Sure, we can all write or draw stuff when tripping on hallucinogens, but what a special thing to be able to make a whole movie out of the process.
COUNTERPOINT: if you watch the whole movie it's painfully obvious that everyone involved is completely out of touch with the youth culture they're trying to relate to. Except Groucho and Nillson, they always get it.
The garbage can song alone makes this one of the best of its kind.
According to the legend, Groucho did actually take LSD during the filming of this movie. He described it as "gentle and pleasant", which I find heartwarming in a way. Nilsson, who is always awesome, hadn't started taking LSD yet, and when he finally did, it resulted in "The Point", which isn't on POETV and that is *tragic*.
I knew Groucho tried acid but I didn't realize it was when he was making this. Also thought Nillson started earlier.
The Point is the only Nillson record I own, apart from a record of big band Nillson covers that has about half a dozen solid breaks on it.
I wish more movie trailers would just sing the cast list
I saw Leary speak in college during his later years of discovering "the trips you can have with computers and all its virtual reality"....man
This whole trailer is about the Cannonball Run, don't let them fool you.
Kids wear beads, right? Kids like beads, right?
With music and lyrics by Harry Nilsson.
Otto Preminger pulled it from circulation after 5 days due to embarrassment, and it was never officially released again.
At least that's the story I always heard.
