Naw, actually, it was twenty-FIVE years ago today, that producer Robert
Stigwood had a flea placed in his ear by SOMEBODY, (maybe
Dee Anthony, who repped both the Bee Gees AND Peter Frampton at the
and the flea said: "What is the greatest rock-and-roll album of all time?
Who right now are the greatest, most popular music stars? And how can you
possibly lose if you combine them both?"
Answer that question with a question: How could you possibly
To those who decry the defacing of a sacred cow, first of all, and pay
attention to this, people: THIS MOVIE IS A PRODUCT OF ITS TIME. Nothing
the late Seventies succeeded (or exceeded, as it were) like excess. If
was good, then bigger was even better, and the King of Media Overkill was
Robert Stigwood at this period. Which was his standout quality, and his
company's undoing. (Not to mention the undoing of quite a few careers
Second of all, as it has already been pointed out, the timing SUCKED,
moreso than the movie itself. The SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER backlash was just
beginning with PEPPER'S release, and even though Peter Frampton had
himself still able to chart with such current hits as his cover of
Sealed and Delivered" and "I'm In You," (please hold your snickers), his
album sales had begun to wane, a surefire indicator that his status as a
pretty-boy guitar god was fading fast.
For the most part, the audience demographic the movie was aimed at was
served as well as they could be. None of the teenybopper females in the
theater audience I saw it with, (yes, I DID see it in a theater), gave
whisker on a rat's bee-hind that the album the movie was derived from was
classic, or that George Martin actually produced the soundtrack (well,
of it.) They sighed in rapture on cue when a dreamy closeup of The
Gibb or Frampton came whizzing by, or sobbed uncontrollably at the
'oh-my-GAWD-this-is-so-maudlin' ending. I swear, THIS is the audience the
producers should've seen it with, when the reviews came in chopping the
entire project to shreds.
So, for a movie that represents everything that was both bad AND good
That Decade simultaneously, was there anything of merit to observe? YES.
First of all, for the most expensive musical ever made in its day
the bill" at a whopping $60 mil plus), every cent is evident on-screen.
Roizman (who shot THE EXORCIST) managed to get every shot right, even if
pastels were enough at times to send an epileptic into grand mal
and there was enough condescending sweetness for twelve diabetic
Also, contrary to the rabid rantings of Beatlemaniacs everywhere, the
soundtrack is the best part of the movie. I guess what makes it so hard
most people to watch, are the scenes that are almost painful indicators
what the movie COULD'VE been, because the energy and drive is so
from the rest of the goings-on.
Meaning Aerosmith's ball-busting cover of "Come Together," the
finger-snapping, funk-injected "Got To Get You Into My Life" from Earth,
Wind and Fire, and Steve Martin's super-manic "Maxwell's Silver Hammer,"
echoing his even better turn to come in LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS. No matter
how much the remainder may induce severe bouts of wincing and cringing,
these moments almost redeem Henry Edwards'
I bought this (and I'd be embarassed to tell you how much I spent) for a
So-Bad-It's-Good movie party I decided to throw for some friends on New
Year's Eve. Just to see if it was as bad as I remembered, (and as bad as
people have credited it to be), I gave it a spin just for old time's
Time does heal old wounds, I guess, and as much as I snickered, groaned
chortled at the outlandishness of it all, I have to admit that at the
least, I was entertained. Kind of like when you're watching virtually
nothing on Saturday night, until a rerun of "Donnie and Marie" comes on
At Night. And though you'd never tell your friends you did, you watched
every painfully corny moment of it...and actually enjoyed
So that's how I think of PEPPER now, as a very secretively guilty
And for those reading that last line and yelling "Is he CRAZY??? This is
BLACK HOLE OF MUSICALS!!" I can only say this: you have not lived as long
I have, or seen as many movies to be able to make that statement with any
kind of confidence.
How do I know? Let me ask you: have you ever seen the musical version of
LOST HORIZON? Mae West in SEXTETTE? Lucille Ball in MAME? Go sit through
even ONE of those, boys and girls. I dare you. We can talk about really
musicals after you've weathered THAT ordeal. I did...and lived to tell
