On DVD: Bally-Master

By Mike Everleth ⋅ December 5, 2008

Yeah, I know. DVDs are typically released on Tuesdays, but I have news about one dvd that is available now.

Gary Beeber‘s fantastic documentary Bally-Master, a profile of Scott Baker, who is one of the most fun people you’ll ever meet, is now available. You can buy it directly from the official Coney Island gift shop, which is fitting since Baker is a performer there at the world famous Sideshows by the Seashore. Grab a copy, or two or three — a film about a guy who hammers nails into his nose for a living makes a fabulous Christmas gift. Seriously. This is a vastly entertaining film that I reviewed a couple of months ago and can’t recommend enough. Watch the trailer above to get a taste.

Finally, in bonus news, filmmaker John R. Hand says he hopes to self-release his most recent film, Scars of Youth, in the near future.
