Ron Rice

Flower Thief, The (1960) 16mm, DVD NTSC, black and white, 58 min

Genre: Experimental

Starring Taylor Mead "In the old Hollywood days movie studios would keep a man on the set who, when all other sources of ideas failed (writers, directors, was called upon to 'cook up' something for filming. He was called The Wild Man. THE FLOWER THIEF has been put together in memory of all dead wild men who died unnoticed in the field of stunt." -- R.R. "Rice, by deliberately flouting established movie making traditions, reveals himself primarily as a professional rebel rather than the leader of a new movement. But in the highly specialized area of experimental films, he has produced a major work."-- Eugene Archer, The New York Times.

Senseless (1962) 16mm, black and white, 28 min

Genre: Experimental

Soundtrack: Bartok, Mexican and Indian music; Edited by Howard Everngam. "Consisting of a poetic stream of razor-sharp images, the overt content of SENSELESS portrays ecstatic travelers going to pot over the fantasies and pleasures of a trip to Mexico... highly effective cutting subtly interweaves the contrapuntal developement of themes of love and hate, peace and violence, beauty an ddestruction."-- David Brooks.

After his death, Howard Everngam, and old friend of Ron's, according to his best knowledge of the filmmaker's intentions, put together a version of the film which was available through the Film-Makers' Cooperative until now. In 1979-82, using SHEBA materials deposited with Anthology Film Archives, and guiding himself by memory and notes made during the shooting, Taylor Mead prepared the present, definitive version of the film, and the soundtrack. The previous versions of the film--Everngam's and Ron's fund-raising versions are being preserved at Anthology for scholarly use."-Jonas Mekas.
