Reefer Madness (aka Doped Youth)
1936 — USA — B&W
Drama — 56 minutes
Directed by Louis J. Gasnier
Starring Dorothy Short, Kenneth Craig, Lillian Miles
Peer through the haze of marihuana smoke as
this over the top film follows a group of dope-smoking students descending into the depths of
hell. Yes, the evil weed marihuana will drive you insane! Structured almost like a government
propaganda film, the plot revolves around the murders of a student and a drug dealer.
Viewed from the sophistication of today's
films, this movie is so corn-ball and goofy that it is actually rather hilarious and
entertaining. One wonders if our predecessors were really so naïve.
