Lowell Naeve

He Couldn't Take It () 16mm, black and white, 11 min

Genre: Experimental

"Features Ted Bailey, who aspires to live a quiet existence. On this particular occasion he tries to concentrate upon reading a book but the communications media have made thie inroads; the revved-up war news of the radio persists in intruding. Pop tunes, one hardly distinguishable from another, also puncture his concentration, as do the laxative commercials and stock market reports. "At last he is enticed out of the comfort of his home and is convinded he should race in pursuit of a tremendous bonus in trading stamps. In his acceleration he loses his life, but he does attain the serentiy he so ardently desired. His funeral comes off without a hitch. " L.N.
