The Movie: Charlie Is My Darling (1966)
What Is It?: The Stones were too uncontainable to put in a Hard Day’s Night style scripted romp, so Andrew Oldham made them the somewhat unwilling subjects of a documentary instead. Mick and Keith are the hammy ones, Bill the noncommittal one, Brian the fey and articulate one, and Charlie the inarticulate, possibly self-loathing one. He’s also my darling.
Why Today?: On this day in 1941, Charlie Watts is born.
