The Movie: Blow-Up (1966)
What Is It?: Michelangelo Antonioni uses a shaggy-dog murder mystery as a way into critiquing the superficiality of Swinging London culture, inadvertently glorifying its great music (The Yardbirds impersonate The Who), fashions, and free-love ethos.
Why Today?: On this day in 1934, iconic Swinging London fashion designer Mary Quant is born.
