Only a Blue Meanie could hate George Dunning’s limited animation classic, which screwed the pyschedelic cap onto the 1968 toothpaste that also included Kubrick’s 2001 and predated MTV music videos by some 12 years.
About George Hickenlooper
Writer-director George Hickenlooper‘s feature film credits include Factory Girl, about Andy Warhol and his muse, Edie Sedgwick; the internationally acclaimed documentary, Mayor of the Sunset Strip, the psycho-sexual drama The Man from Elysian Fields, The Big Brass Ring, a political thriller adapted from an Orson Welles screenplay, and Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse for which George received a directing Emmy. His interest in movies and filmmaking began in childhood – stemming in part from his Great Uncle’s (conductor Leopold Stokowski) involvement with Disney’s Fantasia. On October 30, 2010, George died suddenly in Colorado while prepping for the Denver Film Fest premiere of his last film, Casino Jack. All of us connected to this site will always treasure our relationship with George, a true cinema buff who revered film history enough to join us here at Trailers from Hell.
