Abstract:

Pull my daisy: "Milo is a railroad brakeman, his wife a painter. They have some poet friends who spend a good bit of time hanging out at their apartment. When Milo and his wife are visited by their bishop, they naturally would like their friends to be on their best behavior. But poets will be poets"--Internet Movie Database (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052100/plotsummary).

The last clean shirt: A couple drives around Manhattan in a convertible.

Birth of a nation: Originally filmed in 1965, this film was largely destroyed in a fire. Leslie recovered 14 minutes of footage and some sound elements in this 2007 restoration. The film is a "wild counterculture opera which included inter-racial marriage, a claustrophobic ménage a trois, lesbian parents, masturbation, suicide, a number of musical interludes and apparently lots of telephones ringing"--Booklet.

USA: poetry, Frank O'Hara: Frank O'Hara reads poetry and discusses filmmaking with Alfred Leslie.

A stranger calls at midnight: Alfred Leslie discusses his life and works.
