HEY HEY WE’RE THE MONKEES with DAVY JONES, PETER TORK, MICKY DOLENZ and MICHAEL NESMITH
A great documentary that relives the Monkees’ story through 1997. The video isn't narrated. Instead, bits and pieces of interviews from several key players are strung together to tell the Monkee story. These "key players" include all four of the Monkees, Don Kirshner, Ward Sylvester, and many others. One interesting facet of presenting the Monkees story in this way is that each of the Monkees' interpretation of what the Monkees were is a little different from the others; the years since their massive initial success and pressures have colored each of their perceptions, as would they color our own. It’s not RASHOMON, but seeing the phenomenon from several different viewpoints offers great illumination. Also, lots of videos and clips from the show are included.
Davy tells the "salad story" that breaks the ice between the four of them. Mike recalls a great Monkeemania moment--the guys being chased by the masses at a Cincinnati concert. Micky's story involves being discovered in a London park early one morning by pre-teen girls the night after the Beatles threw them a party. Peter talks about Jimi Hendrix as an opening act for their 1967 tour. There is also the infamous story about Mike punching his fist through a wall, which is relived by Mike, Micky, Davy, and Don Kirshner himself. (Just to be clear--each relates the story in SEPARATE interviews. They were not all in the same room. You wouldn’t want Mike and Donnie in the ring again.) And many, many more stories from the days when all America was crazy for these four guys.
Well-done and a must for any Monkee fan.
