    Beschreibung "n 1959 Pull My Daisy, a short movie written by Jack Kerouac and directed by Alfred Leslie and Robert Frank, had its premiere in New York City. The film was highly praised by critics like Jonas Mekas as one of the most compelling productions of the New Cinema Group, as an example of a revolutionary cinematographic style, with its "fresh, lively sketch of Beat life". The movie, in fact, was not aimed at reproducing the naturalistic style of a journalistic documentary, where the events are recorded just as they happen. The true "revolutionary" form of improvisation that Leslie, Frank and Kerouac wanted to realize, both on a structural and on a thematic level, was the one that distinguished the jam sessions of bebop jazz players. Their ultimate goal was the filmic version of what Charlie Parker did as a soloist: an intimate, spontaneous creation that was released inside a pre-established melodic frame. Bebop had revealed how new harmonic creations were hidden in the structure of the traditional swing standards and the major players who were unveiling this secret were black musicians, trying to finally break the racial discrimination which still existed on the musical stage. With Pull My Daisy Beat artists like Kerouac, Leslie and Frank were trying to produce a similar effect within the filmic field. They were creating a new form of cinema by manipulating the initial script with an improvised acting style. At the same time they were showing how non-canonic intellectuals, outside the boundaries of the academic world often produced the most innovative artistic creations. This paper analyses the ways in which Pull My Daisy realizes, just like bebop, this double stylistic and cultural revolution and the similarities between its improvisational poetics and the one initiated by master soloist like Bird."
