A giddy exploitation movie winkingly put forth as a cautionary tale, "Narcotic" (1933) tells the story of an idealistic medical student (Harry Cording) whose life is quickly thrown into a hellish downward spiral after being introduced to the pleasures of opium. With his marriage in a shambles, the disgraced would-be doctor soon finds himself working at a carnival freak show, wallowing in orgies of sex and cocaine and ultimately hopelessly addicted to heroin. Produced outside the studio system and before the draconian Production Code was instituted, this film by exploitation master Dwain Esper is considered by many to be his best.
