Tiny Tim’s Non Stop Luna Park Marathon Is Now Available To Watch On Planet Blue Pictures!

Bookmark and Share
Tiny Tim is a mastermind of show business and a master of popular songs. He was an iconic American singer highly acclaimed for his bizarre renditions of contemporary songs in the 1960s and known for his long hair and white make-up, he was generally considered a one-hit wonder for his song Tiptoe through the Tulips. Tiny believed that the world wasn’t ready to see him as anymore than a freak. This is where Martin Sharp played an important role for shaping Tiny Tim into the iconic legend he is today. Tim says, “I know Mr. Sharp believes in me so much – and I praise the Lord for that – and maybe he’s made a cult movie which at the very least will survive as a museum piece. But Mr. Sharp, I think, is interested more than ever in my thoughts on this world and its cataclysmic times, on my fundamentalist spiritual attitudes.”

Martin Sharp was an Australian artist, underground cartoonist, songwriter and filmmaker. He was Australia’s foremost pop-artist, with psychedelic posters of famous musicians such as Bob Dylan and Donovan being classic of his style. Sharp has also worked with Tiny Tim, following his musical career with a singular and unique obsession. After Tim’s initial ‘fame flame’ had burnt out, Sharp was the man to reignite the fire. Sharp believed in Tiny Tim more than anyone else, focusing on Tim’s views of the world, his spiritual attitudes and his thoughts. He spent many long hours interviewing Tiny Tim, recording him, and basically piecing his life together, all in order, to produce his grandest ambition: a two-hour film about Tiny Tim. Sharp filmed Tim singing live at his incredible non-stop performance at Sydney’s Luna Park. Sharp says: “I went to see Tiny at the Albert Hall and was quite amazed by him. And the amazement hasn't ceased”. His show at Luna Park broke records for being the longest performance without a break. In total, the show went for 2 hours and 15 minutes. Sharp says about the film that “it was an amazing moment of where his art and his religion came together at that moment. I'm interested in those moments.”

Sharp says that Tiny Tim taught him a lot about religion: “I wondered why he had such a great attitude, even though when he sort of was dropped from the peaks of show business, because he was really right up the top there, and he sort of just seemed to vanish, which is when I started working with him. And I wondered where his good cheer came from, and he was quoting scriptures often. And I found it interesting. So not many people in my life were quoting scriptures at all, no-one I don't think, actually.”
