So there’s a place we occasionally go on this blog under the rubric of “Beat Kitsch” (see here and here and here) and it’s time for that (indulgence) once again. Let’s start with the absolute lowest on the totem pole – Beany and Cecil, literally, cartoon Beatniks! (a cartoon of a cartoon!)
tho’ the Beat poet parody in Roger Corman’s 1959 A Bucket of Blood is hardly much closer as a register of versimilitude!
It is possible, by the way, to view that classic “B” movie in its entirety – here
More Beat Kitsch anon
