Movie about the birth of LSD in the USA, originally introduced by the CIA as a mind-control drug.  LSD in the early days was not taken by hippies but first by crew-cut Company men and then by West Coast intellectuals and entertainment people.  Cary Grant was an enthusiast.  Cary Grant on LSD is a sight that should be recreated on film at least once, since to my knowledge it was never captured the first time, tragically.  In any case, the CIA story is a sordid tale of square-jawed spooks dosing both each other and unwitting victims in order to perfect their creepy drug, which eventually gets loose and blows people’s minds.
