On the Bowery: A documentary film of men living on the Bowery. Depicts life inside the bars and on the sidewalks, the alcoholism and unemployment and life on the streets. Good times, wonderful times: This antiwar film predated Viet Nam, but had great impact in the sixties. The film cuts between documentary war footage and extemporized conversations.

VERY GOOD example of 'docufilm' (new to me term, I got from the OTB Wikipedia article), where a tiny plot is tacked on to the primary film purpose - documentation of actual Bowery. Excellent street, and inside various bars, hotels and more footage. Apparently the film itself has been restored and looks very good.
