113. "Michael Nesmith is actually the father of the music video...."

What about Bob Dylan flipping the cards with the lyrics to "Subterranean Homesick Blues?"

Subterranean Homesick Blues

One of Dylan's first 'electric' pieces, "Subterranean Homesick Blues" was also notable for its innovative film clip, which first appeared in D. A. Pennebaker's documentary, Dont Look Back.


I am not a big Dylan fan, so I have to accept at face value the statement that the clip first appeared in a documentary a long time after it was made. I am sure that it was shot on film, and not video. Whatever video there was at the time was probably about 2" wide and required a huge amount of supporting equipment.
