This week’s Must Read isn’t about underground film at all, but it’s absolutely fascinating reading. Potrzebie has Tom Conroy’s wonderful memoir about providing movie stills to lurid men’s magazines back in the ’60s and ’70s. If you like a good story about sleaze, drug use, questionable business practices and more, then you gotta check this one out. (P.S. Can you pick out Jack Nicholson on the above cover?)
You may have already seen the Underground Film Journal promoting this on Facebook, but filmmaker Marina Lutz has started up what we think is an awesome new business: A non-union talent agency for weirdos, freaks, geeks and other oddballs called Nutjobs. If you’re one of those kinds of people/performers, get in touch to score some work.
