I want Candy


December 3, 1967

  1. That's Swedish actress Ewa Aulin (who played "Candy Christian") in the second and fourth photos. I saw "Candy" in a Dallas theater with a buddy of mine when it first came out, either in late 1968 or early 1969. We were both 16 or 17 and, after watching the film, I was amazed that we'd been allowed inside the theater at that age. It was the raciest film I'd ever seen -- but with a cast featuring Ringo and a slew of top stars like Marlon Brando, Richard Burton, Walter Matthau and John "Gomez Addams" Astin (as Candy's father), who knew? We left the theater at the end feeling far more "educated" than when we walked in!
