I saw a film in 1958/59 which had a great deal to do with the art world called Pull My Daisy. There was a new spirit in the air we were emerging from the 50s and there was a new questioning that meshed with my own mood. Id been a radical at the age of sixteen, then I became quiet. Pull My Daisy was shot by Alfred Leslie and Robert Frank. Allen Ginsberg and Larry Rivers were in it. It was the most brilliant text that Jack
Kerouac had ever done. I liked the film because it was a very grubby little film, very cheaply made. It was a very alive film and it had a great sense of black and white which I liked. I was suddenly looking at films, looking at films I should have seen before, and I was excited by them. (Emile de Antonio)
