Movie Info

New York City has long been one of the cultural capitals of the world, and as the United States would go through a period of personal, political, and artistic tumult in the 1960s, the first waves of this shift in America's attitudes were felt in New York in the 1950s. New York in the Fifties is a documentary, adapted from the book of the same name by Dan Wakefield, that looks back at life in the Big Apple as beat poetry, free jazz, and new movements in abstract art began to change the way people

It doesn't present a very thorough vicarious experience of the New York scene, but it does present conversations with some of the period's most interesting people.

A likeable documentary that strives to tie up a number of cultural themes and make sense of a very disparate group of 1950s social and artistic innovators, and even a few phonies.

If anything, "New York in the Fifties" is too short leaving the scope of the film somewhat lacking.
