The Flower Thief
(Ron Rice, 1961). A founding work of underground movies, Ron Rices North Beach picaresque used army-surplus 16mm to document Taylor Meads wistfully infantile antics. Unscripted and genuinely haphazard, The Flower Thief posited life as a movie. It was praised in these pages by Jonas Mekas for exhibiting the utmost disrespect for the professional camera, plot, character conventions.
