Webster University Film Series Presents Rarely Seen Music Videos 1962-1970
September 28, 2011
What: Music Video collector Spike Priggen (of the Bedazzled.tv and Scopitones.com blogs) will present a program of rarely seen music video clips from his collection. First up is a program of "Scopitones", the almost forgotten pre-cursor to the modern music video, shot on 16mm film and shown on an early type of "Video Juke-Box". Scopitone machines were usually located in bars and lounges, allowing for a slightly more "risque" feel than one could see on TV or in the Movies at that time. The 2nd half of the program will feature newly unearthed footage originally broadcast on French TV, including early live footage of bands such as The Kinks, The Who, The Yardbirds, Them, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Otis Redding, The Moody Blues, The Pretty Things, & The Spencer Davis Group as well as clips of Nancy Sinatra, The Shirelles, Dion, Screaming Lord Sutch, Dusty Springfield, Sonny & Cher, The Electric Prunes and much much more. (Various, 1962-70, International, 90 min.)
