8MM AUDIENCE COLOR FILM



Tamalpais Mountain Theater

Info:

Color footage of The Doors at the Tamalpais Mountain Theater in June, 1967, filmed by audience member Steve Brown on an 8mm camera stationed near the back of the theater. This is one of two known sources of footage, the second appears in a German documentary and features film shot from the stage and the audience. (See Below)


16MM BLACK AND WHITE FILM



Tamalpais

Info:

16mm B&w silent footage of The Doors at the Tamalpais Mountain Theater in Marin County, California. Approximately fifty seconds of footage are known to collectors, however other sources indicate there may be a total of four minutes. While a camera crew was hired by KFRC to film the festival, the crew responsible for this black and white footage is hired by filmmaker Jurgen Schroder-Jahn of Germany for his short film Die Herren Von Morgen - Hippies, and are said to have shot over 30 minutes of footage at this venue along with original native audio recorded on a Nagra. The film crew also attends a second performance that evening at the Fillmore Auditorium, focusing mainly on the audience and the light show, however the footage may in fact have been shot the night before. The original audio accompanying the Tamalpais Mountain Theater footage are segments of When The Music's Over and Break On Through. Reports from recent years indicate that the original filmwork and audio from this show was destroyed to make room in the archive it was stored in. See the next listing below for more information on the Fillmore footage.

LOST FILM



Tamalpais

Info:

KFRC Program Director Tom Rounds hires a film crew to document this early music festival in 1967, and previously known color footage shot by Steve Brown, and photographs by Gene Anthony show multiple cameras filming The Doors during their performance at the Tamalpais Mountain Theater on June 10th, 1967. Although various segments of footage have already surfaced from this show, these photographs and reports indicate that more footage was shot and may still exist. The current whereabouts of any master footage shot by the hired film crew are unknown.
