Medicine Ball Caravan - exploited Woodstock generation
I was given tickets to the premiere of this movie in 1971 in NYC.
I had made the tie-dyes that were used as background for the titles and on some of the movie posters. I got paid by the the agency that was hired to do them, but did not receive any credit. Our little tie dye outfit was called Orgasmic Enterprises and I was told that name was too risqué for the titles. Instead they used the name of the store where they had first seen my work in Huntington, Long Island - Sunshine and Co.
In any case, no sour grapes.... but the movie was truly awful and just sought to capitalize on the Woodstock generation's penchant for rock and roll and getting naked.
The best part was when they were panning through the crowd at a BB King concert in the New Mexico desert and I saw two of my best friends (Vinnie & Phil) in the crowd!
