This is Jim Morrison's independent film HWY An American Pastoral starring Himself as The Hitch hiker. An extremely rare video that is out of print and very hard to find. This movie is based along the lines of the song Rider on the Storm. This film is very unique and interesting knowing this film is from the mind of Jim Morrison. Just watching the Great legend be himself in the film is awesome.

The running time of this video is Approximately 51 minutes. This is very old footage the quality of this film is Great. If you are a Jim Morrison and The Doors fanatic like myself, This video would be much appreciated.

James Douglas Morrison (December 8, 1943 – July 3, 1971) was an American singer, songwriter, poet, writer and filmmaker. He is best known as the lead singer and lyricist of The Doors and is widely considered to be one of the most charismatic frontmen in rock music history. He was also the author of several books of poetry and the director of a documentary and short film. Although Morrison was known for his baritone vocals, many fans, scholars and journalists alike have referenced his theatrical stage persona, self-destructive lifestyle and his work as a poet. He was ranked number 47 on Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Singers of All Time".

Death
Jim Morrison's grave at Père-Lachaise.Morrison moved to Paris in March 1971, took up residence in an apartment, and went for long walks through the city, admiring the city's architecture.

During that time, Morrison grew a beard, and by all accounts, became depressed and was planning to return to the US.

It was in Paris that Morrison made his last studio recording with two American street musicians — a session dismissed by Manzarek as "drunken gibberish". The session included a version of a song-in-progress, "Orange County Suite", which can be heard on the bootleg The Lost Paris Tapes.

Morrison died on July 3, 1971. In the official account of his death, he was found in a Paris apartment bathtub by Courson. Pursuant to French law, no autopsy was performed because the medical examiner claimed to have found no evidence of foul play. The absence of an official autopsy has left many questions regarding Morrison's cause of death.
