Art of the Double Feature #3

Robert Downey’s Chafed Elbows (1966) was one of the few films from the American Underground to play ‘legit’ theatres, paired with Kenneth Anger’s Scorpio Rising (1964) by Impact Films.

Criterion is planning an early Robert Downey Sr. Eclipse series set for next year, that goes up to Putney Swope. Can't wait to finally see Chafed Elbows (especially after catching his Q&A at All Tomorrow's Parties).

Also funny to learn that Downey lives just around the corner from the Criterion office, and frequently hangs out there, shooting the breeze and borrowing a movie or two.

I saw this double feature @The Rialto Theatre (or was it the Criterion?) in Durham, NC in '68 maybe. Or some other year around then.
