Containing Multitudes Since 2004
The 60s were great. They just don't have shopping like this anymore. Jeanne looks like she just stepped out of Vogue with her new wardrobe. And if the soldiers run out of tear gas, they can just pop into The Supply Sergeant to re-stock.
There's a tonne of Mise in that Scene
Location shots always seem to catch that everyday look, you know?
Bruit on the Sunset Strip?
exactly, what riots are those? due to my age, I can only recall the Rodney King riots...
This picture was taken on Hollywood Boulevard, looking east from around Las Palmas. I assume this is from a movie. You didn't have open combat on the streets during the Rodney King riots, and when the National Guard showed up looters made themselves scarce. The riot damage on Hollywood Boulevard was some blocks farther east than this, closer to Cahuenga. An indoor swap meet was burned down.
I believe this was a staged photo session from 1970, and I would say more on it if the photographer's name didn't completely escape me (I keep circling back in my mind to Jerry Schatzberg, but I know it ain't him). In any event we're seeing, in this image, the high-end of late 60's trendiness merging with the ferment of the times in about as arresting an image as one could conceive.Put another way, Michelangelo Antonioni coulda released this as the poster for Zabriskie Point and everyone coulda skipped the movie (which is what everyone did anyway).
Did you notice that Let It Be appears to be the movie playing at the cinema on the left side of the frame? Fun coincidence, given your next post.
Not a . . . complete coincidence.(you've got the eagle's eye, monsieur)
Sorry about the double-post [some FF issues] -- Anyway, this shot is taken from Paul Mazursky's 'Alex in Wonderland' -- Alex (Donald Sutherland) is shooting a riot scene into which steps Jeanne Morreau
