Still Waiting for It to Come to a Local Theatre
19 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, I saw it on one of the channels, but many years ago.

Many of the posts have commented on the music of Herman... and for me, to is always a pleasant surprise to play their "Greatest Hits" album and realize exactly how much of an impact that music had on me at age 15 and 16.

A time and place: I can remember being in (more or less) downtown Sioux City, Iowa, on a blustery day in 1966 (my mother had brought me along on a shopping trip to Big City, main focus, one of the two major department stores) when I saw this movie was being played at a theater across the center square... and there was a kid with long hair headed for that showing. I can also remember at least one thing I bought that day: an "African print" short, a beautifully bright collection of colors made (or so the little booklet said by laying hot wax on the cloth, cutting it with sharp knives and then dying it. I could still wear that shirt but it was lost a couple of years ago.
