  • 50th Anniversary: Don't Look Back

    One of the greatest of all music documentaries, Pennebaker captures lightning in a bottle when they film Bob Dylan's 1965 spring tour of England, just at the time he's shifting from acoustic to electric. Joan Baez, Donovan, and others make memorable appearances. The Chronicle's Music Editor, Raoul Hernandez, introduces the film.
