Classic Trailer: Bob Dylan in Don't Look Back
During the third weekend in May 1967, a strange thing happened in the cinematic world--Don't Look Back, D.A. Pennebaker's unflinching documentary on folk-rock icon Bob Dylan became the top film in the United States.
Breaking the record for all documentary releases up to that point, Don't Look Back proved to be a watershed production. Not only did it solidify Dylan's status as a rock star of the highest order, it influenced almost every music documentary that came after it.
This trailer presents the unforgettable and oft-emulated opening of the film, with wiry young Dylan flipping cue cards to "Subterranean Homesick Blues" while Allen Ginsberg loiters in the background. A proto-music video, this sequence is an absolutely pivotal rock moment.
