Charlie Is My Darling

Wondering if this movie is around in collector's circles in decent quality. I had a terrible version of this on VHS years ago. I only watched it once as the quality was pretty bad, but I remember it being a pretty neat document of the early Stones. Is it worth checking out again?

Thanks in advance

I'd rate it 7.5 out of 10. You should get it, even though it's a weird little flick.

9 of 10 for me.
ALO showed it at a symposium in Stockholm last Nov.
Great stuff, Elvis-mockin, running, time doument
mainly from an Irish tour.

I have this on bootleg-DVD, and my friend got the cover signed for me by Andrew Loog Oldham! smiling smiley He reportedly had a funny look on his face when he saw it!

"i don't know, i just like 'im!" :E

someone recently created an "upgraded" version that is miles better in terms of audio/video quality, but leaves out the interviews with Bill, Charlie and Brian.
someone really should do it right - it's a *beautiful* film.

It is a great document of the Stones '65, w/ a melancholy air provided by the OST which is either ALO-RS songbook or Keith-directed Pop Symphony versions of Stones-songs, a more 'innocent' CS Blues (imagine, only 7 years earlier!); like that film the emphasis is not the RS onstage but the 'tween time...

I recall a mob scene where the stage gets rushed by a bunch of over-excited kids. Is there much live footage? Or is it mostly the 'tween time? Man, I wish I could remember more of this film.

No live Stones music as I recall, but lots of kids & unposed Stones.

Demented Baboon doesnt even remember nine month back.
I would like to recall, though, some runnin away-scenes
from some venue. But not certain... Some ultra-short sequences with
live music... But they sure do some Elvis around the piano...

the 'running away' scenes are from Belfast's Great Northern Station - just about 50 yards from the ABC Cinema, where the Stones were playing on that tour (it's now Jury's Hotel)

there's a pretty fair amount of concert footage in it, actually, but with overdubbed sound; and also some lovely dressing room jams with genuine sound.
smile, Baboon Bro: yeah, that deeply eloquent Elvis Moment that they give us instead of interviews with Keith and Mick - beautiful! and the encounter with the Lesser Spotted Gredgewicks: "note the ruffling of the feathers ..."
beautiful film - did i say that already?

What I meant was no live music licensed for film - footage, yes.

Is that anywhere close to where you and I normally piss whilst in Belfast?

And Brian is the most interesting person in it. Worth seeing just for Brian.

right across the street, mate!

The train station (now known as Gt Victoria St station) is right behind the Europa Hotel. Jury's is just down the street - the Grand Opera House is between it and the Europa

Ah, yes - the good old Europa - the most bombed hotel in Europe, as I recall. I think that's in the promotional flyer, no?
