Bob Dylan In In Harm’s Way?

From an interview posted on BobDylan.com —

Bill Flanagan: You met John Wayne in 1966. How did you two hit it off?

Bob Dylan: Pretty good, actually. The Duke, I met him on a battleship in Hawaii where he was filming a movie, he and Burgess Meredith. One of my former girlfriends was in the movie, too, and she told me to come over there. She introduced me to him and he asked me to play some folk songs. I played him “Buffalo Skinners,” “Raggle Taggle Gypsy,” and I think “I’m a Rambler, I’m a Gambler.” He told me if I wanted to, I could stick around and be in the movie. He was friendly to me.

Love that poster art by Saul Bass!

Bob Dylan On Tour, 1966.

There’s a new 12-minute promo film out to promote the new Bob Dylan 36-CD set of live recordings from his infamous 1966 tour. Bob had the shows filmed by D.A. Pennebaker — and some of that footage can be seen in this little film, The Untold Story Behind The Recordings.

This is my favorite Dylan period, and I love the “screw-you” spirit of these shows. I could watch hours upon hours of this stuff. If you any interest in Dylan at all, you really owe it to yourself to check this out.

Thanks to Dick Vincent for the tip.
