Robert Frank and Alfred Leslie, working with close friend Jack Kerouac, made this classic short in 1959. Carried purely by Kerouac’s witty free-associative narration, the film concerns a husband and wife who are hosting a renowned bishop at their house while simultaneously catering to their group of Beatnik friends. Although (largely) scripted by Kerouac and professionally shot by one of America’s premier photographers, the production feels slapdash, as if it was tossed together as a spur-of-the-moment project by a group of close friends.
