The Maysles Brothers GIMME SHELTER Original Movie Poster * ROLLING STONES * 27" x 40" Rare 2000 Mint Large Wall Size measures 27' inches wide by 40" inches high. Original Official Advance Release Theatrical Poster for the 2000 Re-Mastered DVD Criterion Collection Release. The harrowing documentary of the Rolling Stones' 1969 concert tour, with much of the focus on the tragic concert at Altamont. In December of 1969, four months after Woodstock, the Rolling Stones and Jefferson Airplane gave a free concert in Northern California, east of Oakland at Altamont Speedway. About 300,000 people came, and the organizers put the Hell's Angels motorcycle gang in charge of security around the stage. Armed with pool cues and knifes, Angels spent the concert beating up spectators, stabbing and killing at least one ( which was caught on film ). The film intercuts performances, violence, Grace Slick and Mick Jagger's attempts to cool things down, close-ups of young listeners (dancing , drugged , or suffering Angel shock), and a look at the Stones later as they watch concert footage and reflect on the killing and beatings , and what happened. A dark counterpoint to the lovefest of the film Woodstock. Cinematographer Haskell Wexler's tremendous camera work captures the connections between the Stones' hypnotic and provocative music and the drug-addled frenzy of the crowd. Directors David Maysles and Al Maysles take a hands-off approach, and the result is a disturbing look at the hellish side of the 1960s rock & roll counterculture. Gimme Shelter is one of the most gripping concert films ever made, and one of the very few to examine the dangerous interplay between performers and live audiences.
