Bob Dylan – 1967 “Don’t Look Back” Pennebaker Script
SOLD A script, or more accurately a transcript of D.A. Pennebaker's acclaimed Bob Dylan documentary film, 'Don't Look Back.' Pennebaker's filmed document of Dylan's1965 UK tour is regarded one of—if not the–best music film ever made. After the film was finished, his company, Leacock-Pennebaker Inc., transcribed the film, creating this after-the-fact script, or as its described on the title page 'A transcript of the film but not a replacement for it. In some instances songs have been written as sung not as published.' 'Don't Look Back' was first shown at the Presidio Theatre in San Francisco on May 17, 1967. San Francisco Chronicle music critic Ralph J. Gleason, an early and important Dylan supporter (and co-founder of Rolling Stone magazine,) reviewed the film, and this transcript comes from his archive. The folder, as sent to Gleason, contains an original typed transcript of the film, and a Xeroxed revised and edited transcript. The thick paper folio has a sticker on the outside stamped 'Don't Look Back: Not For Publication. For Review Purposes Only.' This transcript was published in 1968 with modifications and photographs by Ballentine Books. As far as we can determine, this is the only example of this rare Dylan artifact. In very good condition.
