The Rolling Stones' public image in 1965
11 November 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'Charlie is my darling' is a well-shot & valuable documentary about a Rolling Stones-tour in Ireland, back in 1965. Its title refers to drummer Charlie Watts, never one of the band's most prominent members.

Peter Whitehead's film was an idea of the RS's manager in 1965, Andrew Loog Oldham. It therefore represents Oldham's view about public relations for his band. Shown to us with undeniable quality, at a time when the RS peaked with their greatest hit '(I can't get no) Satisfaction'.

So far so good. However, when it comes to plain history, 'Charlie is my darling' clearly was never meant to make a contribution. Nothing about tensions within the band, caused by several influential girlfriends. And certainly caused by the artistic take-over by Jagger, Richards and Oldham, gradually pushing the band's founder Brian Jones out (which was to be effectuated in 1969). And it goes without saying that 'Charlie is my darling' keeps silent about the band's many sexual adventures with an unlimited number of willing female fans.
