Ken Russell's Self Portrait of an Enfant Terrible from SouthBank
I thought I'd never find this! Ken's interpretation of his own autobiography for The South Bank Show presented by Melvyn Bragg. Who fans will remember his great interview with Pete Townshend from the 1970's in which Mr Bragg wears a duck egg blue ruffled tuxedo shirt. Great 80's opening theme and décor.
For those new to Ken, it is worth taking a half hour so and watch this (part 5 was pulled in the US unfortunately but is visible here in the UK). Fans who have not seen this here it is! You'll see many of Ken's rare early films for the BBC REJOICE IN JOYOUS CELEBRATION!!
Welcome! My name is Super Amanda and you may already know my You Tube, hourglass figure fitness and Pin Up work. I study the life of and blog about the work of British film maker Ken Russell. Anyone can comment, you do not have to join blogger. All are welcome. Ken Russell fans and detractors alike, please chime in. If you are new to Ken Russell then you are severely parched of cultural literacy and must drink here.

"We all see film differently. Memory also has a tendency to re-edit, re-shoot and even re-dub. A line like 'Play it again , Sam', even when the original dialogue is known to be different identifies Casablanca immediately. So if you should find within these pages any descriptions that conflict with the facts, they are that way, because that's how I remember them."
