While "Reefer Madness" portrayed a somewhat hyperventilated view of the effects of drug use, this bold drama attempts a more realistic look at narcotics addicts trying to kick their dangerous habits. In order to bolster the film's feeling of authenticity, the movie was filmed at the Synanon House, an actual rehabilitation facility located in Santa Monica, California. Edmond O'Brien, Eartha Kitt, and Chuck Connors star. 104 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
