Smashing Time IP: 126.96.36.199 Posted on September 18, 2017 at 02:22:27 PM by diskojoe
Last night I finally got to see the movie Smashing Time. I first heard about it in Marshall Crenshaw's book Hollywood Rock. Sometime later I actually saw DVD copies of it on sale @ a local video store (remember those?) for $2.99 which I didn't buy since I didn't have a DVD player @ the time. Nowadays the price is a bit more. Anyway, I was @ loose ends last night & I noticed that YouTube had the whole movie & so I watched it.
I thought that it was a rather fun little movie. I enjoyed Rita Tushingham's character & the whole Swinging London vibe. Ageing Ted might be interested to know that the psych band Tomorrow w/Steve Howe & Twink are in various parts in the movie, most notably in a pie fight scene. All in all I had a Smashing Time so to speak Replies:
