The Subterraneans (Film version)

The Subterraneans: George Peppard as Jack Kerouac.

On the Road is finally a movie, haven't seen it yet but remember well the
many tries Hollywood has made at catching the Kerouac magic on film... like
the bizarre sight of a white Mardou with George Peppard as Jack.

"George Peppard played a bohemian... He loved playing roles that were not
the norm. He enjoyed a role that was different. At this time, George
himself, was quite the bohemian. He had lived in Greenwich Village among the
artists, writers, and beatnik philosophers of his time. This was familiar
territory to George. So here he is... The young and handsome George Peppard
in rare footage from his first major starring role, in "The Subterraneans"
with his co-star, Leslie Caron..."
