“The Caroling” – A Rock Movie Set in the ’60s
Carole King and Carol Kaye were two of the most influential women in music history. Put them together in a semi-fictitious comedy/thriller about the 1960s music industry and you’ve got a smash hit on your hands.
Two of the most influential women in rock music history were Carole King and Carol Kaye. King was a prodigal songwriter who stepped out of the shadows to launch her own performance career. Kaye was a talented bass player who performed on albums by some of the most popular acts of the 1960s and 70s.
We propose a movie or musical plot which involves the two women going up against the challenges of a mostly male-dominated industry. It would be a semi-fictitious thriller/comedy in which both women are thrown together in a plot involving other 60s icons and some of the less-egalitarian management types. Perhaps other female stars like Joni Mitchell, Janis Joplin and Ronnie Spector could figure in as well.
