Poet Frank O’Hara reading his poems, typing, collaborating

Some totally charming footage (16 minutes) of poet Frank O’Hara in his New York City studio. He reads some of his poetry, which is very engaging and spontaneous, and he also is shown working on a script (with a typewriter!) in a collaboration with artist and filmmaker Alfred Leslie. The footage was shot with 16mm film in 1966 so what’s not to like?
