Sid's remake of The Terrible Truth is, in many ways, superior to it, if only because by the mid-sixties there were a lot more ways for kids to get themselves into trouble. This is a warning about the path of casual drug usage leading to "the point of no return" and the user being permanently lost to society. Jeanette is introduced to drugs through her new boyfriend and casually pops pills for the first time. However, she rapidly progresses into more extreme forms of drug usage,...

Released the same year as two other films with which it shares similarities:...
