The film is an early example the kind of low budget, improvisational filmmaking that would come to dominate the East Coast underground scene; like the work coming out of Warhol’s Factory at the same time (Chelsea Girls was also made in 1966), the films were a means of determining star power, fuelled more by the exploding charisma of the onscreen talent than either professionalism or the tangible construction of a story.
There was much interchange between New York and Boston at the time, and ties to the Warhol camp were numerous.
Joy Bang is one of the dozen or so actresses who heed the cattle call for Kingsley’s latest free-love art film.
While she has a small role, so does everyone else, with the exception of Mailer, the crotchety beast who unfortunately walks around shirtless in nearly every scene.
In 1967, The Who were doing nine dates on a Murray the K show at New York’s RKO theatre, billed as .
It was their first visit to the US and their blistering, stage-obliterating act causing a well-deserved frenzy in the audience.
Like Larry Kent’s High (1967), the film blends neorealist-inspired conversational sequences with psychedelic double exposures and the gyrating nightclub scenes of the anarchic free-love milieu.
Relationships are tender but also transient, and Joy Bang plays an actress who finds herself at an emotional crossroads when her sexual boundaries are called into question by her filmmaking boyfriend’s pornographic endeavors.
While far from a household name, her brief filmography was always interesting, replete with visionaries like Andrew Meyer, Woody Allen, Roger Vadim, Norman Mailer and the husband-wife duo of Jack Bond and Jane Arden.The Common bordered the historic neighbourhood of Beacon Hill, where An Early Clue to the New Direction would be shot, and where Joy Bang lived (coincidentally, on Joy Street) with her husband Paul Bang.The film is virtually plotless and shot without live sound, but exists in the leisurely then-present, with the trio drinking tea, riding bikes and featuring the Unidentified Flying Objects performing ‘I’m a Woman’ in between Townshend’s captivating monologues.The rambling film starred Joy Bang, with her long blonde tresses and obligatory mid-60s fringe, as one third of a bizarre love triangle that also included painter, poet and Factory star Rene Ricard, and his lover, played by elderly raconteur Prescott Townshend, a sort of Cambridge Quentin Crisp.
Townshend was a lifelong gay activist and an early proponent of Boston-area counterculture, which caused him to be embraced by the flower-power set who hung out in Boston Common.Joy accuses her boyfriend Ryan of ‘selling out’, and encourages him to take some time to earn his place in the business instead of rushing into a morally questionable (and then-illegal) diversion.
