BACKGROUND

The Great Blondino!

Sture Dahlström (1922-2001)

In the novel “The Great Blondino” (1987) we get a friend in the dancer and avant-garde filmmaker Frans Eric von Fitzenstrahl and his many projects; his eruptive film arrangements and convulsive conquests of women and so much more.

Fitzenstrahl (called The Great Blondino) lives in a makeup lodge in a combined theatre & brothel in Paris with his books, his Bolex film camera and his clipboard.

He arranges experimental film screenings in a small neighbourhood salon with thirty projectors running simultaneously from all directions, the film can be seen everywhere, on walls, ceilings—on the heads of the audience! He seduces a great amount of women, the prima donna Erika von Herrlichhausen, the Finnish Lotta, the Latin American poetess Josefita Castrato…

Every now and then he improvises the Nobel Fake: He finds literary societies in the USA, Spain, Italy and in France pretending to be one of the members of the Swedish Academy who is out looking for Nobel Prize candidates. This way he gets large bribes to stay in the best hotels, to eat the most luxurious dinners & drink those…

His specialty as an avant-garde filmmaker is double exposures. And triple exposures and up to ten times the overlays on one and the same strip.

He travels to Cannes where he gets money to start one of the biggest avant-garde movie projects ever—with two hundred thousand extras! His movie is completely improvised, of course, without a script, even without film in the camera. What he does is spectacle, he stage-manages revolts!

Den Store Blondino/The Great Blondino was chosen by the Sture Dahlström Society in Sweden to be Sture Dahlströms best creation ever.
