“On the Road” at Cannes

The film version of Kerouac’s On the Road is showing in Cannes at the famous film festival. Fortunately, the critics do not like it. Being liked by critics at Cannes usually sounds the death knell.

In a  related story here is the arrival of the Kerouac scroll manuscript for display in Paris:

Jim Canary from Bloomington, IN, is the guy with the beard. He cares for the manuscript and travels with it (he terms it Jack-in-a-box) to assist in display. The manuscript is currently owned by Jim Irsay, the indianapolis owner of the Colts NFL team, and you can see Jim sporting the Colts horseshoe logo.
