Renaldo, Clara and Woman in White Love Triangle

A love triangle between Renaldo/Bob Dylan, Clara/Sara Dylan and Woman in White/Joan Baez. Renaldo is confronted by the two ladies over his cheating behaviour (lol perfect role for Bob). The ladies unite against him. Notice how Joan Baez no longer speaks with the fake Gypsie accent, as if she is not really playing a character but is her real self. This blurring of characters makes the whole movie on the one hand interesting but on the other difficult to understand and follow. What do you think?

Thank you again to Kafka05 for all that work! – http://au.youtube.com/user/Kafka05

It would be insane not to finish this post off with yet another clip from ‘Renaldo and Clara’. This is Bob performing ‘Sara’. The alternate lyrics are amazing, such as “I was too young to know that you were doing it right. And you’re doing it with strength that belonged to the gods” Wow.

  1. Hej!

    What is the song in end of the video “Renaldo, Clara and Woman in White Love Triangle”. Its the clip before Sara.

    Chrissa

  2. i’m not sure.. anyone else know?

  3. The first song on that clip is Catfish performed by Rob Stoner… the second is the wonderful, never heard before or after ‘Patty’s Gone To Laredo’, an amazing take from the Rolling Thunder rehearsals, with great Dylan piano.

  4. by the way, love the site – and if you’re looking for more footage of Sara, there is some footage from the Isle of Wight in 1969, arrival and departure from airport, don’t know if it’s on Youtube though.

  5. Thank you very much for the compliment. Everybody wants to know about Sara and there is little of her on the net.

  6. I saw this opeming day in L.A .
    Bob is one without a second-

  7. Sarah is almost mythical in her own way. Shes opted to stay out of the spotlight.

    I hope you keep building the site. Bob Dylan is still somewhat unnoticed by certain people who didnt live through his time. He is in my opinion he is one of the most accomplished musician ever.

  8. I wish to obtain the complete concert by shown by BBC 1995, in any format of the Tribute to frank Sinatra which included bob dylan; van morrison roy orbison willie nelson and others. Please can you help Regards Angela
