Rare 1965 Rolling Stones film to be re-released
A rare documentary about a trip The Rolling Stones' took to Ireland just as their single "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" hit the top of the British charts in 1965 is about to get the re-release treatment.
The New York Times reports that a newly-expanded version of Charlie Is My Darling will screen at the New York Film Festival this weekend. Commissioned by the band's manager Andrew Loog Oldham and originally directed by Peter Whitehead, the 65-minute doc features the group's original line-up of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts and includes their first stage performance of "Satisfaction."
The new version was directed by Mick Gochanour and produced by Robin Klein for ABKCO Films and contains previously unseen footage. The original version was 35 minutes but Oldham re-edited a 50-minute version in the 1980s that was rarely screened. All three versions will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on November 6 under the title Charlie Is My Darling - Ireland 1965.
