ABKCO FilmsA restored, updated version of the rarely seen Rolling Stones tour documentary Charlie Is My Darling -- Ireland 1965 will premiere on September 29 at the 2012 New York Film Festival. The film, which originally debuted in 1966, will be shown at New York City's Walter Reade Theater.
Charlie Is My Darling was produced by ex-Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham and directed by Peter Whitehead, who traveled with The Stones during a brief tour of Ireland and captured the legendary rockers performing such early hits as "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," "The Last Time" and "Time Is on My Side." The flick was restored by Mick Gochanour and Robin Klein, who also were responsible for preparing the group's 1968 TV special Rock and Roll Circus for official release. The revamped movie will include previously unseen extra footage.
Charlie Is My Darling will be given an encore screening at the same cinema on October 3. The film will be released on DVD, Blu-ray and as part of a special box set on November 6.
Meanwhile, RollingStone.com has shone a little light on what Mick Jagger was doing in a Paris studio this past week. A photo of the singer holding an electric guitar was posted on The Stones' and Jagger's Facebook pages with a message that read, "Had fun in the Paris studio this week!" RollingStone.com reports that all of The Stones were photographed coming out of a recording studio in the French capital on August 21, although just what it is they're working on remains a mystery.
