Brian May guitar riffs and Queen score with wild Italian costumes. Max Von Sydow in crazy Ming drag.

I read about the designer. There were hundreds of thousands of bugle beads used to construct them.
I used to do costume design so I am a nerd about this stuff.

arc lighs or in genearl the guy who drove the barney the diansaur suit made mods to it. inserted sneakers in the feet so he could walk. added a fan so he could breathe and a micro television camera and monitor so he could see where he was going.

I tried to watch it when I was about 16 but it was too weird for me. Maybe I should give it another shot.

My choice is a hidden gem(?) of a movie called "Zachariah" (1971) the first
Electric Western (so billed).
Stars Don Johnson (!) The James Gang, Country Joe and the Fish,
NY Rock and Roll Ensemble, Doug Kershaw, Elvin Jones...

and here's the full movie for the truly intrepid:

Very hard to describe but I'll try. It's
a bloody messianic allegory hiding in a hallucinogenic pornographic western. I liked it the first time I saw it back in the early '70s, but that might have had something to do with the drugs I had consumed. Years later I tried watching it straight and couldn't do it.

As there wasn't any real flow in the move I could detect. But at 18 years old and very high, much of it seemed incredibly cosmic and meaningful.

Saw it on acid on a double bill with Night Of The Living Dead. I stayed psychedelic free for several days thereafter! 😎

I'm a bit surprised to be the first.

But then most of those mentioned I have never hears of (Freaks, I had, but i had assumed the celluloid had disintegrsted decades ago.)
