Girl on a Motorcycle
A few months ago, I was at Amoeba trying to track down Jack Cardiff's 1968 film Girl on a Motorcycle starring Marianne Faithfull. I was told that the film was out of print and whenever they got a copy in, it usually sold for around $50. Imagine my surprise when I went back to Amoeba a few weeks later and saw this on the shelves for a mere $17:
The reissue is of the bare bones variety, with absolutely no special features --because really, there is nothing special about a stills gallery-- and the packaging is pretty terrible (unlike the photo above, my copy has "crazy, sexy, cool" printed on the right side of the cover for some inane reason) none the less, I'm glad this psychedelic (road) trip is back in print.
