What Happened To Kerouac? (DVD)

Richard Lerner and Lewis MacAdams

DVD Currently unavailable


Jack Kerouac was the father of the Beat Generation, author of "On The Road" and pivotal figure of the fifties countercultural revolution. This portrait shows us what happened when fame and notoriety were thrust upon an essentially reticent man. What Happened To Kerouac? is a lively and revealing investigation into the personal history and creative process Kerouac speaks for himself most eloquently in television appearances with Steve Allen and William Buckley along with a fine visual tribute featuring his poetry. The result is a terrifying and exhilarating film about a troubled genius whose influence is still being felt all over the world.
