Via New York Times:

Mr. Whitehead’s brief was to capture the band onstage and off, so in addition to performances, he filmed interviews with the band members as well as jam sessions, clowning around and hotel-room songwriting sessions with Mr. Jagger and Mr. Richards. The film he produced, “Charlie Is My Darling,” ran only 35 minutes in its original form, and has barely been seen. Mr. Oldham re-edited the footage as a 50-minute film in the 1980s, but it too has had limited showings.

Now a new 65-minute version of the film, with a slightly expanded title, “Charlie Is My Darling – Ireland 1965,” will have its first screenings at the New York Film Festival on Saturday, with a repeat on Wednesday. It will also be shown as part of an evening in which the guitarist (and “Sopranos” star) Steve Van Zandt interviews Mr. Oldham onstage at the 92nd Street Y on Oct. 5. The new version, directed by Mich Gochanaur and produced by Robin Klein for ABKCO Films, draws on unseen footage filmed by Mr. Whitehead and is said to include the group’s first stage performances of “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”
