Ladies and Gentlemen, The Rolling Stones

Ladies and Gentlemen, The Rolling Stones

The Rolling Stones’ triumphant return to the big screen after the tumultuous Gimme Shelter (1970). Filmed on 16mm and in Quadrasound over two hot summer nights in Texas as The Stones supported their latest release—double-album Exile on Main Street, since considered one of rock’s benchmark works—the band tears the roof off with the help of longtime saxophonist Bobby Keys and pianist Nicky Hopkins. Ladies and Gentlemen rips the joint with the immortal five-piece, still featuring guitar wunderkind Mick Taylor tearing through a set of ragged blues and rock.

DIRECTED BY: Rollin Binzer. WITH: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman. 1974. 83 min. USA. Color. English. Rated PG. DCP.
