Freak Out! My Life with Frank Zappa
The movie is enhanced by reading the Screen play. You will pick up details that were just implied in the movie. Also the background introduction by Sheridan Morley gives you information on how the short play that was part of a series became a classic movie. The book contains stills of the movie. You'll find the screen play just as emotional as the movie however you will have to supply your own copy of Rachmaninoff's Concerto no. 2 in C minor.
Frankly,it has been sheer magic! A great professional cast adds a realism dimension that enables it to stand in it's own right. Just close your eyes,relax,and let youself be transported into the world of two individuals who meet and fall in love,when the terms 'lady' and 'gentleman' really meant something... Treat yourself to the radio delight,you won't regret it.
