Edgeplay: A Film About the Runaways

2004

Edgeplay: A Film about the Runaways is a 2004 documentary film that was produced and directed by former Runaways bassist Victory Tischler-Blue. Edgeplay chronicles the history of the all-teenage-girl rock band The Runaways, whose members included future rock stars Lita Ford and Joan Jett.[1][2] The movie premiered as part of filmmaker Allison Anders' 2004 "Don't Knock the Rock Film and Music Festival".[3]

Kim Fowley, the band's original manager, originally asked for $10,000 appearance fee in order to appear in the film, but eventually agreed to appear for free if he could sing his answers to questions, with a guitarist accompanying him. Vicki Blue agreed and this is how his appearance was originally shot. However, he then informed her that each of his answers was a song that would require a separate license. Fowley was shooting a segment for VH1 at about that time, so Blue sent her questions to the VH1 folks, who agreed to let her use their footage.[1] The film ultimately casts blame on Fowley for the Runaways' breakup.[4]

Conspicuously absent from the movie was Joan Jett, who refused to participate in interviews or allow any of her music to be used, and as Jett wrote or co-wrote most of the Runaways music, very few of the band's songs were able to be used on the soundtrack, which had to feature musical contributions mostly performed by Lita Ford or Suzi Quatro.

In a 2006 interview with the Montreal Mirror, Joan Jett said:

Shortly after the film was released, Sandy West, the band's drummer was diagnosed with cancer. She died on October 21, 2006.[7]
