Presenting “Why The Monkees Matter” to Micky Dolenz and Dave Evans, Writer of many Monkees episodes [Photos]

Last night I attended American Cinematheque’s “50th Anniversary of the Monkees” event at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood and had the opportunity to present copies of “Why The Monkees Matter” to writer, Dave Evans and Micky Dolenz. This is the culmination of a long path in writing the book and I was very happy that I could put a copy directly into the hands of 2 people who played such a fundamental role in the creation of “The Monkees” television show — and therefore, my book.

Quotes from

“As Glick and his men storm up the hillside they are overcome by smoke from the Frodis and fall to their knees saying, “I don’t want to fight anymore. I just want to lay down on the grass and be cool.” This is, clearly, the closest comment ever made on the show in reference to the existence of the drug culture, but still the softer, safer pot-smoking culture rather than the heavier, heroin culture that was to come.

1960’s TV Censorship and The Monkees with Dr. Rosanne Welch [Video] (21:34)

1960's TV Censorship and The Monkees with Dr. Rosanne Welch

 

“1960s TV Censorship and The Monkees” gives a brief overview of where censorship standards were in the era – and how The Monkees pushed the envelope with its mentions of the Vietnam War – and Sunset Strip riots – and even with the outrageous storytelling behind “Frodis Caper”, the episode that celebrated the saving of an alien plant that very closely resembled a marijuana plant…  

Writer Treva Silverman said the staff got away with such jokes because the network executives were just old enough not to understand any of the references.

Gay, but not gay, in Breakfast at Tiffany's from A History of the Art of Adaptation

 

Transcript:

The characters exist, right? They are true. However, in real life George Peppard’s character, Turman Capote, in the book, the character’s gay. That’s why the 2 of them never end up together. It’s not a love tory. It’s a friendship. It’s a buddy story between a gay man and a woman. This is “Will & Grace” before there was “Will & Grace.” The problem is, you couldn’t do that onscreen. So, how can we show he’s doing something wrong sexually that isn’t being a homosexual. Oh! He’s a gigolo. Just like she makes her money from rich men, he makes his money from a rich woman who “keeps” him and buys him suits and that’s the perversion that he’s allowed to have onscreen and it’s with Patricia Neal, a famous actress back in the day. And I always thought that was so sad because they make her out to be this little old lady. She’s not that much older than he is actually at this moment. So, that’s kind of funny. So, that’s a huge change and to Truman Capote a huge loss in his particular story.    

About this talk

Dr. Rosanne Welch (RTVF) speaks on the craft of history of film adaptations from the controversy of the silent film Birth of a Nation (protested by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in 1915) to Breakfast at Tiffany’s (to which author Truman Capote famously said, “The only thing left from the book is the title”) to The Godfather . Naturally, the behemoth in adaptation – Harry Potter (which depended on the relationship created by adapter Steve Kloves and author J.K. Rowling) will be discussed, as will the subject of this month’s celebration: Dune.
