|A theatrical production of "Peter Pan" staged by a student named Stuart Gordon caught the mood of the isthmus. In Gordon's interpretation, Peter Pan was a hippie, Tinker Bell was gay, Captain Hook and his pirates were police, the three Darling children were the last straight kids in America, and the voyage to Never-Never Land was an acid trip portrayed by a half-hour light show in which half a dozen nude co-eds danced hypnotically to Iron Butterfly's "Inna gadda da vida." Threatened with prosecution by Dane County District Attorney James Boll, Gordon mounted the production behind locked doors in Commerce Hall. On an evening that summed up America in 1968, make-believe cops and hippies went at it on stage while real police pounded on the doors with warrants for the arrest of the producer and his nubile cast.
--From "Rads" by Tom Banks (New York: Harper, Collins, 1992)
|"Gordon's first film is pure splatstick, a knockabout zombie gorefest played dead straight by its actors, which revitalises the bit that other horror films can't reach, namely the funnybone."--Anne Billson's review of "Re-Animator" in "The Time Out Film Guide", edited by Tom Milne (Penguin Books, 1989)|
|Stuart Gordon interviewed by the Phantom of the Movies in the latter's VIDEOSCOPE (Vol. 2, No. 1), Jan. 15/Mar. 15 1996:
PHANTOM: Have you done any theater recently?
GORDON: I did a play about a year ago, called "Ghost Man", written by Wendy Hammond, about a coalminer in Utah, a Mormon. His father dies and all of a sudden he starts having all these weird hallucinations in which he becomes convinced that his father had sexually abused him as a child. Of course, everyone is telling him this is impossible, his father was one of the elders of the church....
PHANTOM: Any chance of it becoming a film?
GORDON: It's one of those things where the subject matter seems to be so upsetting to people that it's very hard to get a company to produce it. What I've noticed is that if you put something into a fantasy context, you have a better chance of getting it produced. You have to put it into a science-fiction or horror context to be able to deal with some of these things.
