Otto Preminger’s legendary disaster was also Groucho Marx’s last movie, and he’s awful in it. The director’s characteristic browbeating probably didn’t help him much. Like Roger Corman, Preminger experimented with LSD to make this movie, but a few screenings of this hopelessly clueless effort could fund another ten years of “Just Say NO” propaganda. As usual for this point in Otto’s career. A great, if bizarre, cast is wasted.
