Riot on the Sunset Strip | Terry Southern's CANDY
Thursday, August 6 – 7:30 PM @ The Egyptian
One of the most wildly underrated films of the 1960s, CANDY uses the pornographic adventures of an innocent teenage sexpot (played by Swedish bombshell Ewa Aulin) on an odyssey across America as an opportunity to satirize the military, 1960s hippie idealism, middle-class morality and more. Songs by The Byrds and Steppenwolf, along with Dave Grusin’s amazingly good pop-psychedelic score.
Introduction to the screening by Domenic Priore and Chuck Zigman (a mentee of Terry Southern).
