Thanks, Lez. Is it worth staggering on?

Well, I got the Doors by a different route but as it's just the 2 of us struggling along, I'll give it to you!
Alvin did the poster for The Lost Boys which featured Echo & the BM's version of People Are Strange, originally by the Doors........

John Alvin was born in Hyannis, as was Robert Richardson, the cinematographer on the film 'JFK', directed by Oliver Stone, who also directed the biopic 'The Doors'. The Doors recorded 'Alabama Song' from Mahagonny, composed by Kurt Weill. (An alternative link can go from Hyannis to Kennedy's close association with the town, to the movie).

Just to say I haven't forgotten....

Mahagonny is right but the connection to it is a different musical genre.

So we're looking for a connection to Aufstieg und Fall der Stadt Mahagonny? Alvin did posters for the 1992 rerelease of Pinocchio but I don't think Geppetto carved his little boy from mahogany, so this is probably the wrong track.

Nope.
The last bit is almost wooden and leads on from something that usually is/are.

Would 'The Color Purple' be a good starting place?

Lez Lee says:
No sorry. You need a different Weill work.

Just the illusion of tumbleweed; I for one have been searching hard, but in vain...

Anything to do with Mack the Knife?

I'm pretty sure that's right. On you go Lez.

Lez Lee says:
Ah, he died in Rhinebeck, NY which is where Rufus was born.

Very generous of you Babys, thanks. Presuming it's right, of course.

I'm still looking too!

nocheese says:
Just to say - I'm still plugging away at this one, but haven't come up with a connection. Maybe Lez can do it - she's the expert!

Carradale says:
An awful lot to do with him and Rufus

nocheese says:
Anything to do with John Alvin, the film poster designer, whose first poster was for Blazing Saddles?

In reply to an earlier post on 17 Apr 2014 19:17:23 BDT
Carradale says:
Or something about the poster anyway.............
How do such posters come about?

In reply to an earlier post on 16 Apr 2014 08:04:07 BDT
Carradale says:
The poster is the link back to Rufus.

Done it! But you are right . It's a bit arse over tit.

Carradale says:
Getting a bit confused with this one myself but again quite a few of us may not have not been thinking particularly straight this week. Be back later if I can work out the linking!
