Director Richard Blackburn on his Lemora: A Child's Tale of the Supernatural (A Moon in the Gutter Video Upload)
Here's another vintage interview that I am really glad I held onto. This is filmmaker Richard Blackburn discussing his remarkable Lemora: A Child's Tale of the Supernatural, one of the seventies most mesmerizing and distinctive films. This terrific interview with Blackburn, in which he talks about everything from Lemora to his career and everyone from Cheryl Rainbeaux Smith to Jim Morrison, is from the long out of print VHS copy of the film that I got fifteen years ago or so. Blackburn comes across as a super intelligent and extremely nice gentleman, and this talk on Lemora is both entertaining and informative. I have broken it up into three parts and have edited out the few clips of the film that were shown to shorten it up a bit.
