About this item
Like the rest of America, Hollywood was ripe for revolution in the late sixties. Cinema attendance was down; what had once worked seemed broken. Enter Bob Rafelson, Bert Schneider, and Steve Blauner, who knew that what Hollywood needed was new audiences - namely, young people - and that meant cultivating new talent and new ideas. Fueled by money made from their invention of the superstar TV pop group the Monkees, they set off on a film-industry journey that would lead them to form BBS Productions, a company that was also a community. The innovative films produced by this team between 1968 and 1972 are collected in this box set - works created within the studio system but lifted right out of the countercultural id, and that now range from the iconic ("Easy Rider", "Five Easy Pieces", "The Last Picture Show") to the acclaimed ("The King of Marvin Gardens") to the obscure ("Head", "Drive, He Said", "A Safe Place").
