The High School Of Bob Dylan Dvd:
Justreleasedin time for Bob's birthday and Dylan Days-a video tour of the high school that every Dylan fan has read about,the one with the auditorium that Dylan himself called“no small music box theater but a professional concert hall likeCarnegie Hall built with East Coast mining money withcurtains and props, trapdoors and orchestra pit.”
This is the stage of his “first appearance in a public spectacle,”namely as a young boy playing a “Roman soldier with a spearand a helmet” in a Christmas passion play.
This is the stage of his first concert appearance imitatingLittle Richard with the amps at full blast during a1958 homecoming show.
See the steps he climbed, the halls he walked, the art he viewed–the Environment that may have helped mold an icon.
Enjoy a 55 minute video tour of the most magnificenthigh school in the nation, hailed on itsdedication day of January 28, 1924, as the“Richest Gem in Minnesota’s Educational Crown.”
A video history of the founding and moving of theoriginal village of North Hibbing is also included,as are rarely seen photographs of the building ofHibbing High School.
Built at a cost of nearly four million dollars, this fabled Castle in the Wildernessstands as a tribuite to the artistic and educational values of a generation.
See for yourself what four million dollars in 1920 money can buy–solid marblewalls and stairs, nationally registered works of art, elaborately coloredrococo decorations, and a host of educational and cultural opportunities.
This DVD takes viewers on an overall tour of the school, includingportions–the superstructure above the auditorium ceiling, the dropsfor the stage, the organ loft with its 1,949 pipes, the projection booth,the original swimming pool–not seen by any casual tourist.Be aware that this DVD is a tribute to Hibbing High School,its beauty and its history–not a tribute to Bob Dylan himself.
