Just Jim Morrison getting ready for some football.
Then it’s the Doors!
an ancient lunatic reigns in the trees of the night
stare into the hollow idol’s eyes
"And Jim is always with us. In the air, in the ether, in the electricity. In the sounds and rhythms of Doors’ music. In the images of his poetry. In the joys and anguish of his soul, which he so publicly bared to us. In the hundreds of photos of the “young lion” that wink out at us from the collective media. In the radio’s playing of “Riders on the Storm” on rainy days across America. In a blurb in a newspaper, or a book title, or a film title using one of his lines, one of his catchphrases. And his face on the T-shirts being sold from Venice Beach, California, to San Marco Square in Venice, Italy. I have seen them. And in each new generation’s discovery of The Doors and Jim’s plea of: “Please, please, listen to me, children. You are the ones who will rule the world.” In each new generation’s quest for it’s own freedom, Jim is there. The Doors are there." - Ray Manzarek (Light My Fire: My Life with The Doors)
This isn’t Pamela, but Peggy Green, a girl who was a close friend with Jim and had an affair with him.
"I feel like Morrison just kind of knew at this point that this was the last act, and there was this deep fatigue for all things in this world that seemed to prevent him from doing the one thing that I think saved his sanity before — writing, writing poetry, and even maybe prevented him from loving the way he wanted. So along with that is the question of how this affected his relationships, most specifically of course, with his long-term girlfriend. This might sound a little mundane, but it’s some of these smaller, intimate moments that we really want to focus on, moments I think are missing in popular culture depictions of Morrison." writes Sundance alum Robert Saitzyk about his fictional film that attempts to explore the psychology of who Jim Morrison might have been at the end of his life.
