The Doors - Copenhagen 8mm Color Footage


Silent color 8mm footage shot during the late show by Henrik Skjoldager at the Falkoner Centret in Copenhagen on September 17th, 1968. While The Doors were captured on film extensively during their European tour, this is the first instance of an audience 8mm film made during a performance. Running at approx. 2:47, the film features an introduction using a concert ticket from the show, a smiling John Densmore, and The Doors 'execution' scene that had become a concert staple in 1968 while performing The Unknown Soldier. The few remaining seconds of the film depict what is likely a segment of The End as Jim appears to spot a 'moth' on the stage. While current copies of the film are sourced from a VHS tape, the filmer is known and may be in possession of the original 8mm film.
