The Subterraneans

Los Angeles: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1960. Original set of twelve color still photographs from the 1960 film. From one perspective, a fairly one-dimensional representation--perhaps even a caricature--of Beat culture, but culturally fascinating in that it was made at the height of the Beat era, and is to date the only feature-length film ever made from a Kerouac novel. Further, the film was made with A-list talent and by a top studio. Kerouac was paid $15,000 by MGM for the rights to the book, and bought his first home with the proceeds, on Long Island. A film that rarely screened today, and has never been available on any kind of home viewing format. While its perspective on the actual Beat scene may be skewed or wildly misinterpreted, it is nonetheless important as an interpretation of Kerouac's world from the outside looking in. 8 x 10 inches. Fine condition. [Book #122120]
