The rarely seen Rolling Stones tour documentary Charlie is my Darling--Ireland 1965 is premiering Saturday at the New York Film Festival and new details have emerged about a "super deluxe" box set version of the movie that will be released in November.
The special box set will include versions of the director's cut and producer's cut of the movie as well as two audio CDs -- a soundtrack CD and a separate CD of previously unreleased, live recordings of 13 songs.
In addition, the box will contain a 10-inch vinyl version of the live material, a replica poster for the Stones’ 1965 Belfast concert featured in the movie and a 42-page hardcover book containing 14 never-before-seen photos and replicas of contemporary newspaper articles. The set is due November 6 when standard Blu-ray and DVD editions of the movie also will be released.
Charlie is my Darling was produced by the Stones' ex-manager Andrew Loog Oldham and directed by Peter Whitehead. Oldham and Steven Van Zandt will also host a screening and Q&A at New York’s 92 Street Y on October 5.
Originally shot on a Stones weekend tour in Ireland in 1965, the revamped movie has been expanded from 35 to 65 minutes including the group’s first stage performances of “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.” According to a press release, "Charlie is my Darling is an intimate, behind-the-scenes diary of life on the road with the young Rolling Stones featuring the first professionally filmed concert performances of the band's long and storied touring career, documenting the early frenzy of their fans and the riots their live performances incited."
Broadcast premieres are being scheduled in November in America and Great Britain as well as worldwide theatrical screenings
