Blowup, or Blow-Up, is a 1966 film directed by Michelangelo Antonioni about a fashion photographer, played by David Hemmings, who believes he has unwittingly captured a murder on film. It was Antonioni's first entirely English-language film. The film also stars Vanessa Redgrave, Sarah Miles, John Castle, Jane Birkin, Tsai Chin and Gillian Hills as well as sixties model Veruschka. The screenplay was by Antonioni and Tonino Guerra, with English dialogue by British playwright Edward Bond. The film was produced by Carlo Ponti, who had contracted Antonioni to make three English-language films for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The plot was inspired by Julio Cortázar's short story, "Las babas del diablo" or "The Devil's Drool", translated also as "Blow Up" in Blow-up and Other Stories, and by the life of Swinging London photographer David Bailey. The film was scored by jazz pianist Herbie Hancock. The music is diegetic, as Hancock noted: "It's only there when someone turns on the radio or puts on a record." Nominated for several awards at the Cannes Film Festival, Blowup won the Grand Prix. LESS

Julio Cortázar is an argentinian writer, of an incredible style, who made "Las babas del diablo", from where the story was taken. In this Film also The Yardbirds perform Stroll on, a stylish raging Mod song, a permited version of "Train Kept A-Rollin". Originally, The Who were approached, but they declined, and then The In-Crowd had been planned but they were unable to attend the filming. The Yardbirds filled in at short notice, and the guitar that Beck smashes at the end of their set is a replica of Steve Howe's instrument. Antonioni instructed Beck to smash his guitar in emulation of The Who's Pete Townshend In 1967 antonioni won the Golden Palm in Cannes for this film, and also the Critic's Award in 1968 for Best Foreign Film.
