* {{Narrator}}
{{Narrator}}: No synchronized sound was recorded. Instead, Kerouac gives an irreverent narration throughout in which he delivers all the "dialogue" himself.

* {{Beatnik}}
{{Beatnik}}: Milo's wife upbraids him for letting a bunch of beatniks spoil dinner with the bishop. And although the original Beats weren't truly "Beatniks", Kerouac's sassy disrespect for authority, as well as the little improvisational jazz concert the gang has towards the end, are true to the beatnik stereotype.
* {{Chiaroscuro}}
{{Chiaroscuro}}: Filmed in stark black-and-white with some mood lighting, like when the bishop and his mother are shown as black silhouettes against the sun streaming in from the door.
* ImagineSpotImagineSpot: At one point Kerouac imagines the bishop's talk as him giving a speech, with Milo's wife holding an oversized flag on a staff--the flag keeps hitting the bishop in the face.


* AsHimself: Kerouac, Ginsberg, and their fellow Beat poets Peter Orlovsky and Gregory Corso appear as themselves.
