Can Hieronymus Merkin Ever Forget Mercy
Humppe and Find True Happiness?
You will either love this movie as incredible camp or hate it as incredible crap. I saw it in the early 1970's and as a movie it is very forgettable. Lots of big stars pushing the 1969 censors to the limits. I just remember the catchy title.
Fritz the Cat
The first feature length cartoon movie to get an X rating. R. Crumb famous from the underground Zap comics created the character but was evidently disappointed by this result. It starts out funny and ends up as a depressing, degenerate romp through drug infested hippie land in New York city. I saw this when it first (and last?) came out in 1972 and remember almost nothing about it. It might be an interesting relic of its time.
