A BIT OF HISTORY: ‘ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE’

In May 1966 Allen Klein purchased the film rights to this novel by author Dave Wallis for the Stones. Andrew Oldham had chosen this story because he found the plot of violent and rebellious youths taking over Britain to be the perfect subject matter for the Stones. Oldham and Klein planned to coproduce the movie, which Decca would finance, with the Stones getting $1 million. In fact it was announced that the movie would go into production at MGM’s Boreham Wood Studios in the fall of 1966, but then it never happened.
