Drugs: A Day in the Death of Donny B. - 1969 anti-heroin film.


Poor Donny B. ... forever wandering the streets looking for that fix to end all fixes. Those around him, his family, people in the neighborhood, functionaries in the system, however, know what's in store ... the degradation of junkie-life.

A surprisingly non-sanctimonious anti-smack film, this 1969 cautionary tale uses a docudrama motif underscored by a groovy soundtrack the kids can dig.

'A Day in the Death of Donny B.' makes for a thoroughly entertaining short.
