Constantly tinkered with over the course of 10 (some say 20) years, different versions of this Texas-shot obscurity were released between 1974 and 1983 - maybe even later - under the titles IT HAPPENED ONE WEEKEND, IT HAPPENED ON SUNDAY, SCARLET WARNING 666, SCARLET LOVE, ROCKEY'S STYLE and LOVE IS DEEP INSIDE. Anything I have to say about the late, legendary d.i.y. filmmaker/con man Dr. Palmer Rockey would simply be a reiteration of what has been written elsewhere, so I've included a few informative links at the end of the post in addition to a couple of pieces I found in Dallas (1974) and El Paso (1975) newspapers. Most people in the cult of Rockey first became aware of his endlessly morphing movie through its bizarre soundtrack LP, which itself was released in two different versions -- first in 1979, then in 1980 with two bonus cuts (!) -- both times under the ROCKEY'S STYLE title. All versions of this movie have apparently vanished without a trace, but I've posted a link to the screwy soundtrack, which will be a treat for anyone who can get through Philosophy of the World in one sitting. Please read everything here and then go to the links; the story of Palmer Rockey is maddeningly incomplete, but fascinating and worthy of much further exploration.
