in Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em, to the original Phantom in Phantom of the Opera, both in London's West End and on Broadway; from circus showman in Barnum to EFX, the multi-million extravaganza at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, the biggest hotel in the world, which he dominated for over two years, playing Merlin, Houdini and H.G.Wells, and which broke all existing box office records. He is the only actor to have won an Olivier Award as 'Best Actor' at the same time as 'Best Actor in a Musical'. And then there was Hello Dolly with Barbra Streisand, The Knack, How I Won the War with John Lennon… And all this for a man whose first stage role was in an opera by Benjamin Britten!
This is a behind-the-scenes intimate portrait of one of the funniest and most versatile of actors, whose popularity in the United States outshines any other British entertainer in the last 30 years, and whose television shows in Britain are just repeated and repeated in all English-speaking countries purely by public demand.

This new DVD from director Tony Palmer telling the story of Gustav Holst is the first ever film about this extraordinary composer.


The first ever film about this extraordinary man - who taught himself Sanskrit, lived on a street of brothels in Algiers, cycled into the Sahara Desert, allied himself during the First World War with a "red priest"who pinned on the door of his church "prayers at noon for the victims of Imperial Aggression," who hated the words used to his most famous tune "I Vow to Thee My Country" because it was the opposite of what he believed, who distributed a newspaper called The Socialist Worker, whose music - especially The Planets - owed little or nothing to anyone, least of all the English folk song tradition, but was a very great composer who died of cancer, broken, and disillusioned, before he was 60.

On May 8th 1956, Look Back in Anger changed theatrical history. It’s a fact. But why? And in what ways? And could it possibly be true that Osborne wrote very little else of consequence, as some of his harshest critics maintain? And what exactly did his outbursts against the world in which he found himself really represent?
Osborne believed in an England which he saw successive governments destroying, and saw himself as almost a lone voice screaming protest - it was as simple as that. But this protest was maintained at a terrible cost, to his wives, to his professional standing, to his health, to his pocket, and eventually to his own self-confidence. He made an epic journey from the most successful playwright of his generation, to a forlorn and almost forgotten figure, railing at those who preferred to ignore him. But what was really extraordinary was that throughout that journey, he never lost the fiery power of tongues.
A unique aspect of this two-hour film is the recent discovery of extracts from some of the original stage performances of Osborne’s most famous plays, material of great historical importance not seen for almost 40 years. - Laurence Olivier in The Entertainer; Albert Finney in Luther; Nicol Williamson in Inadmissable Evidence; Robert Stephens in Epitaph for George Dillon; Jill Bennett in A Patriot for Me, with a very young John Osborne as Reidl. Apart from a behind-the-scenes look at Osborne’s Oscar-winning film, Tom Jones, other contributions are from David Hare, Richard Burton, Claire Bloom, John Heilpern (Osborne’s authorized biographer), Peter Nichols, Christopher Hampton, Jocelyn Herbert, Claire Bloom, Charles Wood, Kenneth Tynan, Tony Richardson, Natasha Richardson, Lindsay Anderson, Peter Bowles, Ben Walden, Terence Frisby, Bill Bryden, Sylvia Syms, Anthony Page and the late Helen Osborne, with extracts from other plays performed by Peter Egan and Tom Hollander.
