Best Tv Movie Movies of 1969 : 33 ? Revolutions per Monkee

33 ? Revolutions per Monkee

5.9/10 IMDB

33 1?3 Revolutions per Monkee is a television special starring the Monkees that aired on NBC on April 14, 1969. Produced by Jack Good, guests on the show included Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, Little Richard, the Clara Ward Singers, the Buddy Miles Express, Paul Arnold and the Moon Express, and We Three. Although they were billed as musical guests, Julie Driscoll and Brian Auger (alongside their then-backing band The Trinity) found themselves playing a prominent role; in fact, it can be argued that the special focused more on the guest stars (specifically, Auger and Driscoll) than the Monkees themselves. This special is notable as the Monkees' final performance as a quartet until 1986, as Peter Tork left the group at the end of the special's production. The title is a play on "?33 1?3 revolutions per minute."

Starring: Michael Nesmith, Davy Jones, Peter Tork, Micky Dolenz, Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger, Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, Little Richard, Clara Ward ..
