A Beat Film: Pull My Daisy (1959)

I must have not been paying attention all these years, because I've only just now discovered that there's actually a Beat film called Pull My Daisy (1959), adapted from the third act of Jack Kerouac's Beat Generation. Written and narrated by Kerouac, it stars Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, Peter Orlovsky, and some other people with whom I'm not familiar.

Anyway, there's not much more to say other than it is a superb example of full-grown poets acting like a bunch of crazy kids.
