While D.A. Pennbaker’s documentary was released in the USA in 1967, it wasn’t distributed in the UK until 1970.
Alan Aldridge & Harry Wilcox were commissioned to produce the poster by the UK distributor Rita Jarvis, who Alan had previously worked with at the Sunday Times.
Despite being a black & white documentary filmed in during Dylan’s 1965 leg of his world tour- Aldridge presented him playing a guitar/woman -straight off the back of his work for Beatles Illustrated Lyrics, where depicted George Harrison playing a guitar with a weeping woman’s head for the song While My Guitar Gently Weeps.
The UK Premiere screened at the Round House in Camden, with the Pretty Things performing live beforehand. The posters apparently weren’t available for sale, hence their scarcity. As with Aldridge’s poster for Warhol’s Chelsea Girls, most of those in circulation came from Aldridge who sold them on his lecture tours.
