E. L. Anger

"In 1978, Anger re-cut his landmark 1954 film, Inauguration Of The Pleasure Dome by several minutes as well as changing the score of the film he had previous selected, Glagolitic Mass by the Czech composer Leoš Janáček. This re-constructed version, offered here today features Anger's choice of the 1974 Electric Light Orchestra album, 'Eldorado' as score. This edition of the film would be labeled by Anger as his 'Sacred Mushroom Edition'. Anger successfully screened this E.L.O. version of the film at the 1978 Boston Film Festival. This festival exhibition would be the only time in history this version of Anger's film had been seen, until now."

Be sure to keep and eye out for Anaïs Nin as 'Astarte' and Marjorie Cameron (famous occultist and wife of Jack Parsons) as 'The Scarlet Woman.'
