Incredible, trashy drug adventure starring Vincent Price as Tomas De Quincey, an early 19th-century adventurer involved with helping runaway slave girls and victims of a tong war in San Francisco. Garbed in black from head to toe, Price narrates his adventures. The highlight: a long, unbelievable, violent, slow-motion drug trip/fight scene—worth the price of admission! In the late ‘60s this Albert Zugsmith epic was a favorite of drugged patrons at midnight shows. At the slave auction where beautiful Oriental girls are displayed in hanging bamboo cages, Vincent befriends a tiny wisecracking female Oriental dwarf. The tong leader turns out to be a woman in drag and the story ends in a sewer. At least real Orientals were given major roles for a change. It was Zugsmith’s last production shown legally to viewers under 18. His next was Fanny Hill, directed by Russ Meyer.
