ca. 1980 Bruce Goff BBC Doumentary

Post by DRN »

At this Mississippi Preservation page is a link to an early '80's BBC documentary that may have been posted before. It is a good survey of Goff's life and work including an interview with Eugene Bavinger in which he walks through his house. Enjoy...I certainly did.

Yes ... truly fascinating. Particularly interesting was his response to the question of how he fit into the conservative town of Tyler, Oklahoma where he lived: "I don't".

At 44:39-44.45 the viewer is given the impression that Goff is standing next to Frank Lloyd Wright, but was that actually Lloyd Wright?

Yes - it's at Unity Temple in connection with Lloyd's 1971 resurfacing. You can date it by the outfit at left.

I saw a documentary on pbs that contained parts of this film, Telos: The Fantastic world of Eugene Tssui ,His student shown in the film. Tssui's work makes Bruce Goff seem almost conventional. His story is quite compelling and if anyone runs into it give it a view, if you are interested in fantasy.
