On September 11th 1967 Bowie was issued a contract with Border Films to play the part of the boy in The Image. He was to receive the Equity minimum of £10 per day with a minimum payment of £30. His first experience in front of a film camera started on September 13th and took three days. Whilst he earned the guaranteed minimum of £30, parts of his "costume" were his own clothes. The shirt and shoes were ruined by the soaking so Ken Pitt billed Border Films for their cost of £4, 19 shillings and sixpence!
Michael Armstrong described the film as "a study of the illusionary reality world within the schizophrenic mind of the artist at his point of creativity".
The NME later said " Gasp with horror as your hero gets murdered, not once, not twice but five times. Gasp with astonishment as he gets up entirely unharmed. Wonder with puzzlement how his acting career ever survived the carnage".
