Movie Info

This independent film by Ron Rice finds The Flower Thief (Taylor Mead) as a homosexual beatnik who walks around San Francisco. With a stolen flower, a teddy bear and an American flag, he gets into a series of misadventures that lead him up a hill before he descends in a children's wagon. Filmed in 1959 through 1960, the incidents foreshadowed the hippie movement by several years. Claude Debussy's music is used for the soundtrack in this early counter-culture feature.

Taylor Mead traipses with elfin glee through a lost San Francisco of smoke-stuffed North Beach caf├ęs, oceanside fairgrounds, and collapsed post-industrial ruins.

Top Critic

Mead's acting has been compared with that of Buster Keaton and Charles Chaplin, and that's not as large a stretch as it sounds.
