Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1972. Two vintage studio still photographs from the 1972 film.

Based on the 1971 novel by Michael Crichton and his brother Douglas (under the pseudonym "Michael Douglas"), about a Harvard law student (Lyons) who is sent from Boston to San Francisco to smuggle a shipment of marijuana. He convinces the drug dealer (Lithgow) to have a girl (Hershey) he met in San Francisco bring another shipment, so he can see her again. The girl gets busted, but only for half of the shipment, as the other half is taken by a corrupt cop (Charles Durning). They attempt to steal back the stolen half, but in doing so accidentally steal an additional $80,000 in heroin. The ever-relevant John Lithgow made his film debut, and Barbara Hershey confirms her status as an ideal 1970s "hippie chick."
