Riot on Sunset Strip (1967)

SHARE

LA bad-girl (Mimsy Farmer) gets involved with a gang of drugged-out hippie scum who feed her drugs and rape her at a party, much to the annoyance of her policeman father (Aldo Ray).

riotsunsetstrip2Inspired by the real-life Sunset Strip riots (which only occurred six weeks prior to the release of this film), Riot on Sunset Strip was the Reefer Madness of its day, and ridiculing the love and peace generation was an easy target (so all the hippies are doped-up Nazis).

The soundtrack is by local garage kings The Standells, who are seen in the film performing (along with The Chocolate Watchband) at Pandora’s Box on the Sunset Strip.
