Home ] Up ] Honourable Mentions - "Blowin' In The Wind" Menu page ] [ Honourable Mentions Video ]

 This page contains video items that aren't eligible for the main Searching For A Gem VHS & DVD lists because Bob does not personally perform on them, but are nevertheless of interest to Dylan collectors. There's no specific qualification for inclusion other than I have the item or it's been notified to me by a contributor as having a noteworthy Dylan connection. All candidates for inclusion will be assessed on their merits! Honourable Mentions audio items are here. All Honourable Mentions items with covers of Blowin' In The Wind are now here.

If you have any entries to add to the list or additions/corrections to existing entries, please let me know! Please note I cannot value your Dylan rarities - see the Mission page for reasons why. Contact the dealers on my Trading page for assistance!

Chrome Dreams DVD-CVIS 366 (UK) - picture from "Isis" web-site
About this release, Derek Barker says: "It's another Chrome Dreams release, in association with Isis Magazine as well as being released by Chrome Dreams/Isis , I worked as the researcher for the project, which hopefully is part one of a three part series that will cover Dylan from birth to today. There is no Dylan music, it is purely an historical documentary film. We interviewed two or three people that have not been seen or heard before as well as few of the usual suspects. There are 13 interviewees in all, and that includes Clinton, C.P Lee and me."

This unauthorised documentary will be sold in the UK and the USA.

Thanks to Bob Stacey for finding this item. I'll add more information when I've had time to watch it! Thanks to Alexandre Froemming for the Brazilian release.

"Factory Girl" - US feature film released 2 Feb 2007; DVD release:  Paramount Home Entertainment (catalogue number?) (USA), 17 Jul 2007; Paramount Home Entertainment PHE 9353 (UK), 10 Sep 2007:


Paramount Home Entertainment PHE 9353 (UK) - front of DVD insert (my copy)
The UK press reported in Nov 2004 that Sienna Miller was set to star in a biography of Edie Sedgwick to be called "Factory Girl", due then for release in mid-2005. The film, to be directed by George Hickenlooper, reportedly "revolves around an unconventional love triangle of sorts that developed between Edie Sedgwick, Bob Dylan and Andy Warhol". Bob Dylan's lawyers made moves to stop the project, and the Bob Dylan character (played by Hayden Christensen of "Star Wars" fame) was renamed Billy Quinn (as of course in Quinn The Eskimo and also the lawyer character played by Richard Gere in the musical "Chicago"). The film was eventually released in 2007, with no mention of Bob by name or use of Bob's music. The fact that the character played by Hayden Christensen wore a corduroy cap and played a guitar and a harmonica in a holder was purely coincidence...

Thanks to Jack Guerreiro for information about this DVD. It looks as if it is Part 2 of the 2006 Joel Gilbert documentary Bob Dylan 1975-1981: Rolling Thunder and The Gospel Years and will therefore contain footage from the 1979-81 tours without sound for copyright reasons.
