Huh... Didn't actually think of that, but its a good idea. I was thinking a member of The Beach Boys or maybe Paul McCartney, but Dylan would be a good choice.
I was also going to suggest Dylan. But I also like Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys for the role as well.

And I have been working on a creative project for a few years that is similar. About two ASB twin brothers who create the first full-length sound and color feature films in 1926. Their first being a romantic tragedy musical with elements of Orpheus and Eurydice, Tristan and Isolde, and Romeo and Juliet. The music I was going to use would be anachronistic and be proto-rock and roll/jazz/folk covers of modern music. So, kudos to you for coming up with a similar idea for the 60's.

Honestly I was just asking myself out of boredom "What if Hadestown was made back in the 60s?".

I originally wanted someone like Vincent Price or Boris Karloff as Hades, but after consideration and comparing their singing voices with Patrick Page Hades), and considering the age of Boris Karloff, I chose Christopher Lee, both because he was menacing looking, and sounded similar enough to Patrick Page.

I am going to be honest I had never heard of the album or stage play. Until about 10 mins ago when I was looking up information for your posts. But I am a Bon Iver fan so I am about to listen to it on YouTube.

Not only that, but Christopher Lee could sing. We're talking operatic quality here...

Judy Garland and Christopher Lee in the same movie, now I’ve seen everything. Loved the concept in any case.

That probably would've sent Christopher Lee's career in very unexpected directions. OTL, in 1965, he was up to his eyeballs in Hammer Horror. A show-stopping musical like this one would've changed his career in unfathomable ways...

Images of the Tiananmen Revolution, also known as the Tiananmen War and Liberty Day, during which, saw the United States of America assisting the rebel forces, eventually ending with a rebel victory, which would see the fall of the Chinese Communist Party, and the creation of the "United Chinese Republic".

Many would question Robertson's true intentions for American involvement in the war, with many speculating that he merely entered the it to "Fight the scourge of communism".

Teddy Roosevelt and the Dinosaurs

We all know of Theodore Roosevelt. He was the 26th President of the United States, the 25th Vice President, the 33rd Governor of New York, as well as an author, conservationist, explorer, historian, naturalist,police commissioner, politician, soldier, sportsman and a few other things. However, one of those things left out of history books is that he also hunted and tamed dinosaurs. Here's a few examples now.

A painting of Theodore Roosevelt about to take on three Tyrannosaur Rex's. With a few luck shots from his gun, Roosevelt was able to shoot two of them in the heart through their soft underbellies, killing them. Roosevelt was able to restrain the third one and eventually tamed it to ride on.

Theodore Roosevelt riding on a baby Brontosaurs/Apatasourous. Teddy would figure out that taming dinosaurs as babies would be much easier than trying to tame a fully grown one.

I know! I know! This post is very ASB. Just pretend that dinosaurs somehow survived for 65 million or so years or than we somehow had the technology to clone them back to life in the late 1800s/early 1900s. I had originally planned on uploading two more images, but the website wouldn't allow them because the files are apparently "too large".

Well, I was able to crop one of the pictures I wanted to add. Well, here ya go!
