Henry Miller on New York

(NOTE: some strong language here...)

Back in 1975, filmmaker Tom Schiller (only 20 years old at the time) made a short documentary on the novelist Henry Miller (Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn). In the scene above, Miller, then 81 years old, reminisces about his difficult early life in New York, and it all takes place on the set used to shoot the movie Hello, Dolly!. Schiller’s complete film, Henry Miller Asleep and Awake, can be watched for free on Snagfilms. (It’s also available at Amazon on DVD here.) The run time is 34 minutes. Excellent find by Mike.

Note: We’ve added Henry Miller Asleep and Awake to our growing film collection: Free Movies Online: Great Classics, Indies, Film Noir, Documentaries & More
