Marianne - the Rock n' Roll Circus

Julian Lennon and Marianne:
So, I finally got around to doing the Marianne screen caps from The Rolling Stones' Rock N' Roll Circus (Dec 11, 1968).  She was SO gorgeous, even with that short haircut.  Marianne was stoned and nervous, miming the words to "Something Better" in her long, wine-colored gown.  I love during the end (when the Stones are singing "Salt Of The Earth") and Marianne is sitting in front of Mick - she keeps trying to hide from the camera and pull her floppy hat down to cover her face, but Mick won't have it. He teasingly pulls off her hat. It's a sweet moment.  The Rock N' Roll Circus happened right after Marianne miscarried her and Mick's child, so she was very fragile, and God only knows how upset she must have been.  I think she genuinely was trying to be out of sight.  Too bad Anita didn't star in the show, huh?! 

All photos = my screen caps

Oh my God - I have always loved the way she looked during "Rock & Roll Circus" - so ethereal, radiant, and fragile. Those close-up shots are breathtakingly beautiful. Her face was just gorgeous and her skin absolutely flawless.
You rock, Leith!

Marianne was gorgeous back then, wasn't she?

(Is it OK to admit that I've watched 'Girl on a Motorcycle' several times with the sound down...)

Je me suis permis d'emprunter à des fins non commerciales, (pour mon propre blog) une de vos photos montrant Marianne avec ce chapeau que Mick lui met sur la tête. J'ai la gorge serrée à chaque fois que je vois leurs mains s'étreindre...quel beau couple et quel triste gâchis...La drogue et la convoitise, deux sacrés adversaires de l'amour...

Mais dans un sens, je suis rassurée : malgré tout ce qu'on a pu dire, ces deux là s'aimaient. Et fort.

Je trouve ce "salt of the heart" triste à mourir. Cette fin d'émission, pleine de joie et d'émotion quand on sait que le pire allait arriver...

Et surtout, plus jamais nous ne retrouverons une génération aussi brillante. Plus jamais.

PS : si ça vous pose un problème pour la photo, dites les moi, je la retirerai.
