A screening of “The Cocaine Fiends,” the second film in the Exploitation Film Series hosted by Todd Michael Kwait and Robert Banks of Independent Pictures, will be held in the art center. The so-called “educational” aspects of these films allowed the depiction of taboo subjects that were prohibited by The Motion Picture Code. Watching these films today is a real hoot! They are best enjoyed as a group activity, primed by liquor, etc. Come on down and have a blast! Admission is free!
The Cocaine Fiends (1936) 60 Minutes, Directed by William A. O’Conner. A small town girl is offered “headache powder” which turns out to be cocaine. The moral of the story, do not sniff white powder.
