A Well Spent Life (1971)
* Box Set contains 14 Les Blank films remastered by Criterion (average price $6.25 per film!)
Many people consider Texas bluesman Mance Lipscomb to be the greatest blues guitarist and songster of all time. This glowing portrait of the legendary musician (also life-long husband and sharecropper) is among Blank’s special masterworks. Instead of growing bitter, tough times made Lipscomb sweet. This is reportedly the favorite film of Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
A film by Les Blank with Skip Gerson
