Benny, maybe you missed it but that is No9 on russ333 list above.

How about "The Wendell Baker Story" which has "When I Paint my Masterpiece" by The Band, "Wanted Man' by Johnny Cash and "I'll keep it with mine" as instrumental only. The movie also contains some other references to Mr Dylan ie Magazine cover

John From Cincinnati is utterly brilliant and I urge everyone to get the box set of the first (and only, sadly) series.

I don't know Butchie instead.

Yes indeed Bennyboy. I caught it on HBO and ended up picking it up from Amazon for like $10.

Sorry, my good sir, but I believe you will find that to be "Flashback", starring Dennis Hopper and Keifer Sutherland, which also includes Jimi H version of AATWT. It is, tho, a very good OST.

Catchfire (aka Backtrack) also stars(and was directed by) Dennis Hopper

Mea culpa, good sir! I stand corrected, and can only humbly admit my error. Both films were released in the same year (1990), which probably caused my confusion. Thanks for correcting me!

I can totally recommend it. DDL puts in a really cool acting job (as ever) as Jack and it has a hearfelt message too, perfect eco-message for the time we are living through. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it.

The soundtrack really complements the film, and has 'Boots of Spanish Leather', 'Shooting Star' and 'One More Cup Of Coffee' by our man.

You can't buy the soundtrack cos they never released one, but this might help you imagine it:

On it.. My library has a copy and I've reservered it for pickup. Thanks, Benny..

Lovely 80's studio shot of Bob to grace his home page :mrgreen: . What are Ryan O'Neal and his kids doing on there?

Given that the list of Dylan originals is looking thinner than we might have supposed, may I put forward Withnail & I, which has Hendrix's Watchtower blasting out as they hit the M1 in the Jag, bound for the Lake District, and the immortal line, "We want the finest wines available to humanity. And we want them here. And we want them now!"?

Another Hendrix Watchtower sighting/hearing - the gravediggers scene in the Hamlet film, the modern dress one which came out in 2000 with Ethan Hawke as Hamlet.

Bernardo Bertolucci used "Queen Jane Appoximately" to good effect in The Dreamers.

Regarding references, I always liked the Dylan mention in Richard Linklater's Slacker: "I'm glad they think I'm an a**hole. I don't think anyone whose ever done anything hasn't been considered an a**hole by the general populace. I mean look at Freud. Or Bob Dylan."

Since this has expanded to include TV series...

Watchtower is used in strange ways throughout the later seasons of Battlestar Galactica.

In an episode of the TV series Criminal Minds they quote Dylan ("I believe the truly natural things are dreams which nature can't touch with decay") and then end the episode with "Shelter from the Storm".

Anyone remember the old British TV play "Truly, madly, deeply"? The opening (spoken) lines of the drama were :

Early one morning the sun was shining and he was lying in bed, wondering if she'd changed at all ......

There was a drama called "The Mad House" which Dylan came over to England and acted in and sang some songs. Sadly it was destroyed by the BBC. I have a copy of a program called "Dylan In The Mad House" in which they lament the fact they destroyed it and asked if anyone had a copy. All they had was fragments and memories of those involved.

Other than "Almost Famous", Cameron Crowe used "Shelter from the Storm" at the end of Jerry Maguire and "Buckets of Rain" in his latest film "We Bought a Zoo".

In "Dangerous Minds" with Michelle Pfeiffer he tells high school students about Bob Dylan (none of them have heard of him) and teaches them "Mr. Tambourine Man" and "Let Me Die in My Footsteps".

Saw this beautiful film called "Kisses" from 2008 that references Bob Dylan a lot, and several Dylan songs are played.
