The Cool School is an excellent look into the lives of some of the seminal artists creating their own scene in Los Angeles in the 1950s and 1960s. The film focuses around the Ferus Gallery and the artist, actors, and other creative types who were part of its success. Guest appearances come from Dennis Hopper, Ed Ruscha and narration by Jeff Bridges. It might take a little digging, but the DVD can be found on eBay and Amazon.
