New York Dolls – All Dolled Up
In the early 70’s, Rock Photographer Bob Gruen and his wife Nadya purchased a portable video recorder. In a period of 3 years, they shot over 40 hours of New York Dolls footage. Now for the first time ever, this footage is unveiled. The feature length documentary, All Dolled Up follows the band from their early performances in New York as such clubs as Kenny’s Castaways and Max’s Kansas City. It also documents their West Coast tour and includes footage from the Whisky-A-Go-Go, the real Don Steele show, Rodney Bingenheimer’s E Club and more. Inter cut with revealing interviews, backstage banter and late night debauchery, All Dolled Up is THE definitive document of the New York Dolls.
