Thu 4/2 WFMU Movie Night hosted by Rich Hazelton
Privilege is Peter Watkins’ 1967 film about power, celebrity, the corruption of
church and state, and conformity. It is also a great rock ‘n’ roll film starring
Paul Jones, who sang “Do Wah Diddy Diddy” with Manfred Mann, and
Jean Shrimpton, one of the first superstar models who helped introduce the miniskirt.
Upon initial release, J. Arthur Rank, the national theatre circuit in England
would not show the film due to its “immoral nature".
This is WFMU and we really don’t give a crap about its “immoral nature.”
A great rock ‘n’ roll film is a great rock ‘n’ roll film and we’re showing it!
