The X-rated 1969 short he starred in, The Image, has surfaced online
David Bowie fans will be fascinated by The Image, his first short film dating back to 1969, which is about an artist's painting that comes to life and haunts him. It's all very dark, atmospheric and low-budget with Mr. B starring as the bouffant haired apparition. His co-star, Michael Byrne, went on to feature in the likes of Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade, Apt Pupil, Braveheart, Coronation Street and Casualty.
Due to the violence at the end and hints of homo-eroticism, it got an X certificate when it originally came out.
