Accidental Icon: The Real Gidget Story

Accidental Icon: The Real Gidget Story
1:00:31 | 2011

Categories: Documentary, Action, Sports

Documentarian Brian Gillogly tells the story of how this 15 year old girl from Brentwood almost inadvertently opened the door for women into a previously male domain, and became surfing's first feminist, inspiring future champions like Layne Beachley, who was known exclusively as Gidget until she became a household name in her own right. Gidget truly embodies the title of her father's first book "Gidget - A Little Girl With Big Dreams".

Summertime, Malibu, longboards, the collective legends of the 'bu gathered together to reminisce about the glory days of surfing, set against the life story of the real Gidget, Kathy Kohner-Zuckerman - what's not to love about that combo! Thoughtful exploration of late 50's / 60's surfing action in Southern California. The documentary explores input from many of the legends who thrust surfing into popular culture around the time of the release of the book and film "Gidget". The film is full of wonderful historic film clips and photos that transport you back to the "Golden Daze" of surfing in Southern California, and brings things full-circle with interviews of many of today's top women professional surfers. The soundtrack includes many tunes from, who else, but The Malibooz, John Zambetti, & Walter Egan. All this adds up to a solid "A" in my line-up of favorite documentaries. The surf is definitely "up" with this gem.
