Event Originally produced by Zeitgeist Films in 1994.
Summary Another dazzling suburban phantasm from writer-director Todd Haynes, DOTTIE GETS SPANKED is a stylized, bittersweet nod to his childhood fascination with *I Love Lucy*. Deep in the heart of pre-hippie 1960s America, young artistically-inclined Steven Gale is obsessed with Dottie Frank, wacky star of the eponymous hit sitcom The Dottie Show. While his mother gently encourages the boy's fixation, his father grows increasingly frustrated by his son's apparently "sissified" interests. This provocative, heartfelt mini-feature anticipates Haynes’ Oscar-nominated FAR FROM HEAVEN with its excavation of placid mid-century surfaces and deeply-buried emotions. Winner of the Grand Prize at the **USA Film Festival.** *"Solid writing and appealing performers grace this 30 minute drama..." - Adam Sandler, **Variety***
