Richard Lerner's highly acclaimed film was originally released in 1987.

An illuminating tribute to Jack Kerouac, king of the Beat Generation and author of ON THE ROAD, a cultural icon whose influence is felt around the world.

The words come from Kerouac himself, as well as fellow Beat writers, his ex-wife and ex-girlfriend, his daughter, his priest, and the incredible footage of Kerouac on the Steve Allen (1959) and William Buckley (1968) TV shows. This revealing portrait shows us what happened when fame and notoriety were thrust upon an essentially reticent man.

3DD is representing the original film (now remastered) for the World ex USA & Canada. 3DD is also releasing the film on DVD in the UK, in association with Fremantle Media in early September 2012.
