McNeil's Movie Korner
"McNeil's Movie Korner." McNeil called recently to expound on the many similarities between the Frank Sinatra/Dean Martin movie MARRIAGE ON THE ROCKS and the Kerouac novel ON THE ROAD. "One of the guys is involved with a lot of women... they go to Mexico... one of them gets sick there and is left behind by his friend..." McNeil explained. In other startling news, the day before I bought SUPERGODS by Grant Morrison, McNeil emailed me about the Ann-Margret film THE SWINGER. What obscure movie should Grant Morrison bring up in his book but... THE SWINGER? And whom does he place in the same sentence? Kerouac! So it all comes together in a conspiracy of unimaginable proportions.
