Ever since I was little I've been obsessed with the opening credits from movies. I don't know why, but I often think they're the best part of a movie. I loved the credits for Who's That Girl and Footloose. Later The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Crybaby.
One of the earliest opening credits was Georgy Girl, a mid 60's movie starring Lynn Redgrave (who was cheated out of the Oscar.) Even as a little boy I knew I was a queen and was always drawn to sissy hairdresser or sissy waiter characters in movies. I love the queen at the salon in these credits. I suppose I should be offended by these representations, but to be honest I just felt relieved to know they existed.
I'm way off track.
Anyway, I love the simple aesthetic of this credit sequence. I love the song The Seekrs wrote for the movie and I love the innocent, early feminism Lynn Redgrave displays here. I also love the idea of picking a haircut by pointing and a wig. Glamour!
This reminds me of how much I loved the opening credits for To Sir, With Love when I was little. This should be a weekly column!
