“Drink and Be Merry”!
Hope you enjoy my 1992 film Thomas Morton & The Maypole of Merrymount: Disorder in the American Wilderness 1622-1647, which by actual request is now complete (1hr47mins.) at YouTube.
A low-tech production on a shoestring budget via friends and local Public Access cable—damaged in a spot or two. But I think it captures Morton’s sweetness and courage, via many strong contributions from Native American and other scholars and performers who appreciated his achievements and “solemn foolery.”
A foundational American story, born from our first grand frontier party staged “for all comers” living on the land.
