Those clips of the Rolling Stones are currently owned or represented by Kinolibrary, a film archive agency based in East London. They license film clips to documentary makers. Their website, blog and YouTube channel are worth exploring because they have access to a vast range of obscure film footage, a lot of which relates to pop music and youth culture.
Unfortunately, Kinolibrary don’t provide detailed information online about a lot of this material. Therefore, I don’t know if Peter Whitehead directed the Rolling Stones footage or not.
I did recognise some of the film material in the Kinolibrary collections. For example, there’s some footage of Marc Bolan in the Transatlantic Films collection which is clearly from the 1970 documentary “London Rock”. However, it’s difficult to identify the original sources of a lot of the other footage.
The film Performance starring Mick Jagger and James Fox! This put together vid uses behind the scenes footage of the filming of the end scene of the film. I really want to see the lost original promo film for Shes A Rainbow.
