Homage to Catatonia: A history of drugs and the movies

L.A. Weekly
United States
July 6, 2001
Paul Cullum's article is about drugs in movies, so it had to mention Otto Preminger's Skidoo:
[Skidoo] remains one of the most blinkered cultural documents of an already disintegrating age. Jackie Gleason plays a hit-man convict who is accidentally dosed with a tab of acid. In his final role, Groucho Marx plays a gangster named "God," while Carol Channing, dressed in a sunshine-yellow Rudi Gernreich pantsuit, leads a phalanx of body-painted hippies across San Francisco Bay. Ostensibly a prison comedy, the film ends with everyone aloft in a hot-air balloon as the final credits are sung by composer Harry Nilsson down to "Copyright M-C-M-L-X-V-I-I-I." For those who missed the point, the trailer starred Timothy Leary.
