    Reader comments on Mayor of the Sunset Strip

    Subject: Re: MAYOR OF THE SUNSET STRIP
    Date: Nov 8, 2005
    Sender: Ronald VaughanPrevious | Next

    And after 2006 RODNEY BINGENHEIMER is going to
    get his coveted "Star" on the Hollywood Walk of
    Fame!!

    Past time for somebody who DISCOVERED HALF THE
    ACTS IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY!

    Again, I hope that somebody with LOTS of money
    to burn will come forward and RE-CUT THIS MOVIE!

    "Mayor of the Sunset Strip" was like a gold mine.
    It STILL needs to be re-exploited...This multi-
    faceted story just can't be told in just 90 min-
    utes!!

    Response to this comment:
    MAYOR OF THE SUNSET STRIP

    Hey, neat review!

    Being IN this film, though, I've got to correct
    one "Hollywood-ized" remark made in it, though:
    Rodney Bingenheimer was NOT dropped off at Connie
    Stevens' house by his late mother (Marian B.) as
    Kim Fowley said...this was a George Hickenlooper
    FABRICATION...otherwise, the film's true-to-form
    more or less.

    But it should be re-cut and expanded....for exam-
    ple, where are interviews with ex-Go-Go's? ex-
    Bangles? and Zolar-X (from Tom Snyder "Tomorrow"
    Show?)

    Where are MY outtakes talking in my then-house
    on Harold Way, remarking how the late psychic
    Peter Hurkos indicated I should seek out an
    "actress-singer-musician" (the explanation of
    my trying to find Jennifer Love Hewitt)?

    This was a good movie....but it could have been
    GREAT...it deserved better than it got. FYI: The
    original distributor was to have been Paramount,
    but First Look Pictures paid more money for it...
