The locations from Blow-Up today
After the still from the set of Performance the other day, I had hoped to show you from the set of another key sixties film, Blow-Up. And there are some on Getty Images, but none of them can can be embedded on blogs.
So instead here is a short filming showing Blow-Up's locations in the original film in 2011.
Blow-Up ostensibly shows London in the swinging sixties, but today Antonioni's take on the city and the era seems cool, continental and very much his own.
It is all a long time ago - Blow-Up was released in 1966 - but Terence Stamp still mentions his annoyance that he was dropped from the film in favour of David Hemmings in every interview he gives.
