DEATH COMES IN SMALL DOSES 1957
U.S. film. "Thrill Pills!" Long haul, truck-driving speed freaks hopped up on amphetamines frequent truck stops to swing dance to the jiving sounds on the jukebox and score their "bennies."

Chuck Connors (from Rifleman fame) is a hip-talking, dilated-eyed, crazed speed freak who talks a mile-a-minute and looks like he's going to bust out of his skin at any moment.

Death Comes in Small Doses feels like a pulp fiction, adult-themed, exposé paperback novel with its magnetically tawdry tale of a federal agent (Peter Graves) trying to crack a drug ring that preys on long-haul truckers and supplies them with speed.

It's no French Connection, but the film is a fascinating glimpse of a bygone era and if you dig low-budget AA features from the fifties this one is definitely worth a look. "...Ripped from the pages of today's headlines." Peter Graves, Mala Powers, Chuck Connors, Robert Williams, Roy Engel, Merry Anders, Harry Lauter. Death Comes in Small Doses.

Plus this bonus selection...

THE DISTANT DRUMMER: A MOVABLE SCENE 1968
U.S. documentary. Actor Robert Mitchum narrates this film about the youth subculture surrounding illegal drugs. There are lots of scenes of hippies rolling joints, dropping acid, and shooting speed and heroin.

Rambling interviews with pimple-faced, teenage druggie burnouts. A study of the drug and youth sub-cultures that thrive in bohemian enclaves in San Francisco, London, Rome, Istanbul, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Crete, Morocco, Katmandu, etc. Psychedelic light shows, distorted fuzz guitar and spaced out gyrating dancing.
