Kerouac Videos

Today marks the 40th anniversary of Jack Kerouac‘s death (at the age of 47). For some Kerouac-related media, we recommend this archive called Digital Beats.

The brief video clips include a rambling and bored Kerouac having a halfway conversation with the insufferable host of Firing Line, William F. Buckley, Jr; Allen Ginsberg talking about Kerouac (and staring at his grave marker with Bob Dylan); and CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite announcing Kerouac’s untimely death.
