Wow, welcome to old news...

 

"Un Chien Andalou" by Dali and Luis Buñuel, it's not hard at all to come by.

It should be in smaller video rental stores, hopefully near a college campus. Any place that could possibly have an art film section should carry it.

 

The movie is actually pretty short, less than 20 minutes. I wouldn't be surprised if you could find it compressed somewhere online.

Thanks Mamerro, but I had pretty well exhausted all of those options when I had been looking for it earlier. The only place I found that had it was a special order laserdisk situation that wasn't worth the effort.

Sal. Dal.

 

Un Chien Andalou was directed by louis bunuel and salvador dali helped with the art direction/script/ weird ideas_i have it on vhs and it's pretty disturbing at parts.

i think there's another film by bunuel where dali gave some input, but i might be wrong ...no, la age d'or is the film ...i'll have to look it up look at imdb.com

 

Dali also did the sets for alfred hitchcock's Spellbound. those sequences are really really cool.

 

there are two Dali documentaries...one is narrated by orson welles...i can't remeber the names but one of the two is totally bonkers and a fantastic watch. you realize just how weird he was...i mean really strange.

 

Dali was also supposed to appear in an Alexandro Jodorowsky production of Dune that was never made.

For more on the behind-the-scenes of that film, and on how much of a weirdo he was, in his own words, read "The Secret Life of Salvador Dali".
