Charles Bukowski Documentary From 1973

Buk from Django's Ghost on Vimeo.

Bukowski was directed by Taylor Hackford in 1973 and broadcast on KCET in Los Angeles. Hackford’s film was responsible for bringing Bukowski to a wider audience. It was said to have been lost forever, but remastered clips from the film appeared in the recent Bukowski documentary Born Into This. So, there must be a good master somewhere. Until an official version of this is re-released, here’s the best that is available.

Salacious B. Crumb Print by Rhys Cooper

Salacious Crumb is one of the first characters I brought up when brainstorming for the STAR WARS series. There are several things that make him stand out from the other characters in Jabba’s Palace and one of those is his design. Remembering how crazy detailed Rhys was with his past posters for us, we decided to let him attack Salacious. Here is what Rhys had to say about the project:

“I always thought Salacious Crumb is the kind of character that makes Star Wars great. Little personalities like his are what give the galaxy far far away its depth and diversity.”
