Dusty and Sweets McGee (1971)

December 4, 2015 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM


Dusty and Sweets McGee (1971)
Directed by Floyd Mutrux

Wishing to cash in on the youth market, Warner Bros. financed director Floyd Mutrux’s film about two young drug addicts, adrift in late 1960s Los Angeles without approving a script. Virtually plotless, and starring mostly amateur actors, Mutrux’s film meanders through sun-drenched, shiny urban landscapes, while its denizens wander from one fix to the next, spiritually dead.

Production: Laughlin, Fraker, Mutrux Productions in Association with Michael J. Parsons. Distribution: Warner Bros. Producer: Michael S. Laughlin. Director: Floyd Mutrux. Screenwriter: Floyd Mutrux. Cinematographer: William A. Fraker. Editor: Richard A. Harris. With: Tip, Nancy, Beverly, Mitch, Larry.

35mm, color, 95 min.

Hats off to Hollywood (1972)
Directed by Penelope Spheeris

Before her essential document of the Los Angeles punk scene, The Decline of Western Civilization (1981), then UCLA student Penelope Spheeris shot this groundbreaking, docu-fictional portrait of the transgender Jennifer and her friend/lover/hustler, Dana, as they make their dazzling way on the streets of Hollywood.

16mm, color, 22 min.

Kinky (1966)
Directed by James Joannides & Maurice Bar-David

16mm, color, 2 min. IN PERSON: Floyd Mutrux.
