A film by Fred Baker
70 minutes, documentary, b/w, English, 1972
"There are no dirty words, only dirty minds." - Lenny Bruce
The outrageous, groundbreaking comic whose iconoclastic material in a conservative era got him into tragic trouble is here profiled by a close friend who prefers to remember the laughs Lenny Bruce's memory evokes instead of the tears.
With Lenny Bruce, Steve Allen, Paul Krassner, Mort Sahl, Kenneth Tynan, Nat
Hentoff & Malcom Muggeridge.
"A skillfully researched documentary about the late pop hero." - Los Angeles Times
"Fred Baker's film is honest enough to include Lenny
at his most offbeat."
"Evidence of what made Bruce such a singular phenomena
on stage and what turned him into a counterculture hero." - TV Guide
