"FROM RUNAWAY TO HIPPIE" 1968 ANTI-RECREATIONAL DRUG USE SCARE FILM SAN FRANCISCO HIPPIES XD65634
Produced in 1968 by the Cinema Verite Co., in cooperation with NBC News, "From Runaway to Hippie" presents a critical view of the “drop-out” society. The film includes a report on drug abuse among American youth. These juvenile delinquents and their attraction to anti-establishment communities -- such as San Francisco's hippies -- are shown as an example and a warning. The film intended to present itself as a cautionary tale, demonstrating to young people the dangers of taking drugs. The film was researched and photographed by Johann Rush, written and narrated by Jack Perkins, with title music by The Truth. (The song used by the Truth was covered by Kenny & the Kasuals on the album Shades of Night, titled “Chimes on 42nd Street.”)
