There is also Kenneth Anger, a book by Alice L. Hutchison, published in
2004 by Black Dog Publishing. That book has several images from a
Midsummer Night's Dream and cites them as "production stills,
collection of Kenneth Anger." If they match other pictures from his
childhood, that would seem reasonable evidence. . . . But it seems
surprising that this sort of information wouldn't be documented
somewhere. Was all related paper work on the movie lost?
