 Pull My Daisy (1959)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
It is easy to say that Pull My Daisy is the epitome of "beat generation" cinema.
Pull My Daisy is based on the third act of a play written by beat generation mastermind Jack Kerouac untitled The Beat Generation (which was changed because MGM had the copyright to Beat Generation because of a low budget B-movie made by the studio in the late 50's).
Pull My Daisy is the shining star of the cannon of "The New American Cinema" and is a film that should forever be preserved for generations of alienated film makers and cinema fans.

 COLUMN TWENTY-ONE, MAY 1,
My contact with Allen' helped me arrive at the belief that secrets are the tools of tyranny and that knowledge, like air and sunlight, belongs to everyone.
My elder son, Myles, who is making a name for himself as a photographer, is another one insisting that Allen had a heart of gold.
In my opinion, Rosebud Pettet, who has known Allen for almost as long as I've known him and who is one of Allen's most dedicated disciples, provided one of the most touching moments of the afternoon by reading her poignant story of Allen's last days.

 Shadows: Shadows and Pull My Daisy
Shadows was preceded on the program by Robert Frank and Alfred Leslie's recently completed Pull My Daisy (which had been partially inspired by the Paris Theater screening of Shadows the year before).
Shadows and Pull My Daisy define alternative paths for the first generation of American independent filmmaking – a path of frivolousness and a path of responsibility.
Pull My Daisy may be charming and fun, but it is ultimately a frivolous work, because it imagines creativity as off to the side of the "real world," something that you do on your days off-spouting doggerel and clowning around at home.

Pull My Daisy, co-directed with Robert Frank and shot in Leslie’s loft studio, is a landmark of American underground films, now part of the National Film Registry.
The film in fact suggests that everything profane -- including the daisies between the homosexual poets’ legs -- is sacred, as an exchange with the bishop suggests.
Thus the characters in Pull My Daisy are Icarian angels, trying to fly as they fall, beaten down by the everyday world outside the studio.

My placement within scare quotes of the common term for beret-covered, bongo-carrying, scat-singing, goatee-wearing bohemians is highly advised, since Amram repeatedly insists that there never were any such animals.
Several recollections in the book are great fun, especially Amram's recounting of the cuckoo creation of the silent film Pull My Daisy, which consisted largely of the trashing of a New York City apartment to the accompaniment of Amram's music and Kerouac's improvised narration.

 Beat Cinema 1: Pull My Daisy
Pull My Daisy received its theatrical premiere on November 11, 1959 at Cinema 16, on a double bill with John Cassavetes’ Shadows.
They called the poem “Pull My Daisy,” after the first line — slang for the act of removing a stripper’s g-string (hence the name of Leslie’s production company).
The film suffers slightly from technical limitations, particularly in the sound recording, and it is perhaps a less eventful film than Pull My Daisy — certainly it’s much more off-the-cuff (Frank was recovering from illness while shooting it).

Pull My Daisy was praised for years as a masterwork of free-form "blowing" before Alfred Leslie revealed in a November 28, 1968 Village Voice article that its scenes were as completely scripted, blocked, and rehearsed as those in a Hitchcock movie.
The Beat vision almost always conceptualizes experience in terms of such dichotomous alternatives–whether the dichotomies are tragic in effect (Howl's angel-headed hipsters versus Moloch) or comic (Pull My Daisy's Peter versus the Bishop).

It was called Pull My Daisy, a title borrowed from the early poem by Ginsberg which had appeared in the magazine Neurotica.
Although Alfred Leslie directed Pull my Daisy, it was Frank’s lens and Frank’s eye that pulled the focus and framed the scenes, so this gives us a great oppportunity to watch a gifted artists working across two technologies.
